Beware of ".XYZ" Fraudulent and Cloned Websites or Domain Names

2018-05-18T18:43:55  +
Beware of ".XYZ" Fraudulent and Cloned Websites or Domain Names

Online users are asked to beware of some websites that have names ending with ".xyz". This is because scammers/cybercriminals are abusing the Top Level Domain(TLD), by creating fake, fraudulent, phishing and malicious websites with names ending with ".xyz". We have even seen popular websites been cloned that have names ending with ".xyz", which cybercriminals use to trick their potential victims into visiting, thinking they are on the legitimate websites.

Please continue reading below.

Here is an example:

Cybercriminals can clone or create a fake copy of "www.hotmail.com", call the cloned version of the website "www.hotmail.xyz". Many online users who are tricked into visiting the fake website, would not notice the “.xyz” at the end of the name, or may even think Hotmail is using a new website domain name. Therefore, they would think they are on the legitimate Hotmail website. But, any attempts to sign into the fake website by visitors, will result in their Hotmail usernames and passwords being sent to the cybercriminals resposible for the website, who will use the stolen credentials to hijack the visitors' email accounts, which will be used fraudulently.

Online users who think they were tricked into visiting phishing websites that steal online usernames and password, should change their passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.

We are not saying all websites with names ending with “.xyz” are dangerous. We just want online users to be aware of those fraudulent “.xyz” Top Level Domain name(TLD) websites, which are being created by hackers, scammers and other cybercriminals.

Click here for a list of fake and fraudulent".xyz" websites that online users shoud never visit.

      I think they are. I ordered and paid for shoes and the completely the wrong ones turned up. They gave some crap excuse of some mix up and instead of offering to send them back and replacing them with the correct ones, they offered me a crapping 12% off for my next order.
      Not happy!

    Yet another, most likely, fraudulent website that pops up when I use my WVEC 13 News weather app: hxxp://us.desensitization889nl.xyz.

    It's a pop-up that takes over the entire screen of the phone saying that "my Apple iPhone is 28.1% damaged due to the Four virus"

    It then goes on to give instructions on how to install Applock for free on Google Play which supposedly fixes the problem. At the very end it gives another warning, "Don't close this window. If you leave, you will be at risk."

    Of course I didn't follow any of the instructions and closed the window without using any of the clickable options on the pop-up. Before I closed it I took a screen shot to show the folks at my cellular carrier to alert them of the situation and see if they have any advice. Do you have any advice?

    Hi. Any idea if this site is real or not, it ends with an xyz and seemingly looks real... but the name of the online vendor doesn't match the URL so it raised a red flag for me?

    hxxp://www.cfdjm.xyz It's presented as CFDJM but then in the "about" area it's called (hxxp://beyondemall.top is a leading international online fashion store), when really it's like a catch all almost Amazon.com looking vendor to me... any guidance would be appreciated. I've found loads. I would purchase if it's real, but very cautious now as the xyz concerned me honestly... before I give them my name, CC or other personal info. Thanks!
