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.

Advertisements

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.

    "bsaleshow.xyz appeared on my facebook feed. I attempted to place an order using cards with good fraud detection (Mastercard and AMEx) and both were declined (MasterCard) or had errors in the card number or CVV (AmEx.)

    It does NOT appear in our list of fraudulent websites, so I wanted to alert you to this newcomer. FB gives them a wide audience, so perhaps they are becoming bolder?

        • Posted: Sep 10, 2018 at 11:00 AM by info

          Typical or regular HTTPS does make a website legitimate. It just makes the connection between you and the server secured.

          So, if you visit a fake or fraudulent website, the HTTPS will make the connection between you and the fake or fraudulent website secured.

          Remember, everyone can get HTTPS. Most hosting providers provide free HTTPS or SSL.

          But, there is a new or upgraded version of HTTPS called Extended Validation SSL that displays the name of the organization in the browser. That you can trust because the organization's information is verified and those SSL are very expensive.

    Be weary of web site from "cgcstore.zyz". Whether legitimate or not (cannot be absolutely certain), once you order an item-generally at a lower price than elsewhere- you receive two emails: the first looks like a genuine Invoice; the second is a 'Declaration':

    "According to the foreign exchange rate of the bank, the amount showing on your statement will be a bit difference (sic) from the price on the seller's website".

    And yes, when you see the charge in your credit card account it is always higher than what you were expecting to pay.

    And p.s., I have never received a product from them and they have never communicated back to me after I've attempted to contact them.

    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?
