I am 99% sure this site is a scam, is there anyway to warn people of this scam?

Hi ianes1979, and thanks for posting.

Just a note that, MBAM is blocking access to BOTH links in your post above as malicious website.  From just some preliminary checks I've made, it appears this is another of those fake on-line pharmacies.

One of our Moderators should be along soon who can provide more info.

Best regards,

Pete C.

It hasn't been tested by SiteAdvisor yet so obviously that McAfee Secure label is false as are most likely all the others.

Not sure how to go about this but will email someone at McAfee and ask their opinion on what to do.

PeteC (spc3rd) is absolutely correct. This is not only a fake site but it's operating on a server which is blacklisted and classed as Dangerous (although see below).

http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_report?url=http%3A%2F%2Fnootropro.com

http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_report?url=93.174.93.135

I just added a site review on WOT  (this is a cheap and disposable throwaway site, there would be an instant replacement even if it were closed down tomorrow).

https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/nootropro.com

Edit : I have taken out details relating to the Spamhaus blacklisting since the domain responsible was taken down in June.

UPDATE

Ah, the perils of using multiple sources. Main peril : wildly conflicting information about some of the less-important things. That server either has 206 other websites (DomainTools) or 35 (IPVoid/URLVoid). URLVoid lists some of those it found as High-Risk sites - http://www.urlvoid.com/ip/93.174.93.135

The advantage of using multiple sources is that it allows errors to be corrected. The Spamhaus information is out of date, although the server should still be treated with caution.

ZeuS Tracker :: ZeuS Host www.exipogreen-ventures.com

I have removed the Spamhaus information from the WOT page and moved the warning to the WOT page for the server.
