4. Unusual payment methods

If the website requests payment using an electronic transfer, cryptocurrency, or prepaid card/gift card, it is highly likely that it’s a scam. For example, many scam online shops only accept PayPal as a payment method:

You should be extra cautious if a shopping site only offers cash on delivery (COD) payment. Scammers can send you fake products. Even if you did not order anything, scammers might send you ghost packages under COD. If you pay and get the parcel, it is hard to reach out to the bogus sellers to claim a refund.
