    Computer Products Ltd Needs Your Help Guys!

    Hi Guys

    We recieved an email this morning from a gentleman showing us a link to a website masquerading as our company including things like our company registration number,

    We need your help to track the owners off this website down so we can get it shut down,

    We also need to show this post to help stop any unknowing customers from getting scammed by this website so under no circumstances use the following website to purchase anything,

    COMPUTER PRODUCTS LIMITED - Home

    thankyou in advance to all you edugeek Sleuths,

    I would email this company: Free Website - Hosting your Homepage for free

    http://www.own-free-website.com/impressum.php#support

    Inform them that a website been hosted by one of their customers is wrong etc and see what they can do for you.

    Might also be worth contacting the company, find out some further information about them.. payment options etc see if that gives you any more information you can use to track them down.

    James.

    Interesting, the IP address involved appears to be run by very industrious scum bags and hosted on a german ISP
    82.98.86.161
    Over 100 domains point to it.

    No further help, but I would hope that anyone visiting the site would be able to guess that it's iffy: the poor design, use of Comic Sans on a business site, dodgy payment methods, dubious and capitalization and spacing, "translated from another language" grammar and awful spelling should be give-aways.

    Also search on the email brings up lots of forums where they have spammed.

    Wow, thought the site looked 'dodgy' without that! Excellent - "well take your money and not even bother to send you anything in return".

    I wonder how meny people actually fall for these scam sites? E-mail a "sales" rep on an hotmail address and then send money via Weston Union. Tbh - if you're stupid enough to do it then you deserve to lose your money!

    To be fair (?) if it's a free webhosting site I'd expect over 100 domains to point at the IP.

    You could be cheeky and contact Boston.com and politely ask them if they can change the contents of Picture of "JONHSON HARRY" (from the "Company Payment Information" page) to be a more appropriate photograph/image
