    I recently accidentally entered the mispelled google.ca (i live in canada) and it redirected me to a CPA offer that says im a lucky winner from my city.

    this is soo clever and blackhat but is this ethical? i smiled because i saw the same thing years ago before joining the IM biz and i was fooled.

    I'm not sure ethics exist.

    Pretty sure it's copyright infringement. There are numerous miss spellings of google.com which Google now owns.
