In terms of logical thinking, one can believe that once a fake site is reported for being used in frauds and got suspended, that domain will never surface again. Wrong. The domain just get recycled - the rules in this area assumes it will be used for good. We see this not to be the case in reality.

One recent example: commwealthbankau.com was a domain reported in http://www.scamsurvivors.com/forum/view ... =6&t=51925 by a victim who was scammed back in 2010 by fraudsters using that fake site. The domain was active for a year, being created only for the email address (the registrant was using the privacy protection given by the registrar to hide his details) and expired after a year.

Six years later, in March 2016, the exact domain was back while being used in the same type of online frauds.

Emails received from a victim:

Before talking about the work of the fake sites maker, let's take a look at the one building those sites used in fraud - pictures with his wife, children and friends not posted:

Studied at LASU
Lives in Lagos, Nigeria

His details given while registering some of the fake sites used in online fraud are already reported in http://www.scamsurvivors.com/forum/view ... 17&t=51755. In another way of speaking, he is a part of the same scam syndicate...
