Warning! Avoid the Facebook Scam Involving DisneyCruises-Competition [dot] com

Don’t be gullible, use life before it uses you. Understand there are no free lunches, and for every action you take, there’s a reaction.
 – Sylvester Stallone

Yesterday (February 24, 2015), this outfit, owners of the domain name shown in the title, set up a Facebook page, advertising a fake contest for a Disney Cruise.
(I’m not going to post the FB link here.)
The domain name is about six weeks old (registered January 4, 2015).
I guarantee you that this domain does NOT belong to Disney, which does not use privacy (see DomainTools for the Whois entry. 
Hundreds of people have already jumped onto the FB thread and, supposedly, have clicked onto the website, possibly compromising their personal information and/or catching a good dose of malware.
Unfortunately, stupidity and greed are fertile stomping grounds for criminals and cybersquatters.
I’ll do my best to bring these evil people from behind the shadows, by posting their details, such as they are, but I’m not optimistic – I keep seeing the same people posting the same-old, same-old Facebook scams, even after they have been warned.
