Three Stars Orlando

Post by difrawi_defrawy » Fri Mar 06, 2009 6:26 pm

Involved in this combined marketing / phishing for leads scam are about 6000 domains. Ratings of their latest sites are heavily influenced by scammers shills. Get them the ratings they deserve, if you please.

See http://www.aboutus.org/User:snagalot/ThreeStarsTeam.com for background info and a selected domain list, and http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/internetsolutionscorp.com for an extended listing.

If anyone else is interested in looking into these, here's a list of hostnames posted in SiteAdvisor comments.

Edit: Here's the same list without recently expired domains.

registrar

You'd need to be your own registrar just to maintain renewals...

@cotojo
O.K. you take the first batch of 10^3 and I'll take the second :-D

Seriously.
So what about the ones that have expired, or are pending for renewal / expire?
If the domain name expires, and chosen by another innocent party, how would they overcome previous "bad site" ratings?

Is there a script online / downloadable that you can feed a domain name (or multiple names) that would report not only active but expiration status.
Example, the first one on the list is: hxxp://www.100careerservice.com/
WOT pops up with the Warning Screen, but it is actually a safe, Network Solutions Parking Page because this domain expired 25FEB09 and is in "limbo" (30 days renewal grace period). There is no "site"

I do not think members having access to the mass rating tool should start plugging in all the names listed until they have sorted out expired / parked domain from active "real site" domains, and also verify active domain ownership.

Good point

As some are 'parked' and at present in limbo, is it matter of time before they return as they can be lucrative for the scammers behind them or will they simply create a new batch?

Ratings expire too and new ratings are considered more reliable.

Of course, someone buying one of the scammer domains can also notify us of the fact and we'll take a look at it.

it is actually a safe

I'm almost sure all the sites are safe to visit, but probably shouldn't be trusted. I wouldn't rate this domain green either, just because it might not get renewed in the next few weeks.

I do not think members having access to the mass rating tool should start plugging in all the names

Yes, one should always check sites before rating them. Also, the mass rating tool leaves a trail of comments, so others can evaluate the ratings.

Update: 37 (or 0,77%) of the 4798 domains had recently expired.

I believe these types of domains are regularly rotated, but unless they've been blacklisted, I don't suppose there's nothing forcing them to register new ones.

Some renewed

Post by cotojo » Fri Mar 06, 2009 9:51 pm

Some have been renewed until 2011 and lead back to the same pages every time, this will be a hard slog LOL

I'm running what I am pretty sure is a fake scanner, 12% complete after 6 hours and over 8000 problems hahaha........over 7000 are in the registry.....anyone who believes that would soon have a PC that wouldn't boot if they used it.

I'll let it run as I want to get all of the details first.....glutton for punishment :D

Some ad-hoc scripting.
