Now, after we clarified who the so called seller is, let's take a look at the so called escrow company...

The domain name dpdcourier.com was previously reported in viewtopic.php?f=17&t=39121 & https://www.scamsurvivors.com/forum/vie ... =6&t=38969 while being used in a recovery scam in 2015. At that time, the fake site was operated by a Nigerian fraudster.

The real DPD ( Dynamic Parcel Distribution GmbH) is being impersonated since 2007 by various fake sites pretending to be them or using content stolen from the company website.

The company has also an Internet Fraud Warning on their site: https://www.dpd.com/nl_en/business_cust ... ud_warning.

Since 2010, the company tried to protect their identity following the legal ways of protecting their brand, while the company was impersonated online by various fraudulent sites:
- dpd.es - 2010
- dpd-expressinc.com and dpdservicesinc.com - 2014
- dpdservice.net and dpd-transport.com - 2016
- dpdspedition.com - 2017

The cost of an UDPR for a company trying to defend it's name is roughly $2.500. A fraudster can register a fake domain name from 79 cents to $10, if he is not using a free subdomain. Even if the company wins and gains the control of the fake domain abusing it's identity, another fake domain name will just be registered sooner or later, without anyone checking before allowing that fraudulent domain name to become active. All the checks (if any) are done only after a victim loses money because of the fraudulent domain name and only if the domain name is reported. Even if reported, there are enough cases where Registrars turn a blind eye and do nothing, forcing the company to defend it's name in costly processes; in the meantime the average Internet user is getting defrauded again and again by the same domain names until they expire.

The fake site claims to be an escrow company.

Let say that Registrar checks are not extended to the domain name abusing the identity of another company. The content of the domain name seems to be also nobody's responsibility.
Most of the locations (and at least one of the phone numbers ) are stolen from MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company - the real company has nothing to do with the fraud. The scammers operating the fake site are re-using the same stolen locations and phone numbers on all of their fake sites used in similar fraud attempts.

The fake site claims also to be DPD, using the same stolen content and locations and the same phone numbers for a contact.

In the first stage, the fake site was registered on an IP belonging to Zyztm Research Division 10 B.V. According to a report posted on SpamHaus - https://www.spamhaus.org/rokso/evidence ... /main-info:

For many years this individual has appeared to be involved in providing IP address space and network access for known professional spammers, sites dealing in stolen credit cards, and botnet/malware operators. ZYZTM is listed in ROKSO under the SBL and ROKSO's Spam Support policy.

Due process?

Unread postby firefly » Sun Jul 15, 2018 6:28 am

While we cant expect a Registrar to check each domain name, we would expect a Registrar to take action if they become aware of a domain they sponsor being used to defraud consumers.

treuhand-transport.com & dpdtransport.com were reported to the Registrar - NameCheap - on June 6. On June 11, the Registrar replied:

We would like to apologize for the delay in reply caused by the huge load that we are currently experiencing.

Thank you for your email regarding the treuhand-transport [.] com and dpdtransport [.] com domain names. We have thoroughly investigated your allegation to the extent of our capabilities, but we were unable to validate your claim, unfortunately.

In this situation, Namecheap acts as the registrar only. It means that our ability to investigate the matter is limited since the content transmitted via the websites is not located on our server. Please also note that we do not own the reported domain names, we are simply the company the domain names were registered with. Considering the aforementioned points, we recommend that you contact the hosting provider, who would be in a better position to validate your claim and take the appropriate action.

Additionally, if you believe you are a victim of an Internet crime, or if you are aware of an attempted crime, you can file a complaint through Internet Crime Complaint Center at https://complaint.ic3.gov , who are in the best position to fully investigate any such issue across any/all service providers.


The problem is, sadly, that the Internet Crime Complaint Center does not address each and every fraud complaint. They retain statistics upon which law enforcement replies if they are addressing specific issues.

Also if the victim is not a US citizen, that victim needs to complain to his local law enforcement. There is no cooperation between law enforcement from various countries if the level of fraud is not high enough. As mentioned before, the company having it's reputation tarnished is free to waste money protecting it's brand, while the fraudsters are having privacy protection to impersonate that company again and again, despite complaints made.
Understanding the above, it's also clear why cyber-crime has become so profuse. Much of the blame can be put at the door of ICANN and some of their Registrars, as they have created the ideal environment for online fraud while denying the victims their basic rights. The only thing a victim can hope for, is that by sharing the fraud details, someone else may be saved from being defrauded before being too late.
