International Business/legit business??


How can I know if an Indonesian internet company is legit before I do a bank transfer of funds?

Do your "due diligence" and research them.  Find out about their operations, their suppliers, their customers, their employees, and so forth.  Don't be afraid to call or email any of them and ask around.  Check out their financial statements.  Check online to see if there are complaints with consumer organizations such as the FTC, or websites like  If you're talking about a large quantity of money, then you might even want to get in touch with a consulting company in the area.  There are consultants for business professionals all around the world to help with foreign transactions and investments, and since they're located in the nation in question, they'll be able to find out in-person.
