Our mission is to help our readers find out what's real and what's not.
We are building the world's biggest database of guides and reviews to verify and identify:
It's an easy rule to follow: verify everything.
We give you simple explanations on how each scam is designed to trick you so you can avoid and beat them.
Verified.org is a global team of researchers, editors, writers, and contributors.
Before starting Verified.org, our team spent 10 years building websites that helped people compare and save on cell phone and internet services, with over 50 million users every year across 5 countries.
We understand the landscape of fraud and deception and are committed to helping people stay safe by checking first. Unfortunately, the remedies after being scammed are limited, and prevention is the only cure when it comes to fraud. Before our team launched Verified.org, our previous company was a victim of an imposter scam—scammers impersonated our business brand name on phone calls and stole from consumers who trusted our brand name and fell for the scam.
It was horrible to witness the stress that people suffered at the hands of the scammers and the limited interest from the authorities.
We decided there had to be a better way.
We want to help everyone avoid the pain of being scammed. Most people ignore that criminals are constantly trying to scam or hack you every day. These fraudsters are continually evolving to try new things and use technology to scale their attacks. Everyone is on their target list, and when they get through your net, it will be too late.
We want to build the safest database in the world.
We want you to learn the best ways to protect your identity, family, and bank balance.
We want you to verify everything first to ensure that you are dealing with the right people on the internet—to do that, we sort through what is real and what is not.
Before globalization and before the internet, you only really needed to worry about local criminals in your area. Today, you are targeted by a world full of criminals and bad actors who use technology as their weapon against you. The truth is scammers and fraudsters are working harder and harder to trick you, and there's far more of them.
We all need to work harder to avoid them.
