If you plan on participating in an online bidding, be sure to familiarise yourself primarily with the words and terminology being used, like shill bidding, sniping, warranties, refurbished, refund and return policies, and so on, to ensure you know what they are trying to say whenever they utter these words. Legitimate companies will never require sensitive information and facts by way of e-mail. If you receive an e-mail requesting for such, don’t reply to it. Instead, if you're familiar with the site, go to it directly. Should you receive an electronic mail saying that somebody from a different nation has selected your very email address out of the blue into being the recipient of his money.  This kind of electronic mail messages is a con as why would someone randomly give their money to anyone they do not even know.
