dlinshoes.com - Suspected scorecard manipulation

Post by williKi » Wed Dec 02, 2015 2:57 pm

Dlinshoes.com appears to be an online shoe store. The proprietor evidently is in a hurry to gain a favorable scorecard as IMHO all the green "good site" ratings are either friends/relatives/(themselves). All of the profiles have rated nearly the same sites, with just enough difference in an attempt to dispel suspicion. The IP (per HPHosts) 45.63.52.175 traces to "Vultr Holdings LLC" (Hosting) through Choopa LLC (Appears to be the rack space), the scorecards for both are interesting, to say the least. They do have some kind of Privacy Policy, however, I am unable to find any kind of contact address on the site (they have an online message form). The domain was created at the end of last August. The contact is a Gmail address only. Another edition of my 2 cents.

Chinese site with poor grammar.
Registrant address = fake
No contact address or phone number.
Security seals - McAfee Secure = Fake, VeriSign = Fake - they are collecting PII without any SSL certificate.

Wow, I just noticed the "Good Site" posts were a bit weird. I tried to check for a cert at hxxps://cryptoreport.websecurity.symantec.com/checker/views/certCheck.jsp, kept getting "applet error" (I hate java), then I went to the site and noticed no contact info. I really did not know they were that flagrant. Those accounts that gave those fake "Good Site" posts should be banned. More than likely, employees.

Still looking for the WOT store.

Some of the sites they rated (all have the same owner)

No contact address or phone number. Collecting PII without an SSL certificate. Payment with Western Union or Bank Transfer.
Incredibly cheap dresses.

Works for me. Just people showing their lack of credibility, anyway.
