North warns on website cloning

North of England Club said this week that it had been made aware of a site which appeared to be cloning the front end of North’s website (www.nepia.com). It said that it was currently in the process of having the offending site taken down.

However, Rob McInally, director of marketing & communications at North, warned that cloning websites in this way was a fairly common occurrence. Based on previous experience, we expect the cloned site to be closed as soon as practically possible.

Following a thorough investigation, North confirmed that there had been no data security breach at North P&I and that all of its systems remained secure and operational as usual.

North’s official domains for legitimate communications are:

  • @nepia.com
  • @northpandiclub.com
  • @sunderlandmarine.com

Anyone receiving emails or correspondence from addresses outside of these domains, or if you’re encouraged to supply any details on a site outside of North’s official websites (www.nepia.com, www.mymindmatters.club, www.mindcall.org, or www.sunderlandmarine.com), “please treat these with caution and double-check the sender details and telephone numbers”, said North.
