The fraudulent website appears almost identical compared to the official one – with assets and even URLs directly pointing out to the official page’s URLs. Other links are internal though and that’s where caution is required. One wrong move here and you’ll provide the fraud site with important personal information that could be used against you.
A quick Whois look-up tells us that the server hosting the site is located at Russia, with a domain registration provided by dot.ph. A certain Frederik Havemann registered the domain from Hong Kong using the organization “Globe BGC”. These could be easily modified within the dot.ph’s domain manager so there’s a huge probability that these are faux information to cover the tracks of the registrant.
While the fake site has no SSL in place, the official site from globe has yet to fully implement the technology. A good SSL implementation makes sure that your connection to the site is fully secure – just like ours. Anyway, I’m pretty sure that Globe’s already doing their best to take down the site for the betterment of everyone.
