COMODO sites safe?

http://www.usaholidaybazaar.com/  FAKE FRAUD SCAM
http://www.onsaleplaygrounds.com/  FAKE FRAUD SCAM
http://www.elmamall.com/  FAKE FRAUD SCAM
(same scammers, different web host, fake COMODO emblem, no SSL )

2 fraud sites, same web host......
These 2 sites are the newest in a long line of fake stores using the Green Dot MoneyPak scam.
The fraud domain usaholidaybazaar.com actually has the COMODO secure authentication emblem on it.
(image below)
How can a scam site get an SSL certificate?
Are there no measures to prevent this?
Can any scammer using a stolen credit card get this service?
This situation leaves me feeling that I couldn't trust any site displaying the COMODO authentication emblem.
I have previous posts where scammers used COMODO for their fake sites too.
This same scammer:
http://netscammers.blogspot.com/2010/12/homeclearancefurniturecom-scam.html
and a different scammer:
http://netscammers.blogspot.com/2010/10/fv-groupnet-fraud.html

COMODO touts its browser plug-in, VerificationEngine, that supposedly helps people from getting scammed,  but it relies on sites in its own database. Will it tell you these fraud sites are legitimate?
http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/verification-engine.php
"VerificationEngine lets you easily verify that the site you're on can be trusted, essential to secure web-surfing."

Here are images of the fraud sites.
This site has the COMODO auithentication http://www.usaholidaybazaar.com/



 Lets hope no one is ripped off thinking they'll get playground equipment for their children in time for Christmas using http://www.onsaleplaygrounds.com/.


Both domains have been reported to the web host, who is usually good at removing fake sites from their servers.
Green Dot MoneyPak has a page on their site to help protect yourself from fraud:
https://www.moneypak.com/ProtectYourMoney.aspx
Please read it.

us-army-services.com FRAUD

http://www.us-army-services.com/  FAKE FRAUD SCAM

You'd think someone would have the brains to inform me of a new site related to a previous post  on my blog concerning this scam:
http://netscammers.blogspot.com/2010/10/us-army-deliverycom-fraud.html

....but no.
I had to wait until I received a clue to the whereabouts of the new scam site.
That clue was for someone to do a Google search for the term:
shopping@us-army-services.com

I knew there must have been a new site because of the recent spike in searches for things like:
us army logistics department
US Army Shopping & Safety Service

The new fake site is being hosted by:

inetnum:        83.170.69.0 - 83.170.69.255
netname:        UK2-INFRA-UK2-DOT-NET-BACKEND-SERVERS

Please send an email to:
abuse@uk2.net
in order to get the site killed.

Also read the post mentioned above and file complaints.
Stop being so complacent and let the scammers rip people off by not doing anything.

homeclearancefurniture.com SCAM

homeclearancefurniture.com FAKE FRAUD SCAM

http://www.homeclearancefurniture.com/
Same scammers as:
http://netscammers.blogspot.com/2010/12/ebaybillpaycom-fraud.html
These scammers are also running:
http://www.elmamall.com/
and
http://www.onsalesuperstore.com/

The scammers are plastering Craigslist with ads like this:
Mountaineer Swingset Slide Playscape - $549

Read more about these scammers here:
http://tucsoncitizen.com/bbbconsumeralert/2010/04/23/online-scammers-steal-cash-fail-to-deliver-playset/

BBB offers the following advice for consumers making online purchases:
•Beware of any offers that do not accept credit cards and ask you to purchase a MoneyPak and provide a MoneyPak number in an e-mail or over the phone.
•Reloadable cash cards like Green Dot MoneyPak and other methods of cash transfers like MoneyGram and Western Union should never be used to send money to anyone you do not know. These types of payments are virtually impossible to trace, and there is a good chance you will lose your money.

