1. The bogus page has been removed - but in the usual form of phishing scams, it would have contained a form to submit Banking and Card information which would have been captured by a script and relayed to the perpetrators.
2. The International Credit Card Regulations Agency (ICCRA) does not exist so far as we can find, and is a bogus organisation all together.


A phoney email purporting to be from a made up organisation (International Credit Card Regulations Agency) is part of a phishing scam ...


If you have received this email, please remember that it is very common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first, although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.


The Spoof Email ...

Dear Customer (your email address goes here),

We recently reviewed your credit card information, and we suspect that your credit card was used by an unauthorized third party. Our reports indicate that your credit card has recently been used for the purchase of a $87.00 product. The main banking server shows that the purchase was made in the area of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, via direct POS billing, Code:10. If the purchase has been made by yourself, please ignore or remove this email message. If you authorize the purchase, the billing will be approved and it will be shown in your monthly credit card statement.

Charge From: "Lui`s Watches Inc, Eau Claire" will be shown on your monthly statement.

If the purchase has not been made by yourself and you would like to decline the $87.00 billing to your credit card, please use the link below to decline the billing. Click on the link below and complete the form with the required information:

The form must be completed with the correct information, so we can identify you as the owner of the credit card.

Thank you for understanding and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
