Looking at Google Domains there are something like 200 available domains for purchase. The unavailable ones are the ones I'm interested in though, and here is a sample of them that are already serving up scam sites.
DO NOT VISIT THESE SITE, THEY ARE SCAMS. This list it provided just to help educate the community as to how similar the links can look to to the official site.
As mentioned in an earlier article, these sites can look quite professional. There is a lot of money to be made scamming, so scammers will go to great lengths to look like the real thing.