Here is what the scammers say on the fake site:
We process our customers Green Dot MoneyPak payments through PayPal. However, WE DON'T ACCEPT DIRECT PAYPAL PAYMENT DUE A HIGH CHARGEBACK RISK.
MoneyPak is a safe and secure way to send money to where you need it. The MoneyPak works as a "cash top-up card". Once you purchase it at a participating retailer with cash, you can use it to reload prepaid cards, add money to a PayPal account without using a bank account, or make same-day payments to different companies.
You can add any amount from $20 to $500 onto a MoneyPak at most retailers. You can add up to $1,100 at Walmart.
MoneyPak can be purchased at thousands of stores nationwide, including major retailers such as Walmart, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, 7-Eleven,Rite Aid, Kmart, Kroger and Meijer. Click here to find a store near you.
Pick up a MoneyPak from the Prepaid Product Section or Green Dot display and take it to the register. The cashier will collect your cash and load it onto the MoneyPak.
MoneyPak costs $4.95 or less. There are no hidden fees or charges. Just purchase your MoneyPak, use cash to load it and you are ready to go.

I am not able to monitor every domain thats created.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

• What is ThirdParty-Service?
Very simply defined, an ThirdParty-Service is a deposit of funds, a deed, or other instrument by one party for the delivery to another party upon completion of a particular condition or event.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• Why do I need ThirdParty-Service?
Whether you are the buyer, seller, lender, or borrower, you want the assurance that no funds or property will change hands until ALL of the instructions in the transaction have been followed. The ThirdParty-Service holder has the obligation to safeguard the funds and/or documents while they are in the possession of the ThirdParty-Service holder, and to disburse funds and/or convey title, only when all provisions of the ThirdParty-Service have been complied with.
Be sure to choose an independent licensed ThirdParty-Service provider, who is 100% neutral, licensed by the Department of Corporations (DOC), requiring adherence to the most stringent standards in the industry and whose sole business is providing ThirdParty-Service.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• How does ThirdParty-Service work?
The principals to the ThirdParty-Service (i.e. buyer, seller, lender, borrower) cause ThirdParty-Service instructions, most usually in writing, to be created, signed, and delivered to the ThirdParty-Service officer. If a broker is involved, he/she will normally provide the ThirdParty-Service officer with the information necessary for the preparation of your ThirdParty-Service instructions and documents.
The ThirdParty-Service officer will process the ThirdParty-Service, in accordance with ThirdParty-Service instructions, and when all conditions required in the ThirdParty-Service can be met, the ThirdParty-Service will be "closed." Each ThirdParty-Service, although following a similar pattern, will be different in some aspects as it deals with YOUR property and the transactions at hand.
The duties of an ThirdParty-Service holder include: Following the instructions given by the principals and parties to the transaction in a timely manner; Handling the funds and/or documents in accordance with instructions; Paying all bills as authorized; Responding to authorized requests from the principals; Closing the ThirdParty-Service only when all terms and conditions have been met; and Distributing the funds in accordance with instructions and provide an accounting for same - the Closing or Settlement Statement.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• Who chooses the ThirdParty-Service?
The selection of the ThirdParty-Service holder is normally done by agreement between the principals. If a real estate broker is involved in the transaction, the broker may recommend an ThirdParty-Service holder. However, it is the right of the principals to use an ThirdParty-Service holder who is competent, and who is experienced in handling the type of ThirdParty-Service at hand.There are laws that prohibit the payment of referral fees. This affords the consumer the best possible ThirdParty-Service services without any compromise or bias caused by a person receiving a referral fee.
What if the transaction isn't completed? Is my deposit refundable? Who pays the fees?
When a transaction fails to close, a cancellation agreement must be reached between parties. This cancellation agreement must be put in the form of a written instruction, just as your contract was. Since the deposit is part of the ThirdParty-Service contract, both the buyer and the seller must mutually agree to its disposition.
Instructions for the disposition if this deposit should include, among other things, provisions for the payment of charges incurred during the ThirdParty-Service. This would include fees and costs incurred by the escrow holder and charges such as loan processing and title insurance fees as specified in the ThirdParty-Service instructions.

