Default Weird Site Using Steves Digicams Address in Saved Link

I just clicked on the Steves Digicams link in my drop-down address list and wound up at a different site, also called Steves Digicams. Had to wind up going to google and getting here that way.

Has anyone else reported something similar? Just happened for the first time 10 minutes ago. I tried using the usual link I've always used several times and never got to this site.

Just thought I'd try again and yes, it's still doing it.

Here's what part of the front page looks like. Seems like someone's taking advantage of this sites' name.

Greg:

That site is http://www.stevesdigicams.com (not our site).

The address for here is http://www.steves-digicams.com

It's not unusual for companies to try and register site names that are similar to a popular site like this one, in order to take advantage of mistyped or similar names.

IOW, you probably mistyped the address at some point (leaving out the hyphen in between steves and digicams), so it's in your drop down list of addresses visited now. The correct url for here is http://www.steves-digicams.com, *not* http://www.stevesdigicams.com
