      There are several ways to avoid online scam (dishonest or fraudulent dealings);
      a. Check if the site is secured- In this case the HTTP (hyper text transfer protocol) is secured, it should be https. If not there may be a problem and thus there is a need for caution
      b. Online review- This is very important because one would be able to gather the opinion of different people from different geographical locations without sentiment.
      c. Try to study the sites and all the pieces of information provided such as physical address, email ,phone and if there is a chat icon that are real
      d. High return on investment could be suspicious
      If any of these aforementioned is not in place then it could be a scam

      Honestly there are several ways scam can be performed on the internet and for those of us that often do online work we Need to always be very vigilant.
      Though it's likely that we cannot avoid getting on touch with them but before making a decision we need to triple our confirmation.

      You know greed is one of the factors that lead some victim into the hands of the scammers, they want to make huge amounts of money in a short period of time.

      But a tip to know a scam is getting rid or not paying interest to any emails that has to do with doubling of capital, whether on forex or any investment.
      And avoid also the website that is not secure or that lack good security. Most especially when making payments online.

      regarding online business there is not any trusted way to make money online except for forex , forex is a real trading market that has its rules and its terms , to be sure that you are trading save you should choose a trusted broker and to never put your money in a broker without having the required information about it and also you have to review the client opinion regarding a broker , this is what you should do in forex and regarding the other investment programs that may offer you doubling your money after a particular period and etc from the offers that we see in most of online programs you should be away from this and consider only your career as a forex trader and never think you will be successful in forex withing a day , a week or even a year as it is a long learning process

      Whenever we want to make some income from the online investment ,its needed that we should be logical and realistic because i saw many investment sites promising some 100% in 5 days and people are just running behind that when they saw some 10-15 payments and after some week or a month that shuts down .

      I feel its a foolish deed by the investors because in the Forex field there are many brokers who are very legit like our instaforex and they have the Forexcopy system where we can invest and just have peaceful sleep at night .So here extensive reasearch is always needed to be with the legit investment sites .Here we should get the proper control over the greed and should checkout properly that the site is regulated by legit regulators or not .We should also check that how their customer support is working because queries always arise and we should solve those to be with the confidence that our amount is safe indeed.

      There are too many illegal online investment. They always do the same techniques like hit and run then repeat the same techniques. Most of High Yield Investment Programs (HYIPs) are scam so never trust them. I don't recommend you to invest your money in HYIPs but if you insist then I will give you some solutions :

      1) Find a regulated online investment program
      - Regulated means the program is licensed by authorities. You will feel more safe to invest your money in that program.

      2) Choose an online investment that gives you reliable return
      - Don't get cheated with high profit returns as many of them are scam. So choose a reliable return. <5% return per month can be reliable return and recommended.

      3) Always get a secure website
      - Usually the best online investment website will secure the content with https. You can see that in your browser address.

      4) Invest any amount that you are willing to lose
      - Remember not to invest all of your savings. Just invest any amount that you feel safe to lose it. If you lose the money, you won't get mad or upset.

      How can you avoid online investment scam?
      This makes me to remember MMM and other investment scheme we have online then, but here are few details on how to avoid them.

      1. Pay Attention: there a whole lot of website online nowadays that are scam, so we really have to be very careful when investing To screen out the scammers, pay attention to quality when you're surfing the web, most especially when it comes to investment.

      2. Apply Common Sense: the scammers are very wise and they will offer investors something ridiculous, something too good to be true, and in such case we need to apply common sense.

      3. Conduct Fundamental Research: we need to do several level of research when we think and observe that the investment company maybe genuine , and make sure we found positive feedback before investing.

      Sometimes I wonder why people fall for obvious scam, it is baffling to me because the way these scams are presented makes it very obvious that they are here to swindle you, from your hard earned money, butt under the clear sky and with their right sense people will still fall for these because they are looking for something which does not exist, it is same attitude that is being constantly displayed in the forex business.

      How To Prevent Online Investment Scams
      1. Don't believe everything that you hear or see on the internet, most of them including the ones that looks real to the eye are scam.
      2. A Simple Google search is all it takes to know whether something is genuine or not to, however, many people are not interested in knowing for themselves.
      3. Ask questions from people online before you dish out your money into any investment to prevent being duped.
      4. Be a vigilant person, always watch for the website and do a background check before you do an investment.
      5. Investigate properly, some of these scams have happened to other people before, knowing this can help you to safeguard your money.

      How to avoid online investment scam is to avoid getting burned and take precautions.
      Using the Internet
      Not everything that i read online is false or misleading. There are plenty of sites that track stocks, providing price quotes, corporate news, historical performance data and more. These sites are easy to use and free.
      2. Conduct Fundamental Research
      Sure if the company that you found online has passed all of the other screens, it's time to get serious and do some hands on research.
      3. PAY ATTENTION
      To pay attention to quality when you're surfing the web, the especially when money and investments are involved. The legitimate sites aren't always perfect, they might have been closed. Scams sites are so detailed that they mirror legitimate sites, paying attention to quality will help you avoid the worst sites.
      Apply Common Sense
      Scam developer understand greed and cater to it by promising to deliver something for nothing. Internet message boards, spam emails and online investment newsletters are three of the most common tools of the criminal trade. The best way to protect ourselves from this type of activity is to apply Common Sense.

      for sure the internet is a quick, easy and cheap way for fraudulent people to find potential victims for the investment scams. the following would be helpful in keeping guard.
      1. do not expect to get rich quick as this is the bait most scammers use, offering very huge returns on investments within a very short period of time.
      2. do not fall for claims that say this information is only for a certain set of people.
      3. do not give out your personal information online(your home address, phone number, full names, bank account information, etc.)
      4. do not reply to emails from people you do not know.
      5. do not download attachments in unsolicited emails.
      6. research well on the person offering you the investment before finally making a decision.

      There is lot of option for investing in inline sector. But all are not good and all are not genuine. I say before invest in online sector we should be assure about our safety of investment.there are lot of scammer in online sactor. When we invest our money in a online sector we need to find out all information about this field if we get good result then we can invest here. Beside this we also can search their portfolio and past work experience and also others investor opinion to verify those sector. We also can visit their site and get some legal document which provide it is genuine. At last to avoid scam we need to be serious and we need to be smart. It helps us to save our invest and we can get a good investment sector.
