History 1 of 1    
I accidentally mistyped as and it showed a very similar site. Strange thing was it kept prompting me for a password even though I was currently logged into POF. Any chance this is a scam password harvesting site?

....except that isn't what the guy said.

He said he accidentally typed in the URL and it brought him to a site that looked exactly like POF and asked for a password.

I just found one today called www(dot)it(dot)pof(dot)com

I was not given "a list of possible sites".

It took me directly to the site, which had user profiles, and asked for my password, even though I was logged in to the real POF already.

The domain in both cases is - it looks as though the web server is configured to ignore the prefix. You can go to and still hit the site. You can test this by opening a command prompt (Windows) or terminal (Mac, Linux, etc...) and doing an nslookup on the various domains... this gives you the machine-friendly IP address for the human-friendly domain name. It's kinda like looking up a phone number in the phone book. In all cases they'll resolve to the same IP address.

However if you browse to then you wont show as being signed in even if you're logged in to because the site uses a cookie to identify you and the cookie includes the prefix.
