Adsit Website hack

Someone must be seriously PO'ed at Adsit!
Check this out:

Fake Adsit website

Real Adsit website

Note the mention of MercedesShop.com at the bottom of the fake site.
Phil just told me about this.
Hmmm

You can search the domain registrants online, just do a search through Network Solutions or another domain registration company. Theirs just happened to be the easiest when I did a search.

Cap'n - That registrant info is from the PO'ed person's spoof site. It has the domain name in the listing I posted....the domains are close.

Thats pretty funny! I think the fake site looks better then the real one!

Adsit probably deserves it, from what other people who have done business with them have reported. I think one memeber was trying to buy a rust free door from them. For some reason they didn't understand what "no rust" ment.

He may be upset, but I will bet he will be sued for a bunch of money by ADSIT.
