Womaves

There’s something hinky going on at Womaves.

On the face of it, the site is a woman’s magazine with some pretty interesting articles. Here’s a picture of a couple of them:

I’m not going to post anything but images here because I don’t trust the site. I’m not even going to post the URL, but you can Google it yourself if you want to take the risk.

I first came across Womaves when it started to follow me on a couple of my sites yesterday. It landed on two sites at the same time and, of course, I clicked the link to investigate. It took me to the WordPress Reader (so far so good) but then, when I clicked on one of those Read More links, something strange started to load in my browser. The URL said it was about Free Coupons – not what I expected or wanted. I closed the tab pronto.

If you do go to the site, I wouldn’t recommend you click on anything. Even right-clicking on the background of the site brings up something strange. You get sent straight immediately to some other site, but using this URL:

Again, this is just an image and is not clickable. Again, I closed the tab pronto.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty wary around the internet; there’s some funny stuff going on there (here), but I’ve also got a sense of adventure. Which is why, a few minutes ago, I posted a comment to Womaves (in the WordPress Reader) that said:

Who are you and why are you following me around?

Anyway, it made me smile.

So, let’s see what happens (if anything). I’ll let you know.

Be safe.
