This is one weird scam. Someone registered the domain Faebook.com (Facebook without a C) and redirected it, using an iframe, to Amazon – of course, with his/her own Amazon referrals. It’s the good old tactics of using misspelled domain names for profit, but it’s uncommon to see such an obvious misspelling of a site as big as Faebook used like this.
Some have suggested this may be Amazon’s doing, but you can clearly see the difference in registration details here:
Domain Name: FAEBOOK.COM
Moniker Privacy Services
20 SW 27th Ave.
Amazon’s own records look different:
Legal Dept, P.O. Box 81226
Seattle, WA 98108-1226
Domain Name: AMAZON.COM
It will be interesting to see how this one pans out over the coming months.
PS: I wonder if anyone has registered Midacode.co.uk yet? 😉
