Hi Mdarifsadik,

To avoid internet Frauds, ensure that you guard your information on the internet against unauthorized transmission and access. Do not seamlessly give out your email address, your passwords, your names, your credit card information and other information that a intruder may use to get to you. To not subscribe or register to sites that you do not have a clue what they do (because you may be giving your information to people who have the intention of doing harm to you).

Ensure that you protect confidential information like bank account information from being carelessly transmitted online. Update your passwords frequently to protect your accounts from intruders and fraudsters.

Hope this helps.
