Ladybugmum is an unknown quantity at this point

Default Unanswered: Webkinz.com not going to actual site.

Not sure if I am posting this in the right place, but I'm hoping someone can help. Today when I clicked on webkinz.com in my book marks, it brought me to a site, that was NOT webkinz world. Has this happened to anyone today? Or has anyone heard of this happening?
Thanks in advance for any answers.
This is what I get.

I am having the very same problem...

The only way I can get rid of this is to do these things.

1. clear my cache

2. reboot computer

3. DO NOT click any of the links on the log in page
FAQ, Trading Cards, etc.....

When we use to have spyware on our computer, when we would click on websites it would redirect us to other websites. Maybe you should check for spyware.

I think somebody hacked Webkinz. because on the link you can click it all brings you links to sites where you can buy Webkinz stuff. i think it's bad peeple trying to make money. this is a site for kids too so they could be ripping off the poor kids.

Default Re: Webkinz.com not going to actual site.

Okay...I am still having problems and spoke to my internet service techs. This is the story.

We did a trace on the path I take to get to WKW and this is what came up.

The path I took was from my internet provider, through another company, through a third company, to WKW. Somewhere along the way, either the second or third company, there must be like a "crossed wire" causing the redirection.

All you can do until that company fixes the problem is keep clearing your cookies/cache and rebooting. Hoping that the next time you will take a different "path" to WKW, thus avoiding the "crossed wire"

It worked for me. The second time I cleared my cache/cookies and rebooted, I obviously took a "good" path
