With domain names about as long as you need them these days, and with most URLs even longer, short URL utilities are popping up all over the web, such as tiny.cc. Many scammers aren't very good with computers though, and about all they know how to do with them is e-mail. Not to brag, but I have an associates degree in IT, so I'm pretty comfortable with them. Some scammers are better with them than I am, however.
Just like an FTP client that you can set up on your computer to transfer files with, you can also setup an HTML client to share information, rather than signing up for webhosting service. This means that once such a client is installed, people can find your machine's public content on the internet using your IP address, and scammers have taken advantage of short URLs to do just that. Fortunately, the company or person running the short URL domain can as easily disable those links as well as any other.
You can see what's going on here with the scam-mail I copied and pasted to this link. When you see the fzy.co link, go ahead click on it (it's safe, otherwise the scammer wouldn't be able to steal any money for very long), and then pay attention to your address bar. It's a link which leads to 126.96.36.199. Then just don't send him any money, and close the link. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
