Lookna - Avoid getting scammed, search for legit businesses in one place

Lookna - Avoid getting scammed, search for legit businesses in one place

Scam ads are a chronic problem in adland, a sort of dark underbelly of the industry where agencies and individuals trying to win awards submit work that's never been approved by a client or run more than a couple times. In today’s world advertising on the Internet is a huge business that can yield positive returns for both people who sell advertisement and for people who look to buy advertising space. Unfortunately, there are also people who found ways to manipulate the system and take advantage of the internet advertising business through scams and false terms of conditions. Below you will find steps you can take to avoid these internet advertising scams and hopefully come out on top.

Always read the "terms and conditions" before you accept or sign up for anything.

Lookna is complete with these details. If there are no "terms and conditions" listed or to be found then ask for them. Doing this will help you greatly in the long run because many internet advertising scams you can sign up for will start to charge you after a period of time even though they advertise as "absolutely free". Usually, it is free for the first few weeks or month, but after that, they automatically bill you for their services.

Stay away from advertisements that offer products or services as "get rich fast" or "secret to success" or "earn $100,000 a month doing nothing".

It is not easy to know which ad truly caters the services we are looking for, that is why there are so many times that we fall into the scammer’s pits, ripping us off. Lookna aims at, if not completely eliminating, reducing scammers’ ads.
These get rich quick scams never work out and at the end, people who sign up for them usually have less money than what they started out with. If it is so easy to become wealthy, then everyone would already be doing it and there would be no need to advertise about it.

Do a little research before committing to what the advertisement offers. Lookna provides fair and equal advertising opportunity by providing leverage to small scale business to compete with giant advertisers. We aim to eliminate advertising scams that rip-off people using untruthful and misleading ads.

Even if you do not think it is a scam, you should always double check by doing a simple Google search for the product or service that is being offered. If it is a scam then, unfortunately, other people have already fallen for it and most of them will post about it, in detail, on the Internet.

Be careful if an advertisement comes with success quotes and post from other people "just like you".

Lookna was built with the goal of eliminating scams and fraud in the market. For us to achieve our goals, all Lookna accounts will undergo a verification process. This includes you sending us proof of identification and proof of address that is valid from your country of origin.

Usually, these people work for the company providing the product or service or have some financial gain if you sign up for it. If you find the advertisement in a forum or on a blog and people are commenting on the quality and performance of the product or service, be careful, it may be a disguised sales pitch.
