3. Google Search: This is one of the reason i posted this, i was about to make a transaction for a company which promised to pay by Paypal. They contacted many other site owners but after one day or two, i was contacted with recommendations that they thoroughly search my name on Google and what they saw was good. I might have lost such opportunity if i had used some fake name to sell online.
