This Nigerian faker maker was recently reported in https://www.scamsurvivors.com/forum/vie ... =6&t=38897. He likes to use free subdomains for the stolen content and fake login pages and domain names for the email addresses associated with the fraudulent content showed on the free subdomains. He mostly impersonates banks and delivery companies.

The domain names used only for the email address are all resoving to Zoho, while being registered with NameCheap. Weird that the registrar mist noticing the same email address and phone number being used with different names in different locations...

Since May 25, 2018, the way ICANN decides to implement the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strips the registrant details. For domain names registered before that date, there are alternate options to find those details. Here is an example of what we cannot officially see anymore. We did not expose the identity of a real European resident. The details are entirely fake and were used to register the fraudulent domains reported in this topic.

Fake WHOIS details:

Registrant Name: Charles Igwe
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: 78 Calmag Avenue
Registrant City: Ikeja
Registrant State/Province: Lagos
Registrant Postal Code: 234001
Registrant Country: NG
Registrant Phone: +234.9055327590
Registrant Email: charles.i1@outlook.com

and:

Registrant Name: Ella Aroyo
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: 78 Calmag Avenue
Registrant City: Abaji
Registrant State/Province: Abuja
Registrant Postal Code: 234001
Registrant Country: NG
Registrant Phone: +234.9055327590
Registrant Email: charles.i1@outlook.com

There is no Calmag Avenue anywhere in Nigeria. Cal-Mag is a custom plant supplement. Still, we see that street name in two different cities in the same time. Those cities are not even close; distance from Ikeja to Abaji is over 600 km or 10 hours drive. Charles Igwe and Ella Aroyo are as real as their location is.

The fake sites claims to be Alpha Group Bank.

Alpha Group is one of Russia's largest privately owned investment groups, founded in 1989. Alfa-Banking Group includes Alfa-Bank Russia, Alfa-Bank Ukraine, banks in the Netherlands (Amsterdam Trade Bank), Belarus and Kazakhstan as well as financial subsidiaries in Cyprus, United Kingdom and the United States.

The fake one is active from a free subdomain, while pretending to be located in Brazil. From the fake site:

Alpha Group commence operation decades ago and has over the years recorded a massive investment and improvement, starting from the managerial team to the operational team work.


Contact details:

R. Lydia Ferrari Magnoli, Conjunto 304, 108 - Jardim Avelino,
São Paulo - SP, 03227-085, Brazil
Email: info@alphaagroup.com


They have an insecure page for opening an account, where the victim is asked to file his/her details in, and also an insecure login page.

This is what the fake site looks like:

The fake site claims to be D & A Filtration Group. The domain name is likely used in procurement scams.

From the fake site:

D & A Filtration has been a leader in fuel and oil conditioning for more than 2 years.Our company, however, began its impressive growth more than 2 years ago with a single solution – the invention of a water pump.


According to a press release posted on the fake site:

Press Release: D & A Filtration Joins Filtration Group Corporation
Jul 01, 2015


Indeed, there is a Filtration Group Corporation, active since 1942.

The domain name was registered in January 2018. The content is stolen from one of the real company subsidiaries websites.

There is no location on the fake site and no phone number:

There was nor is any active bank in Brazil named Empire Trust Finance. Still, while searching for the company location online, Google will be able to provide a map and also show that a company with that name is located there:

empiregoogle.JPG


How is that possible? Easy: scammers are abusing a loophole in the Maps API that allows for redirects to be put into Google Maps URLs. They chain the links to their fake sites within a link to Google Maps, essentially creating a more trustworthy URL that potential victims are more likely to follow.

"has been in existence for years" means since August 2018. The so called Brazilian bank is operated from Nigeria. For the fake site details: https://db.aa419.org/fakebanksview.php?key=133828.