In most cases you will receive packages for your name. But you will
sometimes receive the goods not for your name, I will explain why. When
we buy this goods, we use the virtual/prepaid credit cards. When we
receive these cards, we know only: the number of a card, expired date and CVV a
code. Actually, we use nonexisting names, and we cannot use your name
because ACTUALLY you did not buy this goods. Why the goods are sent not
for your name because shops and catalogues never will send the goods on
different shipping and billing info. You understand? But, as a rule, we
have the contract with shop and consequently you will receive packages for
your name.
Please confirm reception of this email!
Have a Good Day!
Hiring manager / Robert Rooks

http://www.trulia.com/homes/California/Aliso_Viejo/sold/28779463-57-Vantis-Dr-Aliso-Viejo-CA-92656

Here is some of the BS on the site:

ONE OF THE PROJECTS HANDLED BY OUR COMPANY IS PURCHASING USED, SLOW-SELLING, AND REFURBISHED CONSUMER ELECTRONICS PRODUCTS. THESE ARE PRODUCTS THAT CANNOT BE SOLD TO DEALERS AS NEW ONES BECAUSE THEY ARE DEMONSTRATION SAMPLES, DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS REFURBISHED BY THE MANUFACTURER, PRODUCTS REFURBISHED BY UNOFFICIAL REPAIR SERVICES AND WITH VOID WARRANTY, OR FOR OTHER REASONS.
OVER THE MANY YEARS IN THIS MARKET SEGMENT WE HAVE ACCUMULATED AN EXTENSIVE BASE OF CLIENTS AND SUPPLIERS, INCLUDING INDIVIDUALS AND MAJOR CORPORATIONS.
WE HELP OUR PARTNERS CUT LOSSES RESULTING FROM DISPOSAL OR STORAGE OF PRODUCTS AND ACHIEVE SALES TARGETS THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE OTHERWISE FOR THE REASONS MENTIONED ABOVE.
WE HAVE REPRESENTATIVE OFFICES AROUND THE GLOBE, SO OUR REACH IS NOT LIMITED TO THE US ONLY.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OUR PROJECTS AND IN EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES WE OFFER, WE ARE HAPPY TO OFFER YOU A WORK-AT-HOME JOB. IT WILL NOT REQUIRE ANY FINANCIAL INVESTMENTS OR A LOT OF TIME ON YOUR PART, BUT CAN BECOME A SUBSTANTIAL CONTRIBUTOR TO YOUR BUDGET!
WE ARE HAPPY TO OFFER YOU A WORK-AT-HOME JOB! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO INVEST MONEY IN ANYTHING TO BE ABLE TO START COOPERATING WITH US! ALL IT TAKES TO START WORKING WITH OUR COMPANY IS TO FILL IN AND SIGN THE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT!
FOR OUR PART, WE GUARANTEE TIMELY PAYMENT OF YOUR FEES!
YOUR WORK WILL INVOLVE ACCEPTING PACKAGES CONTAINING REFURBISHED CONSUMER ELECTRONICS PRODUCTS FROM OUR SUPPLIERS. PACKAGES WILL BE ARRIVING AT THE ADDRESS YOU SPECIFY IN THE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (MOST LIKELY IT WILL BE YOUR HOME ADDRESS).
A MANAGER ASSIGNED TO YOU WILL INFORM YOU IN ADVANCE VIA EMAIL ABOUT THE EXPECTED PACKAGE, ITS TRACKING NUMBER, NAME OF THE DELIVERY SERVICE, AND NAME TO WHICH EACH PACKAGE WILL BE ADDRESSED. THE AVERAGE DIMENSIONS OF A PACKAGE WILL BE 10X10X10 INCHES. INITIALLY, YOU WILL RECEIVE NO MORE THAN 5 - 10 PACKAGES PER WEEK (THE SUBSEQUENT NUMBER DEPENDS ON YOUR WISHES), MEANING THAT YOU DO NOT NEED A SPECIAL TEMPORARY STORAGE ROOM FOR PACKAGES.
UPON RECEIPT OF A PACKAGE, YOU NEED TO INFORM THE MANAGER ASSIGNED TO YOU, AND MEASURE THE DIMENSIONS AND WEIGHT OF THE PACKAGE, IF NECESSARY. THEN YOU WILL RECEIVE A PAID LABEL AND INVOICE FOR EACH PARTICULAR PACKAGE IN YOUR EMAIL BOX. YOU WILL HAVE TO PASTE THE LABEL ON THE BOX AND TAKE IT TO A COURIER DELIVERY SERVICE SPECIFIED BY OUR MANAGER (USPS, UPS, FEDEX). AS YOU CAN SEE, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR ANYTHING. WE PAY THE POSTAGE FEES, YOU RECEIVE FULLY PREPAID LABELS NEEDED TO MAIL THE PACKAGE!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OUR PROJECTS AND IN EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES WE OFFER, WE ARE HAPPY TO OFFER YOU A WORK-AT-HOME JOB. IT WILL NOT REQUIRE ANY FINANCIAL INVESTMENTS OR A LOT OF TIME ON YOUR PART, BUT CAN BECOME A SUBSTANTIAL CONTRIBUTOR TO YOUR BUDGET!
WE ARE HAPPY TO OFFER YOU A WORK-AT-HOME JOB! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO INVEST MONEY IN ANYTHING TO BE ABLE TO START COOPERATING WITH US! ALL IT TAKES TO START WORKING WITH OUR COMPANY IS TO FILL IN AND SIGN THE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT!
FOR OUR PART, WE GUARANTEE TIMELY PAYMENT OF YOUR FEES!

