    How to know if online sites are reliable?

    Hi guys, this is my first post here.
    how do people determine whether online sites are reliable?
    i found a watch that i like and i would like to purchase it online, but im afraid of its dubious sources.
    btw the site is Buy Watches | Men Watches | Lady Watches | Guess Watches | Fossil Watches | Skagen Watches | Kenneth Cole Watches | Seiko Watches

    would appreciate some help!

    That website looks like a car wreck to me. In the "about us" section there are multiple grammatical errors, which is usually a pointer.

    I would stay away personally...

    The domain watch-host.com was registered on June 01, 2013. They are hosted on 66.90.101.229, which is in Chicago. Other sites hosted on this IP Address are:

    dxebay.com
    luxuswatchclub.com
    flygameshop.com
    allwatch24.com
    luxuswatchonline.com
    ofoem.com
    watchtm.com
    worldwidedropship.com
    watchtimeclub.net
    radiosetshop.com

    Site registered in the past month, no contact information provided, no company background, plenty of typo's.

    The pictures on ofoem.com all have the Jomashop logo across their Rolex selection. The Omega's on watchtimeclub.net start at $5. They claim to sell every model of every brand from ALS to Patek to FP Journe.

    These sites are all screaming scam.

    Kindest Regards,

    Read reviews online. And just when you're getting ready to hit the "pay now" option, read a couple more reviews of the site.
    Same goes for the watch you or anyone else is planning on buying.

    But the sites mentioned above Is a good start.
