There's a website out there called kfcdelivery. co . nz

The website is a scam. It looks like KFC but it's just collecting credit card information. Do not fall for it .

Funyy, but you didn't.

The site loads a KFC-looking page and immediately shows a "sign up form" where you have to enter your name, address and credit card information. When you submit that you will see a message saying "sorry, you can't order now, our site is overloaded"... But by then the credit card info is gone. So you never really get to place an order or anything.

Just don't fall for this folks.

DarthKermit: People actually eat that garbage?

I know people that eat pumpkin, brussel sprouts, liver etc but I try not to judge them.

Did Nate place an order? He's the Geekzone KFC king :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Interestingly, when I first heard of it at about 1pm, I went straight to whoistools and got a totally different result. Same name as registra contact. But ALL the details were the same.  And a 12 Liverpool St with +204 xxxx xxx number. And a onesoftnz gm address.    A reverse showed a few domains owned by Gamage on the contact email :)

I have to wonder if the domain holder did a back check and went oh hang on.. changing details

What's sad is the amount of people who likely fell for it.

Anyway, details before he realised he exposed himself:

registrant_contact_province: Auckland
registrant_contact_postalcode: 1010
