Is Scamadviser Legit?

Now you might think it would be a little strange that we have put forward this question, right?

Well we’ve noticed some posts (and slightly suspicious articles) stating that Scamadviser itself is a scam.

We believe in being cautious when going online so we don’t mind answering that up front, we are not a scam!

But I guessing you’re thinking:‘Well of course you’d say you weren’t a scam!’

So we decided not to try and convince ourselves, but let satisfied users and third-party websites do the work for us!


Example 1: We Get Scammed For You – ‘Is ScamAdviser A Scam? Or Is It A Site That Will Advise You Wisely?’

Here are some key points from the article:

As you can see from the screenshot above, SA seems to be very active on twitter, with over 3000 tweets, and 10K followers. You’ll also notice that the last tweet sent out is just a few days ago.

This helps show that SA is still active, and gives them more legitimacy in our minds.

Overall, SA is a great place to go to check out a website, and see if it is a scam or not. They can give you some initial leads as to whether you’ll want to do business with the certain site you’re checking out.