YOUR FEE WILL BE $20 FOR EACH PACKAGE , MEANING THAT YOU CAN EARN $200 TO $500 WEEKLY! WITH TIME WE WILL RAISE YOUR FEE FOR EACH PACKAGE YOU ACCEPT, SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO EARN EVEN MORE.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT YET, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU SIGN UP FOR AN ACCOUNT AT http://www.paypal.com/. PAYMENTS WILL BE MADE ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS FROM THE MOMENT YOU MAIL YOUR FIRST PACKAGE. AS WITH ANY COMPANY THAT VALUES AND CARES FOR ITS EMPLOYEES, IN ADDITION TO STABLE INCOME WE ALSO OFFER PROSPECTS OF CAREER GROWTH!

Here are some images of the site:




Additionally the web host was thoughtful enough to register the fake site using their information.
Does this mean they accept all liability for the scams?

UPS COMCAST SPOOF

UPS
COMCAST
The fraud shipping and escrow site:

(remember there is no such thing in real life as a shipping and escrow company)
The files for the fraud site are actually located at:

A newer site by the same scammers:
http://ups-deliver.com/

ups-express.com is registered using this information:
http://whois.domaintools.com/ups-express.com

The domain registration email address is another fraud domain:
kevin4hill@comcarst.org
http://whois.domaintools.com/comcarst.org
The domain is a spoof of the real site:

The fake domain actually forwards to the legitimate Comcast site.

Both domains were registered using:

FEDEX, Abbey National Bank, and JOB SCAM

Three scams one scammer.
As I reviewed my list of domains today for possible fraud, I spotted an obvious one:
www.fedexexpresscourier.com

The domain registration reads as follows:
Registrant:
   -1
   3456 TREVINO CIRCLE
   TITUSVILLE, Florida 32780
   United States
   Registered through: Zoho
   Domain Name: FEDEXEXPRESSCOURIER.COM
      Created on: 23-Nov-10
      Expires on: 23-Nov-11
      Last Updated on: 23-Nov-10
   Administrative Contact:
      Courier, Fedex  timothygre@ysb-ukonline.com
      -1
      3456 TREVINO CIRCLE
      TITUSVILLE, Florida 32780
      United States
      +1.3213719021      Fax --
As far as I am concerned -1 is not a valid name, therefore not only has the domain registrar, WILD WEST DOMAINS, INC. and ZOHO,  allowed a scammer (I'll show you more on that below) to register a domain using a trademarked company name (FEDEX), they also allowed an invalid whois entry.

