    Default Misdirect when looking for OR Add Ons

    I was looking for an Add On that does Reviews & Ratings. The developer told me he doesn't do stuff for OR anymore, and then told me that the Add On I was looking for was listed on this website:

    MODERATED - Please do not link to scam sites, and please review the forum posting rules.

    I went to the site, but it seems like a scam. It's telling me that I am the "winner" for my region. I presume if someone else clicks on it then YOU will be the winner for YOUR region.

    Any thoughts on why the developer would send this to me? I tried to do a WHOIS search, but came up with nothing. It sure as heck is not a list of OR Add Ons.

    Not a good idea to directly link to something here that you think is a scam.

    The original owner of that domain no longer does copy/paste development for OR and he let the domain lapse and it got snatched-up by a squatter who is now running a "you won" scam.
