What are forums members thoughts on Scam & Safe Web Surfing Checking Sites.

 

Came across this Scam checking site: https://www.scamadviser.com/

 

I've never really been worried about being Scammed, Phished etc as I tend to safe browse and download, but was checking to see where I could buy a small circulation art house movie and came across MovieLand which is a free watch on your computer or iDevice movie site. You can not download to save though. Anyway was wondering how safe it was so I google "How safe is MovieLand" and came across ScamAdviser.com and it stated that MovieLand had a High Safe rating.

 

Can these types of checking sites be trusted ⁉️





iMac 27" [14.2] (late 2013), Airport Time Capsule 5th gen, iPhone13 x 2, iPad6, iPad Mini5, Spark Smart Modem 1st Gen

 

Panasonic TV Viera TH-L50E6Z (1080p), Panasonic Blu-ray PVR DMR-BWT835, Yamaha AVR RX-V1085 [6.1 Surround Speaker System], Apple TV 4k 64Gb (2nd gen)

 

Kia Sportage EX (2019), Mazda Demio (2001)

The difficult we can do immediately. The impossible takes a bit longer. But Miracles you will have to wait for.

My Website scores 100%, so I say yes.

 

The quality of the report will only be as good as the accuracy of what is submitted to the site (often inaccurate due to user 'error') and the arbitrary metrics they decide are applicable. E.g. some will mark sites down based on the hosting country, others based on the subnet your site is hosted on. Neither of these things tell you one thing about the quality of the service you will receive. You're better to look for actual reviews.

 

It's like spam filtering. A lot of guess work. Your browser will warn you about untrusted or expired certificates, so those tests add little value.
