Scam sites

Happened to stumble across this place. One to beware (I've slightly mangled the addresses) :


When you go to download their wonderful Facebook chat app (I run Linux so I'm not particularly bothered by scam sites, viruses etc) you get taken to another page which is a fake 'scanner'.

The home page seems to be here :


Seems they have a number of dodgy bits of software on the site, all of them attractive bits of kit for windows users

I loved the 4mplayer link with the plugin installation and the fantastic Terms. Where are they then ???

"By Clicking the Download button, you agree to Terms of Use and Privacy Policy and consent to receive."


If you use Firefox and find one of these sites then Use Help, Report Web Forgery to submit it to Google. Chrome also has a 'report forgery' link on the tool bar.

I'm not sure how much good it will do, but at least you can have a dig of a dig back against these bastards.....
