Since two days ago, some of our visitors have begun to notify us about a certain individual who is using our website name to con people out of their social properties. Rest assured that this isn’t us, and the individual is using a .mobi domain with a simple iFrame to hide behind our good name. The domain he/she is using is http://ViralAccounts.mobi, and a simple view source will show that the page simply embeds our website onto his/hers domain.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> <html> <head> <title>Viral Accounts </title> </head> <frameset rows="100%,*" border="0"> <frame src="http://viralaccounts.com/contact-us/" frameborder="0" /> <frame frameborder="0" noresize /> </frameset> <!-- pageok --> <!-- 02 --> <!-- --> </html>
This simple yet hard to detect tactic may have fooled innocent property owners, so we please ask you to check the URL every time you believe something is wrong. ViralAccounts.com only uses four domains, and they are:
That is it! If you are using any other URL that is not us, and if you are communicating with an email that ends with .mobi, that isn’t us either. The last know email of the possible scammer is: [email protected] so please avoid it at all costs, and please report all emails from that individual to our staff.
Thanks again to everyone who has reported this, we have contacted the domain registrar and filed a DMCA complaint, and currently we are trying to locate the host. Hopefully we will be able to grab this individual real information so we can take further action. Stay safe out there!
