Three easy tips to protect yourself against Internet Fraud.

National Sportswear ® has experienced its undeserving share of frivolous attacks over the years
by fraudulent companies and impersonators.
So, some of our good friends have allowed us to share their content on our site to help
get the word out to our visitors and all internet surfers about INTERNET FRAUD.

What Is “Internet Fraud”

Internet Fraud is a crime in which the perpetrator develops a scheme using one or more elements of the Internet to deprive a person of property or any interest, estate, or right by a false representation of a matter of fact, whether by providing misleading information or by concealment of information.

As increasing numbers of businesses and consumers rely on the Internet and other forms of electronic communication to conduct transactions; illegal activity using the very same media is similarly on the rise. Fraudulent schemes conducted via the Internet are generally difficult to trace and prosecute, and they cost individuals and businesses millions of dollars each year.

How to protect yourself from Internet Fraud!

  • Check with or other reputable Domain Registrars to find out who owns the website.
    Their company “REAL NAME“, “REAL ADDRESS” and “REAL TELEPHONE NUMBER” should be clearly displayed.
    The information provided by the Domain Registrar will also show you ” the date it was FIRST registered.”
    This date represents the “FIRST” used in internet commerce date. In other words, first time it was used widely,
    globally or interstate used.
  • Check with your State Business Registry and confirm that the Business is legitimate.
    Your state Business Registry will have in its database the names of “EVERY registered and certified corporation.
    The name should match.
  • Ask to see their Federal Tax I.D.
    Any legitimate company should not deny you your right to view their Federal I.D.
    (if they do, they are obviously hiding something)

These are the three easy steps to protect yourself.

We all know how cheap and deceptive words can be.
So remember, “anyone can tell you anything.”
