warning irmahurricane.com

Just wanted to warn everyone regarding a fraudulent website.

I was searching about domains registered regarding the currently active hurricane Irma and see what websites come up.

So someone apparently registered irmahurricane.com not just only to get the traffic but also to steal money from people who honestly want to help victims.

If you visit the website there is no info about who owns it but just a few pictures of hurricanes and then a PayPal donation link at the bottom.

The PayPal email when you hit the donate button is [email protected]

The owner seems to be an Indian person with no relation whatsoever with any organizations helping victims.

Is there any way godaddy can take down the website since the domain is registered there?

That's tasteless and possibly criminal..
Unless they can prove they have legal right or affiliation to be collecting money..

You don't know if they are fattening their own pockets.

Charity fraud is the number one way to steal large sums without legal consequence.

Did you see @Emmy101 post? whois address is in Texas, Linkedin details are in Texas , why are you sure that the website belongs to "an Indian person with no relation whatsoever with any organizations helping victims" ?

@Emmy101 only saying there is a similar name listed on linkedin there is no guarantee that the guy on the linkedin were the real domain owner. If you search "Shiv Shinkar Madari" on google you will get approximately 297k search result

@IMEZI and I didn't say that the guy was the same, I just asked a question: why are you sure that the website belongs to "an Indian person with no relation whatsoever with any organizations helping victims" ?

Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he's doing a good thing..and wont be keeping the paypal funds he will surely get in his own personal Paypal account for his own profit.

He's from India and they represent some of the most trustworthy telemarketers in the world. Also he's very intelligent and honest because we can easily find him and honor him with such an honorable deed. I'm sure one of us will take the time and contact the company he's working for and let them know that they have such a giving employee and the company should also join and donate to the cause.

Guyz.. slow down!!!!!
I am not doing any scam or trying to get money by fraudulent ways. It was just a humble attempt to help hurricane victims... don't you think if it was a scam I would not make it so easy for people like you to find my details.. . this is not forcing anyone to donate.. just for people in the close circle to help. I didn't know this would become such a big issue with people and so I have taken down the page. I donated money and food supplies for the Harvey victims and was just trying to find a way to help hurricane victims.
Please take down the posts with my personal details!!!

Why do you need your details taken down if you made them so easy to find? You should be happy that people know you are such a kind and helpful individual. Just out of interest, how are you distributing the money you have collected?

@ShivPrasad
Why would you take down a legitimate website which sole purpose of helping victims of a natural disaster if your intent was legitimate?
Then panic to hide your identity after your "Good deed" was discovered?
You should be proud of your efforts and its free advertising here on NP.
