It is difficult to detect whether a website is fraud or not. This is determined by accessibility, layout and presentation of the website. To be able to detect whether what you are looking is fraud or trustworthy takes time. A trained eye will know the difference, as it is simple to see. You want to make sure that a website is secure before citing it, straining information from it, or invest any money into it.
