The "look-alike" site copies the artwork and structural design of the Securities Investor Protection Corp. (SIPC), the group formed by Congress to assist customers of insolvent brokerage firms that has issued the warning. It claims to represent the "International Securities Investor Protection Corp." in what is described as a classic phishing site.
破綻した証券会社の顧客を支援するために連邦議会によりつくられ、警告を出した証券投資者保護公社(Security Investors Protection Corp. - SIPC)の絵や構造的なデザインを偽装サイトはコピーしています。古典的なフィッシンサイトと説明されるこの(偽装)サイトは、"International Securities Investor Protection Corp." の公式の代理人と主張しています。

  • 偽装サイト:International Securities Investor Protection Corp.

"We know from information provided to us by individuals that this bogus group is already attempting to obtain funds and confidential financial information from investors in the U.S.," SIPC president Stephen Harbeck said. "We intend to use every available means to shut down this illicit operation."
「個人から提供された情報により、この偽グループが既に資金や内密の財務情報をアメリカにいる投資家から得ようとしている事はわかっています。可能な限りを尽くしてこの違法事業をシャットダウンするつもりです。」とSIPC会長Stephen Harbeckは伝えました。

A phishing site is a form of identity theft, Ben Greenbaum, the senior research manager at anti-virus provider Symantec said. Scammers build an authentic-looking Web site to mimic another in hopes of tricking people into providing personal information, like credit card numbers.
アンチウィルスプロバイダーSymantecの上席研究マネージャーBen Greenbaumは、フィッシングサイトは個人情報窃盗の1つと言います。詐欺師は、正当であるかのようなウェブサイトを立ち上げ、他者を装い人がクレジットカード番号等の個人情報を提供する事を期待し、そう信じこませようとするのです。

The bogus site, which was located at I-SIPC.com, has now been disabled and a message reads "This Site is Temporally Closed." The group behind the site claims to be located in Geneva and associated with the United Nations, among other organizations. A voicemail left for a number posted on the site and e-mail were not returned.

"Whoever is behind this scam definitely invested a lot of time and energy stocking the Web site with content to make it look legit," said Alison Southwick, a national spokesperson for the Better Business Bureau, who added that scammers often create look-alike sites to pose as genuine businesses or organizations.
「この詐欺の裏にいる人物は、サイトに正当なビジネスのように見せるためのコンテンツを入れる事に多くの時間と労力を投資したに違いありません。」とアメリカ商事改善協会の全国広報 Alison Southwickは伝え、詐欺師は多くの場合偽装サイトを作成し本物のビジネスや組織を装うのですと補足しました。

There were, however, various grammatical errors made throughout the fake site, such as failing to properly capitalize "Madoff," forgetting periods, or replacing commas with underscores. Greenbaum said consumers should look out for these types of mistakes as a possible indicator of a phishing scam.
しかしながら、多くの文法エラーが偽サイト全体にありました、"Madoff" と正しく大文字ではなかったり、ピリオドを付け忘れたり、アンダーラインをコンマと置き換えていました。消費者はこのような種類の間違いを、フィッシング詐欺のサインとして見るべきとGreenbaumは言います。

"Often all of the effort put into mimicking the spoofed site does not seem to keep the attackers from making simple spelling and grammatical mistakes," said Greenbaum. He said attackers in these scams "are often known to pick on the desperate, as well as prey on people who have already experienced some form of loss," essentially victimizing them all over again.
Madoff Victims
Images published on the site showed huge stacks of U.S. currency, which were claimed to be recovered in collaboration with Interpol. An Interpol spokesperson did not immediately respond to inquiries by ABCNews.com.

To support claims that the group has been successful in dispersing money, the site took testimony from actual Madoff victims – only the quotes apparently were lifted from a New York Times article and used out of context. It appears the group plagiarized an entire section of the Times article, originally published June 2009, which focused on investors struggling to recover losses.
グループは、お金を分配しているという主張を裏付けする為、実際のMadoffの被害者からの証言を利用しています:ただし、引用内容は明らかにNew York Timesの記事を文脈と関係なく使ったものです。グループは2003年6月に出版され、投資者が損失を取り戻すのに奮闘している事に注目した(New York)Timesのそのセクション全体の記事を盗用したようです。

Burt Ross of Englewood, N.J. was one of those quoted by the Times about his Madoff losses, but said he never talked to anyone from "I-SIPC."
ニュージャージー州EnglewoodのBurt Rossは、Madoffに関しての損失をTimesで引用された1人ですが、"I-SIPC"の誰とも一度も話しをした事がないと言います。

"I have never even heard of that group before and I just can't believe they would use my name in support of this when I don't know anything about it," Ross said. "Apparently there is no end to the evil in the world."

In an attempt to add additional legitimacy to the site's claims, the group quotes and paraphrases Madoff trustee Irving Picard of law firm Baker Hostetler, who is tracking losses from Madoff's Ponzi scheme. In several articles on the bogus site, Picard appears to support the claims that more Madoff money has been found in Malaysia, but he also said he has never talked to anyone from "I-SIPC."
サイトの主張を更に正当に見せようとする為、グループは、Madoffのネズミ講詐欺の損失を調査しているBaker Hostetler法律事務所のMadoff管財人 Irving Picardを引用し言い換えているのです。偽装サイトの幾つかの記事に、Picardが登場し、より多くのMadoffのお金がマレーシアで発見されたという(グループの)主張をサポートしているのです、しかし彼(Picard)は、"I-SIPC"の誰とも一度も話しをしたことがないと言います。

"I have never talked to anybody purporting to represent that entity," Picard said, "I did not give them the information. I don't know where they got it."

Picard declined to say whether Madoff money had indeed been found in Malaysia or if he had been in contact with the Malaysian government, as the site suggested.

"We conduct our investigation quietly," Picard said. "We do not share the information with the public in any way."

Madoff Trustee
But some believe Picard's refusal to provide victims with detailed information about his investigation, outside of periodic briefs on the matter, could lead to such scam Web sites. "Picard has been keeping his information extremely close to the vest, so it is a situation that can fuel the sort of rumors and conjecture," said Rob Stein, whose in-laws were victimized by the Madoff scam. Stein founded the non-profit Web site "Madoff-help.com" to help other victims.
しかし、Picardが被害者に、この件の調査について詳細情報を定期的な概要以外に外部へ提供拒否する事が、これらの詐欺サイトの原因になり得ると考える人もいます。「Picardは、とても情報を内密にしています、これは、噂や憶測に火をつける状態です。」と義理の両親がMadoff詐欺の被害者であるRob Steinは言いました。Steinは、他の被害者を支援する為に、非営利サイト "Madoff-help.com" を設立しました。

"Part of the problem is that there hasn't been a more comprehensive disclosure on the trustee's part about what he's doing and who he's going after," Stein said.
