How to detect scams

Last week scammers earnings:
0.470832 BTC | 32513 USD

Scams are omnipresent on the dark web, after yourselves being scammed multiple times we decided to act and created OnionList.
After observing hundreds of sites we made a guideline to recognize fraudulent ones if you respect those you should be safe while buying on the deep web.

  1. Avoid poorly coded sites: How someone who isn't capable of producing a clean, working site could operate online criminal activities ?
  2. If the BTC address you need to pay on has already been used, then it's a scam: The seller can't recognize that it's you and not someone else.
  3. Too good to be true: Noone is here to give away things, if you need to pay 25$ for something worth 300$ then its a scam
    Also noone will sell you already laundred money, what would be the point of doing that ?
  4. No one has 100% good feedback, even Amazon. It's the same here: If they claim to have 100% happy customers then it's a bait.
  5. Revolutinary methods to make money like bitcoin generators, monero botnets or gambling games with incredible ROI are scams, again too good to be true
  6. Too simplistic websites with just an email address for example are also likely scams.
  7. Pay attention to sellers who use escrow websites: If it's not a popular one then it's a scam, verify this on our site before going further.
  8. Never use online bitcoin wallets: They will run away with your coins.
  9. Avoid sites requiring javascript: They can possibly discover your real IP if you enable it.

We recommend you to check here what people say about the site you are about to buy on and participate growing our database.
