Internet fraud has been around for just about as long as the Internet itself. Each year, cybercriminals come up with new techniques and tactics designed to fool their potential victims. At Bit Trade we take your online protection and safety seriously. As such, the best protection that can be ever be under-taken is self-education, on-line safety awareness and prevention.

That is why no program can ever provide users with 100% protection; we our-selves have to take a proactive stance in ensuring our own online security and best interests are met.

While the vast majority of on-line financial transactions are successful and hassle-free, we always recommend internet users to follow these simple steps to ensure they get the best out of their online experiences:
