Dear Fellow NationalistIn the past 48hrs you may have received yet another grovelling demand for money from the BNP Chairman Nick Griffin. Within the invitation to become a BNP member for life (fine in principle until he finds an excuse to purge said individual with the usual vitrolic nonsense that the individual concerned is a neo-nazi/State asset/Searchlight mole/crank/dinosaur et al) there is a link to paying online at the URL: http://secure.bnp.org.uk/life/
Well this is a massive mistake by Simon Bennett; the earnest yet disgruntled current webmaster who has had a major row with the current leadership in the past few weeks. Simon has undoubtedly helped propel the BNP website towards new heights of success but in the process of so doing some very basic issues, not least ensuring the content is of political interest and stimulating, but in this case the issue of security of information transfer has been overlooked. Everyone who is in receipt of this latest begging letter from Griffin must be warned that they should not give their credit card details via an unencrypted site. If the site was really secure it would be thus:https://secure.bnp.org.uk/life/Notice the prefix https://
May God help those misguided and gullible individuals who have already sent their personal details via this thoroughly insecure web page. The consequences do not bear thinking about - credit card phishing is one of the most common types of fraud perpetrated by Internet crooks. Please pass this on to anyone you know/think may be so minded to follow Griffin's latest (but most certainly not the final) call for cash.
With kind regards to the legion of genuine nationalists who remain true to the Cause,
Steve Blake Former BNP web editor
This is not the first time such a blunder has occurred.
There are other insecure pages here:http://secure.bnp.org.uk/donate/and herehttp://appeals.bnp.org.uk/
While I was looking for the elusive BNP Organiser Guides on the following page I was mildly amused but, more so, embarrassed by the BidVertiser Ad for "Accurate Psychic Readings". Could this be an ad for the latest money making scam by the desperate Treasury team? http://bnp.org.uk/organisers-guides/
