Heard back NetSafe now... Apparently they had received quite a few reports and passed this on to the police to investigate.

Because I'm brown.  Wish there was a more detailed and interesting back story but that's it.

That's a very disappointing reason. 
I was looking forward to tales of eating a bucket of KFC in 10 minutes or other such amazing feats.
Or that you had a snowy white mo and goatee with a penchant for funny ties.
Why cant real life be more interesting?

freitasm: Heard back NetSafe now... Apparently they had received quite a few reports and passed this on to the police to investigate.




At least someone was onto it. It took the FKC pr boffins a good 2-3hours and multiple posts from users asking/warning (which most ignore thanks to the mobile app unless they actively goto the page and clicking the posts by users) on their FB page to put up a warning report. Only to less than 45mins later post another normal hype-up new burger release post which would then bump the important prior down most peoples feeds thanks to FB algorithms. 

This one is a Hell of a Fraud/theft case if it is indeed NZ based however. But the graphics and menu make me think it has more offshore ties.

There was no way to report the Facebook post either unless you selected "porn" as every other option Facebook give ends up recommending to block it, not much use really..

looking at the source code it takes parts from a https://www.kfcdelivery.com.ph/ site which seems to be more legit.

I saw it last night and reported it to discountdomains.co.nz and they've since emailed back and said they're doing something. Things like that domain should never have been approved in the first place given the fact that there is trademark brand in the name.

I'll be watching with interest what the police do with it from here.  They frequently hop on the 'be careful, don't get scammed on the internet' gravy-train, here's a chance for them to catch one near red-handed.  Let's see if they're serious about it.

I would have thought registrars were required to make sure that domain details were all correct when registered. Whenever I register a domain for a client, I always make sure their registrant details are fully correct, and kept up to date. With Ozzie domains, you have to provide a business number, which goes a long was to prevent this sort of thing happening. A pity the NZ domain space doesn't have such restrictions on who can register them.

The word I have for these kind of people can't be posted here and you wouldn't be able to quote.
