Last Update: May 28, 2014

Hey All,

Just wanted to give a heads-up to a SCAM, especially for those who are buying domain names. I read the article entitled, "How To Spot A Chinese Domain Name Scam" through my online subscription to makeuseof. Here's the link to the article in case anyone wants to utilize or read it:

If you read the blog I just posted - If It Doesn't Kill You,It Will Just Make You Stronger" You'll see where my personal webpage,www.grannysrockinchair.com was hacked into. I mean they completely took over my website! It was Chinese people, and after they hacked in to my Admin area, they posted about 15 posts directing people to their website which sells programs to learn the Chinese language. Now, I have to completely build my website, but it is what it is, I guess. I'm so glad I have everything transferred over here to WA now! I hop EVERYBODY reads this blog of yours and BEWARE!

So sorry to hear that Sherrie. WordPress here has Akismet plugin which helps protects against that.
I try to stay current on the newest scams, worms, bugs, viruses & trojans & communicate the warning to all. I like it that there are several organizations that "police" the Internet & let geeks like me know. Then I can warn others--like my WA family. :-) Blessings...

If you can get a 8.com, 88.com or 888.com. That would be a good Chinese domain name. Someone will pay thousands of dollars for it.
