GOSH THANK YOU.

I haven't been here for a long while so when I saw this topic on the top recent I decided to check it out.

...and I got so angry. Never mind that I haven't been writing any for more than a year, the stories are still my babies!! YOU CAN'T JUST STEAL THEM!!

I've reported two out of the lists. It's so creepy to see your own name and stories and *shudders* REVIEWS on another person's works in another, questionable, illegal site(s)!

I recommend for everyone out there to check for themselves.

Bah, I totaly agree, even though I haven't written for years, those are still mine. This did happen though: feliciacraft.livejournal.com/37676.html for those who don't know yet.

Long story short, if you check search results, some of the sites have been removed completely from Google, although all our stuff is still on those sites.

There's another site. I found my profile here, just by using the ~ key and plugging in my username after the backslash.

Urgh.

http: // fixingcomputer.org/fanfiction/~pyreite

I urge others to check if their's is up too. Just copypaste or type the URL into your browser (taking out the spaces between the http: and the double backslash //), and put your user name is where mine was. I tried connecting to the website without the 'fanfiction' in the web address and without my username too. It gave me back an error, so with my username for example, it led me to a copied page with all my actual ffnet deets.

Not cool.

Think of it as a sort of spam. By allowing the ads to play on their websites they are getting more money the more ads that play. So by having 10+ different websites of the one particular website, they are getting 10 times the amount of money.

Warning: do not try to login to your account on any site that is not originally Fanfiction. It is how strange people get your email address. I learned the hard way.

Looked mine up as well, Pyre. Same thing as what you mentioned.

Are there any suggestions on what to do? I'm honestly thinking of scrapping my ffn acct

It's suggested in the journal link posted by Wiccan for this thread to report them to google, since that's the net's major search engine, and it's actually through googling that I found the site too. Just by luck mind you I was searching for something else and wa lah new spammy website.

Urgh.


There is a link posted in the journal by Velvet Whip that Wiccan posted that you can use to report spam to Google.

Unfortunately you need a google user account to report stuff. On the fake ffnet websites they're also peddling malware too if you click on any of the links.

I'd advise using any of the forms to report in the following Google Support page. Everything is there. You just need to choose how you report.

support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93713?hl=en

You could use the spam or the malware report pages.

For spam with a google account use: www.google.com/webmasters/tools/spamreport
For spam without a google account use: support.google.com/webmasters/contact/rich_snippets_spam

For a report on malware:www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_badware/

Note the malware one is the easiest. It asks for a URL and an explanation as to why.

Cheers

Another phishing/mirror spamdex page copying FFNet's stuff. I found this one by accident.

The address is: www.gofanfiction.club/

I can even find my own profile page. www.gofanfiction.club/~pyreite

Can peeps please report this site to google's spam page?

I've done mine.

support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93713?hl=en

You could do either the spam or malware ones. Since this site i.e. gofanfiction is likely to contain malware if you click the links. And steals login details so its phishing for usernames and passwords on their login page (which is a duplicate of FFNet's).

Note that all of the pages reported at the start of this thread in Velvet Whip's blog are mostly offline, I think, from what I could check.

Cheers

Reported! That's a perfect replica of FFN. Hopefully it will be taken down soon.

These sites are annoying.

Found another one by accident.

http: // www . animeultra. xyz

WARNING: Don't open and or click into or enter the site above as it leads to R18+ Adverts.

Please report it to Google as before.

Thank you.

~ Pyre

P.S: So that's why it was 'loading Ads'. Sorry Hairann, I didn't know. I use Moxilla Firefox and have installed the AdBlock plugin so weird things tend to get filtered out for me in Ads. Blargh, sorry, I would have posted an R18 warning for the Ads if I'd known. I'll be more careful from now on when I post the web addresses. I don't want to get our YIMs in trouble.

Apologies to Wiccan too, and all of our Dokugans that read this thread.

Do not open the link if you are under 18. I was hit with a few porn sites with nothing blurred...If possible, report it without clicking on it at all.

I checked the link Pyre gave the gofanfiction and is it like a mirrored site? My entire profile is on there, all my fics, my current poll, I gotta admit I'm really kinda freaked out by it.

Fanfiction has a secure lock on the site, but this gofanfic site does not, and almost unnoticeable changes. There is like one word off, so I'd say please be careful on there.

I also don't know the protocol since it seems like a mirrored version???

Nods, that's the right term. It's a mirror-site, the same as the ultra anime one, which was first mentioned in Velvetwhip's journal at the start of this thread.

The sites seem to be cropping up a lot, especially in the last few months.

I've come across some of them purely by mistake.

I recommend googling your username/usernames you use on FFNet, to see if they come up on any searches. Since that's how I found the last few sites. Google had search links to some of my stories from FFNet, even though the site wasn't FFnet, but some strange mirror site.

o__O.
