Yes there are a number of poor quality lists in the marketplace.
Firstly, before buying ANY product online especially mailing lists or other digital products we advise you to carry out due diligence via the web prior to purchase. Visit respected sites such as the Better Business Bureau or the Rip Off Report and search for company and product name/type to see if there have been complaints. Do the same via major search engines such as Google – search for company or product name followed by words such as complaint, scam, rip off etc. You will not have to search for long to discover the vendors to avoid.
Please note that most of the bad guys have been kicked off Paypal which is more or less the industry standard for merchants selling digital products. Buying via Paypal offers a great deal of buyer security and they review the accounts of merchants that generate a certain number of complaints. So you might notice that the bad guys often only offer very limited payment options which you should consider to be red flag. However, should you find other List vendors offering a Paypal payment option then check to see if the Paypal merchant name is in the name of an individual or a corporation or company and of course check the vendors Business Terms to see if they offer a meaning guarantee (Please note that we have been a Paypal merchant since 2008 and that we are a company)
