The new CanCERN website may be dodgy

Some years ago the legitimate CanCERN website became redundant and ceased to exist. When it went so did all the files and newsletters associated with it.

Last week, on the 9th of August, the old CanCERN website name became active again. As of today there is nothing on it, but more may come later.  I have contacted former CanCERN people and they have no involvement with it at all.

Checks on the name shows the following: it has been registered in Dubai and the registrant lives in Sofia, Bulgaria. There is a NZ admin contact phone number in Auckland but it is not one I recognise.

Of all the possible combinations of website names that could be used only the old CanCERN one has been purchased.

When you think about it there seems to be no need for anyone in Bulgaria to want to use that name.  It may, or may not, be an innocent situation HOWEVER my advice is to not visit the site in case it has nasties on it – there won’t be any legitimate CanCERN information. If I find out otherwise I will post accordingly.
