A Network of Fraudulent Websites – Antispywareum.net's Brothers and Sisters

Antispywareum.net is part of a bigger network of fraudulent websites. These websites are primarily concerned with selling the rogue anti-virus program Antivirus Protection and its many clones, like Antivirus Monitor and Antivirus Scan. Other websites in this network include Antivirat.com, Antivirea.com, Antivirart.com, Antivirvip.net, and many others. All of these websites can be remarkably convincing. They include fake testimonials, a fake support page, and a checklist with all of the imaginary features their rogue anti-spyware supposedly has. None of these features work at all; they are merely for show. The only part of these websites that actually works is the page where victims enter their credit card numbers. Don't buy any of the software advertised on Antispywareum.net. Their product is dangerous and you may become a victim of identity theft.
