Spamvertised sites seen so far are binarysmoney.com, clickmoneys.com and thinkedmoney.com, all multihomed on the following IPs: (Adnet Telecom / "Oancea Mihai Gabriel Intreprindere Individuala", Romania) (VTR Banda Ancha S.A., Chile) (Hosting Internet Hizmetleri Sanayi Ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi, Turkey)

Another site hosted on these IPs is moneyproff.com. All the domains have apparently fake WHOIS details.

It looks like a money mule spam, but in fact it leads to some binary options trading crap.

There is no identifying information on the page at all. Trustworthy? Nope. But let's look at that relaxed looking chap at the top of the page, in a picture called matthew.png.

Well, that's just a Shutterstock stock photo that is pretty widely used on the web. In fact, everything about this whole thing is a cookie-cutter site with text and images copied from elsewhere.

Binary options are a haven for scammers, and my opinion is that this is such a scam given the spammy promotion and hidden identity of the operators. I would recommend that you avoid this and also block traffic to the following IPs and domains:

I am getting the same emails which have a link for the binarysmoney.com website.

The worrying thing is, they are appear to be sent from my own email address. I changed my email provider password yesterday as a safety precaution, but I received another of there emails today, as if sent from my own email address.

Any advice out there?

Same here Helen,

I receive e-mails from them on my yahoo account. I changed the password and still the same :( I really don´t know what to do as I can´t bock myself.

It's trivially easy to fake who an email is "from" (I have a somewhat technical explanation here. Don't worry about it.. you are not actually sending out spam.

Thank you Charmer and Conrad for your replies. I especially feel reassured after reading the explanation in Conrad's link :)
