Website Ensures Threesome with Scarlett Johansson

Share

A charlatan who claims to represent the popular movie actress Scarlett Johansson, decided to start an online competition were the winners will be able to participate in a threesome with the actress, who is set to be the number one prize.

According to a website that was anonymously registered, the offer represents a part of a contest aimed towards promoting the upcoming movie directed by Woody Allen, staring Scarlett Johansson. The movie is called Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The website offers its email for anyone wishing to send the most "creative" answers as to why they should be the winners.

But the website itself doesn't include any official images or logos. There is no disclaimer, privacy policy or terms and conditions. In addition, the possibly fake site was tested online for viruses by LinkScanner and it turned out that it doesn't have any viruses or malware. It seems that the website, called scarlettjohansson.com, is just a flashy way to gather lots of email addresses.

It is worth mentioning that Hollywood stars has been the main bait of cybersquatters for more that a decade. (Webopedia defines the term "cybersquatting" as the act of registering a popular Internet address with the goal of selling it to its rightful owner.)

Before World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) was established such domains as madonna.com, juliaroberts.com and piercebrosnan.com have been used for cybersquatting.

Scarlett Johansson has only a MySpace page which is used to promote her music, but she doesn't have an official website. The domain called scarlettjohannson.org is currently taken by an unofficial fan club.

Scarlettjohansson.com was registered last year and currently WIPO says it has no record of a dispute over the domain.
