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

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

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

Please continue 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.top". Many online users who are tricked into visiting the fake website, would not notice the “.top” 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 “.top” are dangerous. We just want online users to be aware of those fraudulent “.top” 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".top" websites that online users shoud never visit.

    I purchased auto parts from this website www.wrhisale.top and got charged more than the receipt sent to me. I really think its a scam because they don't have a phone number and would not return emails. I called my bank to dispute the charges and said it's from China and the store says they sell shoes. WTF? on the process of getting things resolved with the bank. I wish I looked more into it than just settled with something too good to be true.

    I keep getting pop-ups from a site claiming to give away $1,000 Amazon cards. These ads debilitate my iPad. I cannot use my back button or escape these ads in any way. When I block the site (always ending in .top) a new, identical ad pops up with a new .top address. Is there no way to escape this???

      I have the same problem but only when viewing one particular website with Safari. It doesn’t happen on other sites (yet) or if I use Firefox for that site. BTW, if I depress and hold the back button, a history list appears that allows me to go back to the previous page.

    I have an Etsy shop and have just found many of my products have been copied and trying to be sold by at least 17 of these .top sites.

    It's clear this is a con as my product is handmade and only available from me and unique to me. Is there anyway to get them to take any listings with my product down?

      What are the names or addresses of the websites?

      delete


      • Posted: Feb 16, 2018 by an anonymous user from or near: Exmouth, England, United Kingdom

        So far these are the names of the sites that are using my listings:-

        crazehighly.top - getjusts.top - lockermarkets.top - charmdesign.top - mytotals.top - wholesharps.top - doublemode.top - entireextreme.top - storeplaces.top - passentires.top - palacestyles.top - enjoyprevalent.top - openrushs.top - realtotals.top - supplyrushs.top - reachfasts.top - looktotals.top

        It's awful as I know that anyone who proceeds with a purchase isn't going to get the product. I sell solely on Etsy. It isn't even a drop shipping situation as some of the listings that are being used are no longer available.

      The websites are operated by cyber criminals, therefore, the only way to stop them is to shutdown the websites, or educate people about the fraudulent websites so they do not shop from them.

    I have just done business on the site EXOTSHOP.TOP January 21, 2018 a solenoid valve order to 14,03 € shipping included.
    To date more news and not received the goods.I sent several emails without response.
    For me it's a fraudulent site, please warn the net surfers that this site is dangerous.
    Cordially.
