I came across this site and my Norton 360 (anti-virus) comes up with a warning about securing a threat. Does anyone know about this site?

https://www.geocities.ws/mosquitoboat/ <<< Hyperlink removed for safety, do not use as this is a scam! >>>

Geocities.ws seems to be out of Arizona.

Frank closed his business quite a number of years ago. He is now busy building his 1/96tth fleet of warships. I speak with him twice a month and I'll give him a head's up.
Another lesson: Once something gets on the web, it never disappears....

I think ws is Western Samoa domain.

Might want to pop a couple of spaces into that URL to kill the link, so nobody inadvertently clicks on it.

After digging a little deeper, yes, ws is used for Samoa. Their ministry for internet services is as bad as these scammers and will not do anything about it. So, this is a warning to avoid them.

I started this post (when I found this bogus link) because I got an email from a CPO (retired) that is looking to build a 1/20 scale PT boat. He came across my 1/20 PT61 gunboat on my site. Anyone know of one for sale?

(BTW... I took the link out and added a warning on my original post.)
