Some members have reported fraudulent attempts to gain access to their sensitive information through bogus emails. Such emails, which appear to be coming from GOGOstone.com, request sensitive personal information. GOGOstone.com will never ask you to provide your password, credit card information, or other sensitive information in an email.
The key to reducing the adverse effects of this type of email is awareness, education and vigilance. We encourage you to be cautious when responding to any email request for sensitive personal information.
Below are some basic measures you can take to ensure the safety of your account on GOGOstone.com. If you suspect that an unauthorized party has already accessed or has attempted to access your account, please contact GOGOstone Service Team immediately.
Choose a unique Member ID and set a good password
Please do not choose a simple Member ID or password like your birthday or name. It is better for you to set one with numbers and characters together.
Log on regularly at GOGOstone.com
Regularly signing into GOGOstone.com ensures your account information stays current.
Be cautious when you receive requests for sensitive information
Do not use the links in an email to access an GOGOstone.com web page if you suspect the message might not be authentic. Avoid filling out forms in email messages that ask for your personal information, such as Member ID and password, credit card information and so forth. Be sure you are using a secure website when submitting credit card or other sensitive information through your browser. Most GOGOstone.com sign-in pages can be identified by addresses that begin with "http://www.gogostone.com".
Use anti-virus software and a firewall
Some computer viruses steal your password and financial account information by recording your keystrokes. For this reason, it is recommended that you install anti-virus software and update it on a regular basis. A firewall is a system designed to prevent unauthorized parties (usually referred to as "hackers") from gaining access to sensitive information stored on your computer. Firewalls can be implemented in either hardware and software, or a combination of both. 

Scam Emails

Scam Emails

The following are three common internet scams: 
1. Bank Transfer (Scam Mail)
Usually, such scam mail originates in Africa. Now comes from other countries as well. Often, victims of this scam receive an introduction letter via email. In such a letter, they are usually told a story about a wealthy person (for example a rich businessman or government official) who has died. The letter then asks the receiver to provide a bank account where the deceased's money can be "safely" deposited with a promise to pay 20% to 30% of the deposit as compensation.

2.Standard-Looking Invoice (aiming to get your personal information)
Some criminals may ask for a standard-looking invoice, which often includes a bank account number, when they make contact with you. After you provide this, they may attempt to withdraw your funds or purchase samples at the expense of your good name and the reputation of your business. Do not provide sensitive information, such as a bank account number or corporate registration, without taking prudent steps to determine the credibility of the party or parties with whom you are dealing. 
3.Credit Card
Be very careful if a prospective business partner you meet through the Internet informs you that they can only send you payment by check or credit card. If you accept such payment methods there is a risk that the checks have been forged or that the credit card numbers have been stolen. Wire transfers and letters of credit issued from a bank or licensed financial institutions are free of such risks in securing payment.
