Reading my newsletters I found an interesting news.


Nigerian Connection copied Interpol website

The name of the copied website is:
interpolglobal.com

The server is located in China.


There is also a warning at the original website from Interpol about this.

Did you never heard about these guys ? They just want your money.

So they will use it for originating spam / phishing emails?

Yes, that ´s the way this works. But isn´t it tricky to copie the Interpol website ?

I believe they will optimize their faked site to get the best ranking in search engines.

I would think something could be done about that.

You are right. But the greatest. problem is the server in China i believe. If my info is correct the website is registered since 2005 ! Also if the Interpol contact google they can still send pishing e-mails.
