DON'T BECOME A VICTIM OF ONLINE AUCTION FRAUD



DON'T BECOME A VICTIM OF ONLINE AUCTION FRAUD

Many consumers buy software online. However, not all consumers are getting what they pay for. According to a survey conducted by Forrester Research, one in five U.S. consumers who purchased software online over the past twelve months has experienced a problem.

The Internet is full of "online pirates" selling counterfeit software to unsuspecting consumers. Many consumers are unaware of the dangers of shopping at unknown websites or auction.

The Business Software Alliance is offering tips and an educational video on their website to help individuals avoid purchasing fraudulent software online. The video features interviews with a fraud victim and the former owner of a software piracy website sentenced to six years in prison. Consumers can also use the website to report personal incidents of Internet auction fraud. For more information, visit BSAcybersafety.com.
