H-BoS Erupts


I've had a massive amount of bank phishing scams from Bank of Scotland/Halifax today. The count was eventually 221 e-mails and they're still coming.

All but two have come from a server registered in Canada at (Click the link and you get nothing!) Domains named include,,, and All domains and the server have been registered in the last few days.

I suspect all the registrations are bogus, but they may not be, so if you feel like checking some of the phone numbers, who am I to say no. Perhaps the unfortunates might complain to the police and something would be done about those that register domain names in the names of innocents.

Most of the details lead to :-

Domain Discreet
P.O. Box 278
Yarmouth, NS B5A 4B2
Phone: 1-902-7495331

It does seem that the Canadians don't seem to bother too much.

Perhaps, it would be a good idea not to buy anything Canadian.
