A word of warning to my readers on an MSN Messenger fraud that my 10 year old son fell for.
If you see a website that looks like this:
DON’T GIVE THEM YOUR MSN MESSENGER DETAILS!
The terms and conditions on the page say that they may use your details to log in to your account and message your contacts to promote their website. May means will. They also, of course, have access to your contacts, conversation history, profile and if you’ve bought anything off Microsoft or another company through your MSN Messenger account, they’ll have those details too.
The site is run through a company called TST Management Inc, based in Panama but owned by a company based in Hong Kong.
The company owns over 800 domains all for the same thing. I’ve reported this as fraud to the legal department of the registrant, namecheap.com but with so many domains from one customer I very much doubt they’ll do anything about it.
