Online Skimming. Protect Your Billing Info

Maybe it's not kinda breaking news, but Internet fraud became very widespread, and each time you make a purchase online, you are facing a danger of being cheated. So, this article dedicates to all online shopping addicts. The latest research of Willem de Groot spawned a list of web stores that contain malware. That means, that information on buyers' payment system was not protected as it should be but collected. Frauds got all the necessary data to continue shopping from strangers' bank cards.
Data Stealing Stores
So, thanks to Willem de Groot, we received an info of almost 6 thousands of unfair web stores. 3011 sites from the list contain ".com" domain. Some of them are already deleted from the list as they "have fixed their stores", some even do not rank in the Google search results. But there are still big and popular websites, which contain a code for ordinary buyers stealing from. For you to not accidentally miss something important, we applied Serpstat to determine 200 largest fraudulent sites.
How We Determined The Biggest Frauds
Serpstat is an all-in-one platform for data analyzing. And that is what we did. We took domains from the list and used just 1 basic filter: keywords. That is enough to find out whether the website is relevant in general.
As we see, many websites do not contain any keywords at all. Which means they don't rank in the search results, as they do not match any search query. There are also domains with so little number of keywords that it would be a surprise if someone really did any purchases there.
But among these websites, there are still ones who probably caused harm to many customers. We set up list display in descending order, to see immediately the biggest offenders.
As it is possible to check just 200 websites per one time, we repeated this action for a lot of times.
But now, watch out! The list below may contain one of your favorite shops. In this case, we strongly recommend to contact a bank and replace the current bank card.
