[SOLVED] IMPORTANT: There is NO phishing site for Webkinz!
Well I feel dumb now because I didn't check the domain that was being posted in the scam thread.
I'm sorry for not paying closer attention.
The site in question was popandsquish.webkinz.com. Once I saw the .webkinz.com, I knew exactly what had happened.
The popandsquish at the beginning of that address is what you would call a subdomain. A subdomain basically is a word placed at the beginning (or sometimes end) of a web address that allows domain owners to link to other areas inside their domain network. Basically, if you type in a subdomain followed by a website address and the subdomain name does not exist on the network, it will take you directly to the main page. Therefore, even if you typed bubbles.webkinz.com, tacos.webkinz.com, etc, it will take you directly to webkinz.com because those subdomains do not exist on webkinz' network.
I'm sorry I didn't realize this earlier, but I figured I'd post this up so none of you have to fear being scammed out of your username or password. Seeing as I have maintained domain names for 7 years, I would have paid closer attention and been able to have this cleared up much sooner.
All is well!
**edit: This however does NOT mean that all websites like this are legit! Always check to make sure it has either webkinz.com or zingoz.com as the domain!
Re: IMPORTANT: There is NO phishing site for Webkinz!
Yes guys, I see COWS4U posted that, but it's incorrect information. Look up subdomains if you don't believe me and heck, even check with webkinz. It is a direct link off of their site. Now had it been popandsquish.com, THAT would be a phishing site.
Now addresses can be spoofed but go ahead and try it for yourself.
Type whatever you want followed by .webkinz.com.
