ManilaFx Text Spam

Who else receives such messages? These are spam text messages that promotes the manilafx.com website.

Well, I did more research about this website to see who owns this (so that we can report his/her spamming a$$). Well, here’s what I found so far.

The domain manilafx.com is for sale for $3,0o0 (see source). That’s a lot of money for a scam/spam website. It is registered under GoDaddy and according to GoDaddy, here’s the details. Without any whois guard, you can really see who’s the owner (unless these are fake details).

I couldn’t find anything about Ori Hudson but there’s a website http://domaintrader.asia/.

Btw, another domain with the same modus operandi would be ManilaForex.com; Also for sale for only $10 (source)

So that’s it for now for my research on this text spammer / scammer. Just remember that do not fall for these spams / scams even if the news sounds sooo juicy… rawr Cristine Reyes!

Till next time,

PS: These are other text spams available such as cash loans, bank loans, accident and asking for money, someone talking in a different language and asking how are you, and many more! I only blogged this one because it promotes a website and I want to try to get to the bottom of it.
