Favorite “unreliable” site idiotica.com. “facts about beluga whales” site: http://www.idiotica.com/encyclopedia/content/Beluga.htm great site for demonstrating proper search technique: if you enter “facts about beluga whales” in the google search box, the way some kids do when they’re filling out a worksheet for a project, the number one return is this fake website. And it even has the word
“encyclopedia” in the URL…If you do a google search on “octopus” you will come up with the second hit as ‘Save the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus”, A fictitious website.

Cloning sites to make fakes is easy – example from July, 2010: Hackers clone French Foreign Ministry website http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/hackers-clone-french-foreign-ministry-website-2027716.html
“France yesterday suffered what might be called a bad web day. A pirate internet site, looking for all the world like the official Foreign Ministry site, began bombarding the world with bogus declarations and announcements.” In this case, along with the cloned site, the creators went even further and offered up official looking but fake video.http://french-news-online.com/wordpress/?p=1877
URL for the fake site (now offline) http://www.diplomatiegov.fr/ and the real site http://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr
Cloned web sites are often used by scammers to trick users into sharing personal info. Also note, highjacked web site definition.http://futuresworkinggroup.cos.ucf.edu/publications/FWGV5Cybercrime.pdf
