Delta Airlines and the Pet Scammers

CBS news has recently reported that Delta Airlines has filed a federal lawsuit against the owners of a Pet Delivery Scam website called DeltaPetTransit.com

DeltaPetTransit.com was reported on Petscams.com on June the 3rd and an abuse report was sent to NameCheap.Inc the domains sponsor. Scamwarners.com also reported this scam website in May of this year as well as AA419.org who filed abuse reports also in May. Contrary to their ICANN agreement, Namecheap continue to sponsor websites used to scam consumers.

In their lawsuit Delta Airlines claim that “DeltaPetTransit.com is used

to advertise bogus pet air-transport services and to dupe intended victims into believing that they are dealing with Delta and are tendering pet shipment-related payments and fees directly to Delta,

In our investigations we found that the backend system was created by a scammer who we call “MoneyMan”. This scammer created a backend for these scam logistics websites and has been shared extensively among scammers since 2014.

The scammers behind this scam are difficult to find as they hide themselves well. Firstly they register their domain with NameCheap who they know will provide them with a safe haven (See here for more). They also hide their real information behind WhoisGuard which just happens to be owned by NameCheap.
The website is hosting is hidden behind a proxy service CloudFlare so it is very difficult to see who is actually behind the site.
Even if you did find the name of the person who registered the domain, Namecheap does not verify the contact details of the websites they sponsor.

deltapetsway.com

There is another site (https://deltapetsway.com/) which is identical in both CMS and content but is hosted on a different server (http://domainbigdata.com/31.220.40.22) As you can see this server hosts multiple scam websites.

deltapettransit.com also happens to be sponsored by Namecheap.inc which is to be expected.
