Create a custom link or document using Trackemdown and share it with a suspected fraudster.
If there’s anything to worry about Trackemdown will let you know!
Before closing a deal, find out if the other person is actually located where they claim to be.
Analyze the number of clicks to make sure you are talking to one person rather than a team of hackers.
Share your report and help quickly identify serial scammers. Stay safe online and make the Internet a better place for everyone.
On the dashboard, use the menu option “New tracking” to create a custom tracking link.
Choose a link, image or document you want to use as bait.
Upload the file or paste the link into the corresponding text box and Trackemdown will generate a unique tracking link — send it to the suspected scammer.
As soon as they click on it Trackemdown will begin its analysis.
A scammer’s location can be spoofed with a VPN, but there are other criteria we can use to identify a fraudster.
Using this unique “digital fingerprint” we can single out every user who has clicked on a tracking link.
Now it’s time to dig deeper:
Has the person who is clicking on your link already been flagged in our database? Are there clicks from multiple people instead of just one? Has another member of our community reported these clicks?
This is where the power of a community comes into play.
Suppose a Trackemdown user, Joe, was contacted by someone suspicious on Craigslist ( for example ) — or a dating site, or another online platform. Just to be safe, Joe sent a tracking link ( created on trackemdown.com ) to the suspected fraudster. In further interactions it became clear that Joe was dealing with a scammer, so he reported the fraudster’s digital fingerprint on Trackemdown.
You don’t know Joe, but right now you happen to be dealing with something fishy on the same platform too, so you create your own tracking link. The same scammer clicks on your link, but Joe has already reported him.
The system recognizes the fraudster’s digital fingerprint: now you know that the person you are dealing with has been flagged as suspicious by another member of the community.
Thanks, Joe, for saving you the trouble! Next time you might be the cautious one and save someone else from a similar trap.
This is how Trackemdown rallies collective effort to make the Internet a safer place!
