    Default Grand Mondial Fake News

    I live in New Zealand and over the past few days have seen this ad come up via Facebook many times, and I have been receiving loads of private messages from NZ friends sending me the following link : xxxttp://ordinaryglobe.com/how-to-reduce-energy-usage-at-home/ ( replace xxx with h )

    Basically it is a supposed news article advising that the New PM has now made online gambling in New Zealand legal, but that the only casino approved is Grand Mondial.

    Needless to say Online Gambling has always been legal in New Zealand.

    Why these guys have to resort to such low tactics is beyond me, and they give us all a bad name!!!

    Hi Topboss,

    My guess is that it must be some sort of a scam web address, but it's disguised in the web address that you've provided for us above.

    I wouldn't even bother opening it. Just delete it and immediately. Just in case there also might be another nasty surprise if you
    click it, like it might install some sort of a destructive trojan horse or malware (malicious software) of some sort.

    It is not a trojan website as I have already clicked on the link as the ad seemed so convincing and nearly caught me initially.
    Many people will fall for it though!

    Thanks for posting this Heather.
    I can't see the ad from here but I will chase it up anyway.
    In future, if you see stuff like this PLEASE send it to me IMMEDIATELY. This doesn't need to be floating around.
    Thanks.

    Edit: Heather can you please email me screenshots of the ad on that site and send me the link that it clicks through to.
    Thanks.
