    Hi,


    Today i received a mail from my hosting that a money transfer service referred my site to the FBI, they said that i used to steal accounts and commit other fraudulent acts including international credit card and wire fraud, wich is not true. My website is a fake money generator while you have to complete a CPA offer like other generators, such as getting free gold for a game and free followers for a social media platform. I have the name of the money transfer service in my domain name wich i'm wrong for that. In the generator you need to enter your email of the money transer service account but I DO NOT ask anybody's passwords and I DO NOT steal anybody's money!!


    Maybe they are thinking that i'm gonna use their email to ask the customers passwords later but on my website, you can clearly see its a generator while you have to complete a CPA offer.


    I already informed my hosting and they suggest me to refer my questions to a lawyer. Did anybody faced a similar problem like me? and do i need to worry about it? they referred it to the FBI!! I really appreciate it if anybody can give me some advice!!

    BTW. I live in Europe

    Thanks!

    You shouldn't put their name in the domain of your website,even the logo and other trademarks.They think you are a phishing site masquerading as them to steal credit info so they have the right to report your site to the authorities.

    Try apologizing to that money transfer service, tell them everything that you told here and tell them that you've taken the site down.

    Take down your website .
    Did you have a disclaimer on your website ..I think you didnt.
    Put a page which mentions a disclaimer and ask your hosting who lodged the complaint. If it was the money service whose name you were using. Email them and tell that you have taken down the website and your intentions were not cheating and you are taking down the website for good.
    If you were spotted by a investigating agency themselves then its trouble coming your way..

    I think if you do the above it would be enough.

    The worse thing that can happen is that they will take down the site because the US don't have jurisdiction in Europe.

    OP, if you are using somebody else's brand in your Domain name then just ditch the site.
    If they hadn't reported you to the FBI (they may or may not have done) you could have looked at offshore hosting but it is probably not worth it.
    Chances are that the brand want the site to disappear, once it has gone that will probably be the end of it.
    If you are really concerned then consult a Lawyer.

    Not entirely true, the FBI now work more closely with their European counterparts so if they investigate you, you can be arrested by your local police and held.
    The worst case scenario is that if there is enough evidence that you have committed a crime then you could be extradited to the US to face charges.

    Can you share what hosting are you using so we can avoid that shit company?

    *edit. Well fake money generator is not safe niche. Especially when you are using name of real money transfer service in your domain. It makes you looking like someone who is phishing users. Better to leave it in future or use some better hosting company.

    Dude; tell the same thing to a lawyer. Ask his if there's any solution to this. If there's a solution; try that. Otherwise, just forget the site and move on!
