Virtual Feedback Launches Anti-Fraud Site

Virtual Feedback this week launched a Web site designed to help combat Internet fraud and offer a central place for people to learn more about their Internet neighbors before making transactions.

The company said its site offers a new way to tell Internet buyers and sellers more about yourself and your past transactions. Registration is free. The information provided is then available to any Internet user who knows your e-mail address.

Information available on sellers is: your name, store and URL (if any), method of payments accepted, return privilege and any user auction IDs you might use. For buyers, name, e-mail address and auction IDs.

Each seller transaction will be rated on factors such as e-mail correspondence, timeliness of shipping, satisfaction of the item, packing satisfaction etc. Buyers are rated on e-mail correspondence, timeliness of payment and overall rating of the transaction.

Virtual Feedback accepts information on all Internet transactions; auction related, storefront, newsgroup, online sites such as AOL, Prodigy, Compuserve or any place trading occurs on the Internet. A small HTML coding is created for each registered user to place on their Web site or auction description linking them back to their Virtual Feedback profile and feedback information.
