Net-Scams Scam Scores

New Scam Scores!

To quickly summarize the legitimacy of scam, we will now be supplying a Net-Scams Scam Score. This score builds on top of the existing rules we previously established and sums a score from those rules.

50 pts ~ Responsible Party
In all legit offers and giveaways, there will always a person or company held responsible for fulfillment of the prize. This company may or may not also handle inquires of possible participants. This responsible party must uphold their end of the agreement.

20 pts ~ Regulations and Tax Requirements
Do not account for US tax requirements and regulations

10 pts ~ Professional Conduct
Poor grammar used through out the site

10 pts ~ Server Location
Servers located outside the United States are not able to be governed by US law. This applies a sense of distrust.

10 pts ~ Other
This includes usage of Non-English languages in an English
Russian language used on the site

By adding points of each qualifying rule, we can derive a risk score of each potential scam:

 0 - 20 pts - Low risk
20 - 40 pts - Medium risk
40 - 60 pts - High risk
60 - 80 pts - Extreme risk
80 - 100 pts - Severe risk, extreme caution advised!
