be aware that scams do exist; such internet sites are third party sites where the information is fed by various sources, so data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds to good to be true, it is. For scam related information see links. Also consider reoprting any scams to the local authorities.
