Consumer protection unaves a list of the most common surfaces on the Internet
Fruher warned Eden Zimmermann in ZDF in front of Neppers, tractors, farm farmers – today, at least part of these professional concerns are broadened to the internet, not only to pull the people on the ears of the ears. And quickly you can fall in the German part of the network on the tricks of the crooks. For example, if you follow the temptations of a porn provider that promises hot online sex. However, you can only "deliver", If you download yourself a program offered on the appropriate page. And that’s exactly how then automatically turns on the sex live pages – but an extremely expensive provider or a still expensive 0190 number.
Similar trap also describes the now published "dot con"-List that the top ten surfaces on the Internet. It was created by consumer protectioners, among others, in Germany, Australia, Great Britain and the USA. And with her, Jodie Bernstein hopes by the US Federal Trade Commission, the climate for the eCommerce is to be improved in the long term and brought more confidence in online businesses among customers: "We want to make the net for consumers safer."
A total of more than 285.000 complaints reached consumer protections worldwide, more than 1600 websites have been determined, which at least suggest the suspicion of fraud, and filthe were finally 251 cases in which laws are trying to pay at least a financial compensation for the damage caused by the customers reach.
