      I am also trying to do searches on Google to see if I can pull up any information. Are there any particular words or search terms I should be using?

      You should search the company name separately with the words “scam”, “real” and “legitimate.” You get the idea: you want to pull up any information that may lead you to believe this company will not treat you well.

      You can also type in the company name with the letter V. For example, “v company name.” Make sure to include the quotation marks. Because legal cases are recorded as one party v another party, this search will bring up lawsuits having to do with your company.

      Two other websites you can use are Whois and Edgar. Whois gives you information about a company’s website: who set it up, when it was set up, and where it was set up from.

      Edgar contains millions of company reports. If you can’t find a report about your company in Singapore, you might be able to find if it was mentioned in any other company reports.

      Another thing you might want to consider doing is only paying through PayPal, or a secure method.

      Yes, you want to be careful about paying with a company you are using for the first time. For example, I would not use TT for your first transaction.

      Instead, use a Letter of Credit so that both you and the supplier will be verified by a financial institution. A third party will check your merchandise, and if it is satisfactory, your payment will be made to the company.
