The Fraudulent Website: www.rockyfroggy.com
The fake and fraudulent website is also known for tricking its users into downloading spyware, web browser hijacker and adware software. These types of software capture the users’ browser information, without their knowledge, and use it to display annoying pop-up advertisements to them, change their web searches, and hijack their web browser settings. This includes hijacking their web browser home-page and default search engine.
All of this is done illegally to generate traffic for the website, which will make it popular and make a lot of money from advertisements.
The website: “www.rockyfroggy.com,” is also known for creating ridiculous sale offers, which the scammers behind it, use to lure their victims to the phishing website.
The website currently has a fake BBC News website that looks just like the real thing located at: “http://bbc.co.uk-tech-news.com/”, which claims that British citizens found a loophole to get the new iPhone 6 for only £1. All this is a scam and clicking on the links in the fake BBC news article will take potential victims to back to the fraudulent website: “www.rockyfroggy.com.”
