The payment processing website: www.safe-ssl-checkout.com is fraudulent, and we not recommend using it. Do not enter your personal or credit card information on the website. We do not trust the website because the privacy, security, business, trusted seals on the website are fakes.
Please continue reading below.
The "Verified by Visa" and "MasterCard Code" logos are also fakes.
The website did not subscribe to the Norton VeriSign, McAfee Secure, or other Trust/Secure services and is only trying to fool consumers/visitors by placing a stolen copy of the trustmark/seal on their website in order to give the appearance of "Trust" and "Security". This practice is called "Scraping."
The Website www.safe-ssl-checkout.com
Major Security and Trust seals icons commonly used by: BBB.org, McAfee, Thawte, TRUSTe, Trustwave, UpFront, VeriSign/Norton, and others, all have URLs or website addresses that are linked to those icons. So, when you click the icon, the relevant website certificate or verification page should appear with information about the website. But, on the website www.safe-ssl-checkout.com, nothing happens when you click on the icons.
Although the website has a secure connection or SSL, it should still not be trusted. If you have entered your credit card information on the malicious website, please contact your credit card company or bank.
