ARIZONA (OCN) — Whatiddo.com is a underhanded marketing ploy for Tellafriendrewards.com. When you try to visit whatiddo.com, the URL cloaks a page that is hosted on tellafriendrewards.com using a frame page so the user has no clue what site they really are on.
Should whatiddo.com get reported (we sent a notification to the host a few hours ago) and taken down by GoDaddy (see whois lookup) all they have to do is purchase another domain name (if its not purchased already) and cloak it once again the page /taf/taf.html on tellafriendrewards.com
Since the site is in frames and does not say whatiddo.com or any other site on the page, they are free to use multiple domains (see below for other domains) to try to fool English speaking people from all over the world.
Here is a copy of the page source pulled earlier today.

Since they are eleven possible options, there is a good chance that they are using (or is planning to use) multiple domains to trick people into going to their site. They can then take the password you created on their site and test it against the password of your email account. Since most people use the same password all the time, a few email accounts will get stolen along with any information in stored emails.
