Fake Twitter website -tpwitter.com

The website TPWITTER.com was designed to steal your Twitter user name and password, by impersonating TWITTER.COM. This website is located in China and was registered less than two months ago.

Do not enter your Twitter username and password on this website because it will be sent to the scammers who created this website.

Please continue reading below.

This is how tpwitter.com looks

Fake twitter website tpwitter.com

The website looks exactly like twitter.com, because the scammers aim is to trick persons into believing that they are on twitter.com.

You may receive short messages like the following, with links to this malicious website:

"Did you see this tweet of you? (Link to the website)"
“Funny picture of you"

This domain name, tpwitter.com was registered less than two months and is only registered for the minimum period of one year.

Domain Name.......... TPWITTER.com
Creation Date........ 2013-03-21 09:39:01
Registration Date.... 2013-03-21 09:39:01
Expiry Date.......... 2014-03-21 09:39:01

Legitimate websites do not register their domain names for a minimum of year, scammers usually do this. They do it because they know that they will be discovered soon, so it doesn't make sense registering the domain name for than a year.

If you look at the registration information for the legitimate website twitter.com, you will notice that their domain name is registered for more than 5 years.

Domain Name.......... twitter.com
Creation Date........ 2000-01-22
Registration Date.... 2011-08-31
Expiry Date.......... 2019-01-22

I got this information, which is called "Whois", at this website http://whois.net/.

Before you enter your Twitter username and password, please look at your browser's address bar and ensure that it says:

browser address bar twitter.com

and NOT TPWITTER.COM.
