    I'm posting because my friend just fell for it and sent me it, but basically its telling people to recruit 10 other friends and then they can unlock legendary pokemon. I did WHOIS on it and it was made 14 days ago.

    Impressive they got that domain and good work on it: after u recruit 10 people u get a content locker survey.
