Looking suspect in my view. is linked to a public IP address which is currently hosted by Elvsoft SRL. is valuated at $0 USD because it could be making around $0 USD per day. Estimated that this domain receives 0 hits each day.
Server Host Location: in Romania. City: Otopeni.
Site created On:04-Feb-2013 & Expiration Date:04-Feb-2014 12:33:11 UTC
Registrant Name:WhoisGuard Protected
Registrant Organization:WhoisGuard

No, it's not sounding good. And having the site registered for the 12 month bare minimum does not instill a great deal of confidence.

And the james miller name appears in the earlier scam attempt in relation to Scam/Internet Fraud Victims Compensation Department. That was in the middle of the year twenty 10 and using the email addresses [email protected] and [email protected]
In twenty 09, james made another appearance. In October of that year he was pretending to be a delegate from the nigerian government reimbursement committee under the strict supervision of the United Nations to pay 150 scam victims the sum of 115,960.00 USD.

The English was a dead giveaway even before the fake site. Another case of scammers trying to pretend to be an American business or agency when they can't even manage the language properly.

As for the domain? A government-appointed agency does not hide behind whois guard!

The scammers have copied much of their information from a real agency, SIPC (
