419 Scammers Duplicate Interpol Site

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


Scammers are getting more inventive and so it seems more technically advanced. They have actually duplicated the Interpol site to dupe people.

419 advanced fee scammers have created an exact copy of the Interpol website, which is expected to be used to dupe victims into believing they are dealing with the real International Criminal Police Organisation.

A spokesman for Ultrascan Advanced Global Investigations, a Netherlands-based firm which has been studying 419 matters since the mid 90s, says Interpolglobal is “the best scam site we’ve seen so far. They’ve totally looted the original Interpol site, by taking 200 megabytes or so of content and copied it to a remote server”.

They have totally ripped it.

The fake site is http://www.interpolglobal.com/

The website – registered last December by “Interpol” based in “London, Beijing, GB” – went up last week, but removing it won’t be easy as it is running from a server in China.

“419 scammers now include people with PhDs, well capable of creating good looking websites and running them from bullet proof servers,” says Frank Engelsman of Ultrascan.

The real Interpol has already responded to the new site.

“Interpol would like to draw your attention to a series of recent email scams sent to members of the public using the Interpol name,” the organisation warns.

Interesting stuff.

    I do a lot of research on scams and I can’t believe I’ve never come across this story before – good find!

    I see this post is from about a year ago, do you have any follow up as to what happened to the site? I would imagine Interpol would have been quite keen to get it shut down and catch those responsible.

    Yeah, no follow up – didn’t hear anything about it again although the site has been shut down.
