Kenzie has similarly set up so-called doppelganger domains to harvest emails intended for companies such as McDonalds, MasterCard, NewsCorp, and McAfee, the law firm alleges. According to Gioconda, which specializes in IP protection law, Kenzie registered the domain name GiocondoLaw.com, which is strikingly similar to the firm's actual domain, GiocondaLaw.com. Kenzie has allegedly used the doppelganger domain to create fake email accounts with which to intentionally intercept private emails addressed to the firm's lawyers and staff."
