Frantech.xyz scam

Be careful, when reading an e-mail, not to click on anything. It is very important to be careful of other scams, from what I saw a link redirects to a website to reset the password.

I did this topic, because there are many people who lose their accounts due to inattention

    Bytefend is the one doing this phishing scam.
    They've also been spamming emails and ddosing Francisco.

    it's the one who got banned couple of weeks ago on LET?

    How is xyz special in this? It costs almost the same as a .com domain. Any TLD that you don't buy for your "trademark" can be used for this.

    Because 6+ letter domains cost $0.99 to register. Easy to spam and throwaway. Check out 1.111B Class.

    Ridiculous, flagged. I don't think that @Francisco needs shady (or even criminal) tricks, he certainly has enough visibility and (well deserved) attention in the market.

    @admins Shouldn't the thread title be changed?

  • @Calin can you provide the email headers please?

    Yep, good example.

  • Been tracking these in the Frantech discord. If you get a new one please share: https://buyvm.net/beware-the-moshbear/

    The individual is harvesting public emails and then phishing or newsletter bombing people.

    There are a number of folks helping report and take these down - the .xyz domain was terminated by Njalla yesterday and Zoho took down the phishing form in record time.

    Yep, I’ve been very greatful to the helpers on our discord.

  • @Francisco how does he have a list of customers? Just general listbombing or do you suspect something more nefarious like a data breach?

    Only emails that he can dig up off public records (users shared their emails in channel, easily findable on github, etc).

    There was multiple people that got the resets/newsletter bombs/etc, that aren't even clients of ours (never signed up), they're just in our Discord with their email in profile, or trackable in some way. There was a user yesterday that got a reset on his generic ASN abuse email, one that he never uses on any websites.

    We've had a few people freak out swearing to Jesus himself that their email was entirely private and only used on Frantech, only to find it...in their public youtube profile, or github, or the latest, on their RIPE listings.

    He's scraped for domains at times, one of my whois protection emails got added to a bunch of newsletters the other day.

    Bytefend/Limes really has a lot of time to go around reconing people individually... but then waste their investigation on a simple phishing attack.

    Mostly sent from protonmail. I deleted them after making filters but they weren't overly interesting.

    Haha, at the rate LET is going (hotline/boomer/etc) outright scamming will be a common thing. Scams as a Service.
