    Here's a new one that I have not seen before:

    It came up on Googleads on my website, and I quickly killed it via a handy little filter that they provide.

    A whois yields the following info:

    Navarama Inc
    Ste 433
    2550 E Desert Inn Road
    Las Vegas, Nevada 89121

    Domain servers in listed order:

    It appears to be run by something called Navarama - which provides the following information only:

    Navarama Inc.
    Suite 433, 2550 E Desert Inn Road
    Las Vegas, NV89121

    Suite 503, 77 Beak Street
    London W1F 9DB

    A 'whois' on the above is not yielding much information.

    Degree granting authority, owners? As usual, little info to go by.

    that would be UPS Store #1271

    2550 E Desert Inn Road, Las Vegas, Nevada 89121 is UPS Store #1271. I imagine it is rather dark and cramped inside "Suite 433."

    As previously discussed here, Navarama, Inc. also develops porn sites (Adult Focus) and runs a porn search engine (XXX WebFinder). They sell degrees without telling you the name of the school awarding the diploma, and claim that the World Distance Learning Council, an apparently non-existent accreditor, accredits all of their schools.

    Located at the same IP address and carrying similar domain registration details -, an 'under construction' site.
