@ Saturnino,

Hi, I'm not involved with http://superwweb.com, I wanted to buy some products on this site and after having read this thread in which it has been reported as a scam site, I'd like to know something more about the reasons on the basis of which it has been reported.
Thank you in advance for the help! :)
Publishing the basis of our findings will only serve to educate Fraudsters.

Is it not enough that the site, upon scanning is seen as Suspicious/Viral ?

HIGH BARGAIN -CHINA

@lukchin. Welcome to AFI. The answer is both. After checking to see if it is a fake site anyone can send a report. Although we can now spot a fake easily we do checks before we report.
Naturally we do not discuss how we do this in public.
THIS SITE IS A FRAUD. I WAS ANXIOUS TO PURCHASE A IPAD AND COULD NOT GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND LOOKED ONLINE SAW WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A GOOD DEAL AND I GOT TAKEN. PLEASE REPORT THEN. THEY ARE GOOD AND CONVINCING. BUT A FRAUD NON THE LESS. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN WHEN THEY SAID THEY COULD NO LONGER ACCEPT PAYPAL.

iPad/iPhones etc are Price Controlled items on a worldwide scale.

Any distributor that sells lower that the recommended sale price will have their distributorship canceled.

This is Apple's Policy.

The site http://highbargain.com is a scam.

You can file your complaint at:

Chinese Authorities: supervise@cnnic.cn

Registrar: abuse@bizcn.com

Host: abuse@altushost.com

Do include all invoices, receipts of monies transferred, correspondences with
Full Headers.

cnnic.cn is in charge of .cn domains; .com etc. is none of their business.

What can domain registrars like bizcn.com do about spammers?--really not much--it simply isn't their job.

Apparently highbargain.com is hosted with dynamic IP. Although WHOIS does show a couple of IP addresses associated with the domain name, further check shows that they are unassigned. A reverse IP lookup while connected to highbargain.com showed that the host IP was in the range allocated to China Telecom Hunan province, so complaining to altushost.com is also useless.

Reporting spammers to Chinese law enforcement such as China's cyber police http://www.cyberpolice.cn/ may be useful. However, it requires knowledge in Chinese.

@ shng

supervise@cnnic.cn has in fact closed down thousands of sites.

e have had great success working with them.

Killing at host only is not a solution as the URL remains active, and allows the

Scammers to re host the site.

As advised, send the complaint to all parties concerned.

For http://highbargain.com

The Host is: abuse@altushost.com

org-name: ALTUSHOST INC.
org-type: LIR
address: ALTUSHOST INC.
PO BOX 1106

Registrar is: abuse@bizcn.com

Registrar:BIZCN.COM, INC.

altushost.com is rather compliant.

They require that you have proof of being scam or as to why the site is a scam.
Yes, it's hosted by altushost.com.
I looked at the wrong IP when connected to highbargain.com: the China Telecom IP was hosting a tool they use to track visitor's IP. But as you mentioned, killing at the hosting side is not a solution--they can easily rehost with the same domain. Neither is killing at the domain side a solution--they can easily register a whole bunch of new domains and even host the new domains with the same host.

Yes true, and these Scammers mainly Nigerians are using China as a base to

create Pseudo Chinese sites to scam.

The Chinese Authorities are very proactive and has made it a regulation
that Chinese Entities to set up a site, a .cn to register with their company registration, utilities bill, Telephone Numbers ( No Cell Phone Number ) and a proper address.

That is why we here at AFI continually seek them out and highlight them on the internet.

If you have a better solution, please do share.

I believe in getting law enforcement involved. Simply reporting to internet authorities like cnnic.cn and bizcn.com costs scammers little to nothing. The (China-based) scam sites exposed here are all in English language, and they are targeting English-speaking people. (Those sites are most likely associated with Nigerians but may also have Chinese and Nigerians working together.) There are also many Chinese scam sites targeting Chinese citizens (only), and Chinese law enforcement is actively pursuing them. A recent news says police in Mainland China and Taiwan cooperated to crack telecom fraud, arresting 451 suspects:
http://www.china.org.cn/china/2010-08/26/content_20794659.htm

I reported fafazone.com to http://www.cyberpolice.cn/ on Saturday, and less than 5 hours later I received an acknowledgment that the case report had been received.

I'm not even a scam victim, yet I encourage every scam victim to report to law enforcement.
