Protect yourself when doing business online

by Philip F. Jacobus, CEO | October 08, 2014
Honestly, I am surprised at how many people call me to tell me about losing money when dealing online.

Just the other day, I received an email from an experienced trader I have known for at least 20 years. He met someone through LinkedIn, did a deal with them, wired just under $50,000 and never heard from them again.

I was really shocked.

Anyone whether they are an advertiser or not, can come to DOTmed and look at people's ratings and search for them in our Honest/Dishonest Dealings Forum.

You can drill down and see whether the person that you are going to do business with has been favorably rated and if so, by whom. If they have been unfavorably rated, it might cause you to pause.

If there are a number of unfavorable comments about them on our Honest/Dishonest Dealings Forum or, for that matter, favorable comments, you are able to enter into a deal with your eyes open.

I am proud to say that DOTmed is a community of industry professionals. We understand our industry. Even though we may not all speak the same language, we all understand the challenges that we face and we are all in the business for the long haul.

Please check our ratings and our Forums before you do a deal with someone you do not know.

Please rate the people that you do business with and ask the people that do business with you to rate you. If you are a dealer/distributor, your end user customers can rate you anonymously so that you do not surrender your customer list nor make your customers sales targets for competitors.

These features are free for everyone to use and it is DOTmed's commitment to help to protect both Buyers and Sellers. Please take advantage of these features before entering into a deal.
