The aa419 Webservice Project is to provide automated access to our Fake Site Database. Our JSON API is a way for computer programs to read our database. Computer programs with a webservice interface can access and read from data from our database. Its intended use is to enable webmasters of anti-advance fee fraud websites to provide up-to-date lists and a search functionality of fake sites on their own respective websites. It's a way for webhosting companies, registrars, registries and for other interested parties (including Law Enforcement Agencies) to automate the search for fraudulent domains or to embed the aa419 database into their particular application. Our JSON API access is open to anyone who needs information about fraudulent entities in a more structured way than the public web-interface offers.
