Scams are an unfortunate aspect of our life; in many case a company may look genuine, however in reality it could turn out to be a scam. If the quantity of purchase is more then try to visit the company and physically verify the quality of the product. In case if you are unable to meet them personally then assign any thirty-party company for background checks, they will help prevent you from fraudulent companies. They will investigate and provide you with comprehensive company reports which include the ownership data, work history, commercial licenses, credit ratings of the company etc. This information will help you to make some better decisions before fixing the deal.
Knowing the people behind a company is becoming increasingly important in the business life and business ethics are one of the most important aspects of long-term success.
Before doing any financial transaction, please make sure the products are the same one which you are ordered and in good condition. Avoid giving any personal information over telephone or email like bank / credit card details etc. Do not pay any advance payment to anyone until you conduct a detailed study about their product, the reliability of the company, the return or refund policies, check for the ratings and reviews of suppliers/buyers, use alternate payment methods like PayPal etc. if credit card doesn’t seem safe, letter of credit (L/C) is the ideal payment method in the overseas trade, to safe guard the quality of products you can demand the supplier for a pre-shipment inspection, make sure to deal with the authorised person of the company, engage only with trusted shipping companies. Additionally, you can also avail the transaction settlement services of the Export Credit Guarantee Agency S.A.O.C. (Credit Oman).
Always compare the product price, specification etc. and beware if the goods are cheaper than normal. Also, be cautious if the company is putting pressure on you to make a quick decision. Please do not neglect or ignore to collect a signed proof of purchase like invoice, catalogue, warranty / guarantee letter, certificate of origin etc. Keep all the documents including email communication in safe custody for future reference.
