Buyer beware help and tips in purchasing games and cd keys

  1. 1. PLAYERAUCTIONS SECURITY IN PURCHASING GAMES AND CD KEYSWHEN IT COMES TO BUYING GAMES AND GAMING-RELATED PRODUCTS IN THIS DAY AND AGE, PLAYERS ARE NO LONGER LIMITED TO PROFIT- ORIENTED RETAILERS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY’RE FIRST-PARTY OR THIRD-PARTY. NOW, PLAYERS CAN CHOOSE TO GO TO SMALLER THIRD-PARTY SITES, CUSTOMER-TO-CUSTOMER PLATFORMS, OR EVEN SOMETHING AS DIRECT AS A BUYER-TO-SELLER DEAL. MORE OPTIONS, HOWEVER, ENTAILS GREATER RISK. UNFORTUNATELY, SOME SCAMMERS ENGAGE IN SHADY BUSINESS IN THE PLAYER TO PLAYER TRADING WORLD. TO AVOID PHISHING FROM PESKY PEOPLE, HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO FOLLOW.
  2. Contrary to popular trading belief, security doesn’t begin in choosing who you’ll be trading with because it starts with you (your password, to be exact). Before using an email or a social media account in your gaming-related online transactions, ensure that it has a secure password. A safe password is one that’s difficult to guess. Avoid using names or birthdays. Please don’t try to be clever and use “password.” Black hat hackers are aware of “password.” Instead, utilize either “pass phrases” that have no relation to your personal life, or a combination that seems random but isn’t.  No “Password” As Password GAMES AND CD KEYS
  3. CD Keys and What’s in a Site ONCE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT OR PASSWORD IS SECURE, YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND CHECK OUT THE DEALS ONLINE. JUST REMEMBER: YOU’RE THE ONE BROWSING, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. IF A SELLER CONTACTS YOU OFFERING A DEAL, DON’T TAKE IT NO MATTER HOW LUCRATIVE IT SOUNDS. IN MOST CASES, IT’S A TRAP. BEFORE VISITING A WEBSITE, RUN A GOOGLE SEARCH OF THE SITE’S NAME SINCE THE MOST RELEVANT HITS APPEAR FIRST. IF YOU SEE ANY SEARCH RESULTS THAT PERTAIN TO SCAMMING OR OTHER DUBIOUS STATEMENTS, THEN DON’T CLICK ON THE URL. IF YOU CLICKED ON THE URL, CHECK THE UI NEXT. IF THE SITE HAS A MESSY UI WITH TOO MANY POP-UPS AND ADS, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT ARE TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN THAT COULD BE A YELLOW FLAG. ON THE OTHER HAND, SOME PLAYER TO PLAYER SITES THAT HAVE LOTS OF ADS IS LEGITIMATE. SOME PLATFORMS HAVE POLISHED UI BUT ARE IN STILL SCAM SITES. WHILE THIS MAY SEEM LIKE JUDGING A BOOK BY ITS COVER, IT’S BETTER TO BE WRONG BUT SAFE. NO DEAL, AUTHENTIC OR OTHERWISE, NO HARM DONE. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, CHECK THE SITE’S SECURITY STATUS. YOU CAN FIND IT IN THE ADDRESS BAR NEXT TO THE URL. IF THE URL SAYS “HTTPS,” AND THE WORD “SECURE” NEXT TO IT IN GREEN TEXT WITH A PADLOCK, THEN THE SITE IS SECURE.
  4. PayingwiththeRightCard NOW, IF YOU’RE WARY OF GETTING SCAMMED BUT HAVE NO CHOICE OTHER THAN ONLINE THIRD-PARTY TRADING TO GET AN ITEM, CDKEYS, OR OTHER ONLINE GAME-RELATED STUFF, THEN USE A DEBIT CARD INSTEAD OF A CREDIT CARD. WHY? WELL, IF A PERPETRATOR GETS A HOLD OF YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS, THEY’LL USE IT UNTIL THE CARD MAXES OUT. UNFORTUNATELY, YOU’LL GET STUCK WITH THE BILL. WITH A DEBIT CARD, ON THE OTHER HAND, SCAMMERS CAN ONLY USE WHAT YOU PUT IN, SO STICK WITH IT WHEN BUYING FROM THIRD-PARTY SITES. ALSO, START OFF WITH A SMALL PURCHASE, IN CASE THE TRANSACTION GOES SOUR. THOSE ARE SOME AND THE MOST BASIC TIPS TO SHOULD FOLLOW IF YOU WANT TO STAY SECURE IN BUYING FROM THIRD- PARTY SITES AND PLAYER TO PLAYER PLATFORMS. SO, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO OUT THERE AND GET THE BEST DEALS FOR CDKEYS, SAFELY.  Posted at: Instructables.com © 2017 PlayerAuctions
