#Domain crime: Federal authorities have seized #Modernatx domain name

Federal authorities cutting down on crime facilitated through domain names, have seized the domain name Modernatx.shop.

The domain was utilized in an unlawful manner, probably phishing, as it imitates the official domain of Moderna, manufacturers of a popular and highly effective anti-Covid19 vaccine.

The web site at Modernatx.shop now displays the following:

“This domain name has been seized in accordance with a seizure warrant issued by the United States Court for the District of Maryland after a Magistrate Judge found probable cause that the domain was forfeitable pursuant to 18 U.S.C. $$ 2320, 18 U.S.C. $ $ 2323 and 18 U.S.C. $$ 981. Notice of forfeiture proceedings for this domain will be issued as set forth by law”

It’s not the first domain that US federal authorities seize which attempted to pass off as “Moderna.”

The seized domain was registered on January 8th, 2021. Escrow.com reports that online scams are rampant in the year since the Coronavirus pandemic began.
