One of the largest scams known to this day takes place via email. Real-looking e-mails insists upon you to make your account up-to-date, such as PayPal, and informing you to go to the site using the link they already have given so you're able to promptly update your account information. Never visit web links like these and simply go to the website straightly. Be suspicious of dealers that boost the price of the item they have up for bid by bidding on their merchandise through fake accounts. If you notice a person attempting to outbid you but only with tiny amounts from your bid every time, chances are that bidder is a shill.
