We strive to protect our clients from potential scams. We want our clients to be confident in the quality of our services and trust the legitimacy of our offerings.
This post is intended to help our readers safeguard themselves from potential scams.
Identifying Fake Websites
Always make sure you’re visiting a company’s official and genuine website. This is crucial because official websites guarantee the security of your personal information and financial transactions.
To make things easier, we’ve compiled a quick list of indicators to help you distinguish between genuine and fraudulent websites. Once you know what to look for, you can easily spot and steer clear of fake websites:
Scammers often use URLs that look like the official website address but have slight variations. They may include additional words or change the domain extension.
AppsChopper, for instance, has only one official URL:
If a link redirects you to a website that doesn’t have this exact URL, for example, appschopper.vip, appschopper.xyz, appschopper.cc, appschopper.cyou, appschopper.shop, appschopper-uk.com, appschopper.co, appschopper.top, you are likely headed toward a trap.
Poor Website Design and Content Quality
There will be a noticeable difference in the website content between a real and a fake website. That’s because fake websites generally lack the professionalism and attention to detail shown by genuine companies.
Keep an eye out for signs of
- Low-quality design
- Spelling and grammatical errors
- Inconsistent branding
Legitimate companies like AppsChopper invest in maintaining a polished online presence.
Secure websites use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption to protect users’ data. Look for “https://” instead of “http://” at the beginning of the URL and a padlock icon in the browser address bar. These are important indicators of genuine websites.
Notice the padlock icon in the address bar in the following image:
Missing Contact Information
Authentic companies like AppsChopper provide comprehensive contact information. This includes a physical address, phone number, and email. If a website lacks these details or only provides generic email addresses, it may be a red flag indicating a fake website.
Reporting Fake Websites
Reporting any fake AppsChopper websites you encounter is crucial to prevent further harm to unsuspecting individuals. Please contact us (the official AppsChopper team) if you suspect a fraudulent website and provide us with its details, including the URL and any supporting evidence.
By doing so, you contribute to protecting others from falling victim to scams.
