New Free iPad Scam – Be careful of mispelled domains http://isc.sans.org/diary/You+won+100+or+a+free+iPad+/12184

QUOTE: Earlier today, SANS ISC reader Matthew reported one of his users stumbling over an odd “Click here to win your prize” page. We are still investigating the full contents, but it looks like several misspellings of wikipedia are used in this scam, in addition to many other domains.  Clicking through leads to another page, where to claim the prize lots of personal information must be entered. They even have a “Privacy Policy” of sorts in the fine print, and it even seems to be unexpectedly honest:

PERSONAL INFORMATION. We will share any and all personal information you submit to our Company with third parties who may have products or services you will find of interest. We will share your information without your additional consent. We may also use your personal information to verify your identity, to check your qualifications, or to follow up with transactions initiated on the Site.
