How do you know if a site is legit or not?

I posted earlier about some cheap GHDs and it was removed as it was an overseas site and they were 'probably fake'
How do you know??!!

There could be customs charges anyway on top even if it was legit.

Common sense.



Thanks, very helpful

Sorry to say but it is a little about common sense. Have a look at the site, check there contact details, is there a contact number? is there an address? Have a look at the items official site, many of them contain lists of official sites

If you see something for a price thats too good to be true it probaby is!!

Thanks you, This has been really helpful. And as for 'if its too good to be true.......' Erm the after 8s for 1p a bag are defo true!!

enter the site into google to see if there is a review about it, norton toolbar automatically checks websites to see if there any nasty malware or virus lucking in it, if it has https or a padlock symbol do not assume it is still safe as it can still be fraudulant.
