Watchout!

 Hi...

This online website (www . caketasticcakes . co . uk) is certainly SPAM! 

I recently ordered a gardening supply for GBP 24.50 with GBP 10.00 for shipping using my debit card. When the order was taken, my debit card was charged twice! I knew that there was something odd and I immediately cancelled my debit card and I lodged a complaint with the Cyber Crime department of the Chennai City Police (INDIA). A few days later, I received an email to inform me that the item had been shipped EMS (Royal Mail) with also included a tracking number! Since I suspected SPAM, I did not track this item. Yesterday, I received a package from an unknown sender which contained a silk scarf and not the item that I ordered. This package is from some unknown Chinese company! It is a SCAM! Mega Cheats!

Re: Watchout!

Hello Ranjitrs,

Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with this.  Intelligence wise, not too much was surfacing with respect to this.  How did you happen to come across this domain?  In any event, a couple of things i have noted:

You would think, something having to do with cakes would feature actual cakes on their homepage (laughs)

Then, there are some really questionable items revealed when doing a Google search:

Especially, pay attention to the last result.  "Sweetiedarlingcakes" might be another in the wings waiting to fool people.  Loot llama?  It does mention Caketastic Cakes followed by 'NEW SCAM' and 'The Invisible Ceiling Trap Scam!'  Just very odd to say the least. 

I have also taken the time to report these questionable domains right from the search engine result, as Norton is shutout with nothing but gray question marks...  At least once a week, i try to take the time to report on intel security gaps that Safe Web has in my Security Roundup series. 

Regards,

H.B.

Re: Watchout!

Hi Soul,

Sometimes i find that Safe Web does not always pin down the right locale, however, with this one, it seems to be all over the place:

What's with "4 changes on 3 unique name servers over 6 years"?  That seems odd...  Are they shifting the act? (laughs)

URLVoid has found:

Quttera confirms the location Safe Web found:

Re: Watchout!

Here's a good one for you. Georgia, good old US of A. LMBO funny. On the serious side of things, this has zero registrant information as well. Also appears to be using compromised networks to send and get bounce backs.

Cheers
