Labour Party Cash Scam Warning

Recommended Posts

The Labour Party have established a website entitled "What number baby are you?" which claims that 44million babies were born in the NHS since it was founded, and then claims to give you a number if you enter your name address and date of birth. The Labour Party then use this data to ask you to donate to their 2015 election campaign. Not only is this data not held securely, and can be used as a phishing exercise for criminal activity of the data gets into the wrong hands, the claim itself is bogus.

donation.labour.org.uk/index.php/nhs-birthday/birthday.php

Please note that (a) unlike today, during the early years of the NHS, many babies were born in independent trust nursing homes, or at home, and only registered for check-ups by NHS midwives, often on a date after the date of birth, and (B) postcodes did not exist prior to the 1970s and it is unlikely that your postcode is the same now as when you were born, it's just a way of getting your personal data.

The Labour Party are indulging in a false phishing exercise to extract cash under false pretences and are not holding sensitive data securely.
Be warned.


Cllr Arfon Jones (Plaid Cymru, Wrexham) has registered an official complaint with the Information Commissioner as the Labour Party are clearly breaching "Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003". They are conning people out of cash on the internet under false pretences. The Labour Party in Wales is currently using Facebook data of Welsh people to promote the cash scam.

And because I'm a developer, I took a look at their source code. Your baby number based on an estimate with a random value thrown in :ph34r:
// 1948-56for (i = 1948; i <= 1956; i++) {      baby[i] = 639235; } // 1957-1966for (i = 1957; i <= 1966; i++) {      baby[i] = 741440;} // 1967-1976for (i = 1967; i <= 1976; i++) {      baby[i] = 750896;} // 1977-1986for (i = 1977; i <= 1986; i++) {      baby[i] = 600815;} // 1987-1996for (i = 1987; i <= 1996; i++) {       baby[i] = 657099;} // 1997-2006for (i = 1997; i <= 2006; i++) {      baby[i] = 568653;} // 2007-2014for (i = 2007; i <= 2014; i++) {      baby[i] = 690252;}
var baby_number = randomIntFromInterval(baby_number_2,baby_number_1);

Amateurs!

Yes, I spotted that on their Facebook page and got as far as seeing they wanted an email address and backed away.

Invariably, you don't have to enter ANY email address, just stick a '@' in the box, or failing that, any random crap with @ in it. i.e. hdhdhdhd@fhfhd.fhf