This goes against their agreement with ICANN:
"All accredited registrars have agreed with ICANN to obtain contact information from registrants, to provide it publicly by a Whois service, and to take reasonable steps to investigate and correct any reported inaccuracies in contact information for domain names registered through them."
This statement can be found here:
http://wdprs.internic.net/

Now, getting back to the scammer.....
The domain mentioned above was registered using another fake domain:
http://www.ysb-ukonline.com/
You can see an image of what the domain displays here:
(just in case the scammer changes it)


The domain of course is another scam and a spoof of the now defunct Abbey National Bank PLC
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbey_National
If you do a Google search of the email used in the above domain registration:
timothygre@ysb-ukonline.com
You get this information.
If you Google the phrase in the title you get:
"Excellent pay rates, flexible hours. No experience necessary! Send a copy of your CV along with a cover letter to be eligible for consideration. Act now and put an end to your job search today"

This is but one example of how domain registrars and web hosting companies enable scammers and scams on the internet.
The reason this all happens if for one thing, greed.

An eBay scammer is sending re-direct files via 2 methods.

The scammer is also apparently sending intended victims to fake eBay pages and a fake eBay live chat area using the name Samuel A.

He is sending intended victims to the site:
http://www.kodak-slideshows.com/
It forwards people to the real Kodak site unless you are directed to the viewer download page.
(image below)
The download page is only available via email from the scammer.
The fake site is a spoof of the real Kodak slideshow site located at:
http://www.kodakgallery.com/gallery/welcome.jsp


The other method he is using is to send a file attachment via emails named pictures.zip which contains the file pictures.exe

NEVER open files from strangers, especially .exe files.
Its a program which takes over control of your browser and re-directs you to a fake eBay listing on another site.

Here is a reference to the scammer using the site for a 1980 Ferrari.

The scammer is selling a Ford F150 and using the email address:
fremaxami@yahoo.com
Here is what he is telling intended victims:

Hi, sorry I didn't reply earlier, I had to leave urgently on a business trip to Canada. The truck is still available!

I had a buyer, but the deal fell through because he didn't get his loan approved. I am still interested to sell and I am willing to let it go for less as long as we get this done faster.

I have also attached a few pictures of the truck, check them out.

(DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHED FILE !!!!!!)

Let me know if you are still interested. Thanks!


I've relisted the truck on eBay.

Right now I'm in Canada on a business trip and unfortunately forgot my cell at home, so it's best to email me. The truck is back home, but shipping is already paid, because my first buyer changed his mind after I have made the arrangements to ship the car. The trucking company would not refund me but can ship it to anywhere within continental US, so I've left it at their warehouse and it's ready to ship at anytime.

Item# is 170515682914, you can search for it on eBay
Buy it now price: $9,000

Title is clear! There are no problems with the vehicle whatsoever!

If you want it, you can use the "Buy It Now" option on eBay. This way our transaction will be protected by eBay. You will have to make the payment as a bank transfer, you'll find details on the auction page. However, if you request it, eBay will lock my bank account so I will not have access to the money you send me for the car until you inspect it and approve it. I'm OK with that too.

 
It's in Oregon, but shipping is free. Mileage is 59k.
Just to get a perfect idea of how this vehicle looks like and its awesome condition, I have uploaded some new pics on Kodak. Feel free to check them out:
http://www.kodak-slideshows.com/ (edited to remove location of the actual page containing the kodakviewer.exe file, image of it below) The domain is used to forward users to the real Kodak site.
I am selling because I need the money fast. Like I said I had a buyer and I was counting on the sale but he sort of backed out.
The car will not be available for inspection in OR, because it's at the shippers warehouse. However on eBay you can either place a lock on my account or you can opt for an eBay agent that will hold your money secure until you receive and approve the car. Basically you'll be able to inspect the car yourself before "giving up" the money.   So if you're serious about this thing please go ahead and use the "Buy it Now" option on eBay. I would love to get this done asap, even today if possible.
Here is a picture of the fake page which prompts you to click on the installer for the scammer's file:
