Cloaked or spoofed HTML link checker.

You may have come across an HTML link in an email, or web page, that you would like to use, but are not sure if it will lead to a genuine web page or a scam. Spoof and Phishing email scams often contain these disguised links, but they are so disguised that you cannot be certain of where you will end up. This Link Checker looks for the commonly used characters found in cloaked links.

To use this link checker...

1. postion your cursor over the link
2. right click on the link
3. select 'copy shortcut'
4. position your cursor over the box below
5. right click on the box
6. select 'paste'
6. press the 'Check Link' button

Do NOT highlight an HTML link and then copy and paste - this will only copy the link's text description and not the code behind the link


follow instructions above on how to paste a link into this box

Please follow the instructions above to check a link


Important:

Even though the link may not be cloaked, this does not guarantee that you are going to arrive at a genuine web site when you use it. If the above Link Checker does not recognise it as a possible cloaked link, you should look carefully at the link (or the status bar message when hovering over it) to see that it matches the true URL of the site that you intend to visit. For instance, it only takes one character to be different to make it the wrong web site, for instance http://www.ebays.com is NOT the same as http://www.ebay.com. Scammers will also try to create URLs using domains that are very similar to genuine sites, for instance http://www.yahoo-billing.com/ is nothing to with the Yahoo site at all and was recently used in an email scam. If you are going to use a link, be aware of where your browser will take you!
