How to protect yourself against tongkat ali scams
By Sam Sanare
Therefore, you can bet they use PayPal to process payments.
Why? Because PayPal allows payments to an anonymous person. The only thing a potential buyer gets to know is an email address of the seller. No true name, no true address.
Demand a bank account. Banks are properly regulated. Bank accounts are always in the name of a proper person. And to receive payments, both the true name and the true address of a recipient are needed.
Try to demand a bank account for your payment! You will find out that more than half of all sites selling what they claim is tongkat ali, will refuse to provide a potential buyer with a bank account. And give you all kinds of excuses.
Thieves. Con artists.  Scammers. Dregs and scum. All of them.
An honorable seller does not hide behind an anonymous PayPal front. He or she provides a genuine name and address of a payment recipient.
And if ever a seller who gave a buyer a bank account and address tries to scam you, just tell them that you will provide transaction details to Sam Sanare, if ever you are not refunded. I will take care that the case is published.
They will refund. No time limit. And this is proper buyer protection. Not the half-hearted kind you get from PayPal.
