Another dating verification scam site has been discovered. The site is LiveSafeToday.net.

See where it says “The SAFEST way to meet people online in [Your location]” in the top right corner of the page? The site uses IP location technology to get your approximate location and display it where [Your location] is. The verification form in the bottom right corner is used to get you to sign up for the porn site DiscreetHoneys.com, not LiveSafeToday.net. It is in a separate frame and the code comes from join.securepaypass.com. Also, notice that in the top left corner there are the words “Craigslist Safe” in big blue letters.
Although it says in the bottom left of the page that they have “successfully verified thousands of users since August, 2008”, The site has only been in existence since December 3, 2010, as you can see by looking it up at who.is.
The name servers for the site are ns1.global-host.org and ns2.global-host.org and the SOA record for the site shows that the DNS server administrator for its zone is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Name Server ns1.global-host.org email@example.com Serial Number 2010120803 Refresh 1 day Retry 2 hours Expiry 41 days 16 hours Minimum 1 day
Global-host.org is a fake hosting company. Its home page consists simply of a design template for a hosting company. Another site with this template is rcchost.com. Also, the site global-host.org was just created on November 19th, 2010.
