UPDATED 6:12 P.M. EDT (MAY 7, U.S.A.) McAfee Site Advisor has issued a phishing warning for the website domain of “UPrivateBanking,” one of the “programs” targeted on Facebook at victims of the Profitable Sunrise HYIP scheme.

McAfee is an Internet security service.

The PP Blog, which uses the McAfee service, observed the warning on a Profitable Sunrise Facebook site late last night. The Blog observed today that, when it typed the URL for the UPrivateBankingSite in the location bar, a Site Advisor warning page appeared in the Blog’s browser window.

“Whoa! Are you sure you want to go there?” Site Advisor warned. “[Domain Name Deleted by PP Blog] may try to steal your information.”

“When we visited this site, we found it may be designed to trick you into submitting your financial or personal information to online scammers. This is a serious security threat which could lead to identity theft, financial losses or unauthorized use of your personal information,” Site Advisor warned.

Various boat-sharks for various scams-in-progress have been targeting Profitable Sunrise victims on Facebook. In April, the SEC said Profitable Sunrise was running an offering fraud from a mail drop in England. Some of the purported “opportunities” pitched by the Facebook boat-sharks promise to pay even more than the absurd 2.7-percent-a-day “Long Haul” plan advertised by Profitable Sunrise.

UPrivate Banking purports to be “an international financial institution specializing in investment and wealth management.” Details about the “program” are exceptionally murky.

On Facebook yesterday, UPrivateBanking was pitched as a “business opportunity unprecedented in the history of Network Marketing.” The promo featured a photo of a MasterCard and urged Profitable Sunrise members to watch a YouTube video.

  1. Bogus. The site only asks for an email and not financial information. Look at the site before writing.

  3. Bogus. NORTON SAFEWEB says te site is SAFE. Owner of McAfee sought for murder. In Brazil the ite only ask for a BOLETO and no credit card information so your information is incorrect.

  4. I have been in UPB for a couple of weeks and I have 45 referrals.
    I made a payment of $20 via Solid Trust Pay and receivers end of email address is @e-currencybank.com.br

    I went to site http://www.e-currencybank.com.br

    It is an e-currency exchange provider in Brazil.

    Universal Private Banking will also be in Brazil, so this seems to be a serious opportunity and a next step to the e-currencybank.

  5. vulle: Universal Private Banking will also be in Brazil, so this seems to be a serious opportunity

    If it’s a “serious opportunity,” it is one being promoted on well-known fraud forums such as TalkGold and MoneyMakerGroup. And it’s also one that continues to trigger security alerts from McAfee.

    BTW, the link you left above is publishing these keywords in very small gray type:

    “Buy Sell Exchange E-Currency E-Currencyes Neteller Liberty Reserve AlertPay Pecunix Paypall C-Gold Perfec Money E-CB Free Account Investment Money Market Earn Cash On Line Money Business Currency Currencyes Profit Rates Trade Bank Forex Arbitrage Sure Bet Games Poker Cassino.”

    They are going to attract scammers by the boat loads.
