I had both numbers removed from LinkedIn and most of YouTube. BFeely is correct, it's a crap shoot. Don't know if it's apathy of disorganized administration. LinkedIn acted quickly when given proof, though I have a sneaking suspicion that these scams originate from way out east, if you know what I mean.

Yet another number? Why am I not surprised? Well, let's do a Google search:

hxxp://invadedomainsnow.com/propa/ - if Firefox is working properly, pulls up a "Reported Web Forgery" warning.

hxxp://invadedomainsnow.com/dntxtest/ - same. Either they just started using this number, or abandoned it.

Bye the way, there is a live link embedded in the picture. Not sure, but someone might say something about it.

Oddly enough, it seems to have to be activated through a popup ad; browsing directly to it just redirects to timewarnercable.com
According to hxxps://who.is/whois/timewarner-support.com it is NOT owned by TWC.

Checking the ICAAN page, I strongly suspect that the admin contact is fake:

hxxps://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=timewarner-support.com

Apparently the same contact for another site;

hxxps://www.virustotal.com/en/domain/offshorest ... formation/

Registrar is 1api.net (colorful scorecard). This kind of activity appears to be a trend with these people.

Before anyone runs over to treeforyou.com for a look, FYI, it has come into the cross hairs of AVG Threat Labs:
