    I stumbled across this site a while ago:
    Code:
    http://www.ngnavsys.com
    It's a clickbank review site. They use it to get clickbank product commissions as well as to sell their own product (it's actually a pretty smart idea).
    What baffled me is that when I entered their url to alexa, it gave me stats of a different domain
    Code:
    northropgrumman.com
    At first I thought they were using the fake pr trick, but apparently they're not.

    I checked previous content of this domain:
    Code:
    http://web.archive.org/web/20070515190104/http://www.ngnavsys.com/
    It looks like it a few years ago this domain belonged to the same people that own northropgrumman.com

    Does anyone have any ideas?
