People can change mail delivery, renew license tabs, sign up for health insur- ance, and order credit reports online. But with this acces- sibility there is a risk: look- a-like websites that charge unnecessary fees, provide inaccurate information, or do not deliver any services at all. It can happen like this: [Box]"Michael" recent- ly moved across town and needed to update the address on his driver's license. He entered "driver's license address change Minnesota" into a search engine and clicked on the first link that appeared. At first glance, the website looked very similar to the State of Minnesota Department of Vehicle Services website, dps.mn.gov/divisions/dvs. The website's banner also had the same graphics and color scheme as the official State website. He filled out an application and paid a $15 fee before realizing he was on the wrong website. As a first-time business owner, "Emily" searched the Internet to learn more about receiving a business tax iden- tification number. She filled out a form on a ".cam" web- site and paid $125 to what she thought was the Minnesota Department of Revenue, but she never received the docu- ments she ordered. When she called the Department of Advertise your items using your local paper. $ 7.9 5 for 20 words {Extra words 25 cents each) i :iAny one Peach $8.95- extra words 25 cents each For even more coverage advertise in the Northwest Iowa Peach Southwest Minnesota Peach, South Dakota Peach Or for your best coverage reach 79,000 households for only $1795 (Extra words $1 each) Sell those small items that are cluttering the garage. Bargain Basement: 10 words or less for only 53 (Extra words 75 cents each) Revenue, Emily learnetathat its website was revenue.sate. mn.us and that a business*ax identification number is fie. "Christina" wanted to e- direct her mail while she w away at college. She orderek an address change from a website that had a similar logo as the United States Post Office, only instead of a blue eagle, the website had a blue bear. Christina missed the nuance and paid $40 for the purported service. Her mail was not forwarded and when Christina called her local Post Office, the representative told her that changing an address online costs $1. Before applying for a car loan, "Ryan" went online to look at his credit report. A month later, he found a charge on his credit card for a credit monitoring ser- vice. The website Ryan used offered a free credit check, but the fme print included a "trial" credit monitoring ser- vice. Ryan didn't know that annualcreditreport.com was the only place to fmd his free report.[End Box] What to Look For When using the Intemet, it is important to ensure you are dealing with the correct entity. Legitimate websites are upfront about their iden- tity and services. Look for clues like the extension (ex: .cam, .org, gov, .biz, .net) of the web address. While there are few hard and fast rules dictating which types of enti- ties can use each extension, it is one potential indication of a website's security. For instance, look for the .gov extension on government websites. * To find reliable links to all Minnesota State agencies, boards, and commissions, visit the portal at rnn.gov/por- tal/government/state/agen- cies-boards-commissions. Similarly, pay close atten- tion to icons-like the pad- lock-that appear in your LRL bar when you are visiting an encrypted, or seewe, website. Depending on the Internet browser you use, the URL bar may be shad- ed a different color when a website is secured. Also, look for "https://" (the "s" is for secure) before the web address, because this indi- cates that the website and Internet connection are secure. In general, "http://" websites are vulnerable to attack. * Never provide personal or fmancial information to 'nsecure or unencrypted web- tes because fraudsters can ",avesdrop" on this informa- tim. Typing a word or phrase int, a search engine will typgally bring up thousands of lits, but search engines after place advertisements and agonsored websites (i.e. websies that pay to be the first rsult of a search) more promimntly than legitimate hits. Advertisements can be tricky to spot because they are typically listed on a lightly shaded background or sidebar, where many people mistake them for legitimate websites. *Know that the website you are looking for may not be the first one listed. Finally, websites often place a seal from organi- zations such as the Better Business Bureau, VeriSign, or McAfee to promote the website's reputation or secu- rity. On legitimate websites, these seals should be links to those organizations, not just photos. *Click on branded logos and "seals of approval" to be sure you know who you are dealing with. Tips *Never click on links in e mails or pop up adver- tisements. Seam artists use familiar logos and similar- sounding web domains to lure Internet users to fraudu- lent websites. * Use a reliable source, like a phone book or the gov- ernment portal listed above, to double check the contact information for state agen- cies. * Report look-a-like web- sites to the agency or organi- zation being imitated.
