Get Safe Online

Get Safe Online is the UK’s leading source of unbiased, factual, and easy-to understand information on online safety
Website Checker: A new initiative has been set up by Get Safe Online in collaboration with a number of partners (including the National Trading Standards Scams Team) to establish a way for people to check whether a website is likely to be legitimate or a scam. If you are getting adverts when on social media or just surfing online, a good way to check if these are real is to visit and type the website into the search bar and hit enter! The results you get can help you make your own decision on whether to buy from that website or not and you can do this before you even visit the site. The website checker looks at over 40 data sources to formulate its fraud score. The tool was originally devised in 2012 and has been the subject of continuous improvement by the ScamAdviser technical team ever since.
