No doubt the Internet has broken down international borders, but would you trust someone living 5,000 miles away in another continent for the latest information about your local airport?

Search for "JFK information" or similar terms on Google andthis site comes up first. It's actually somewhat convincing. The URL is "JFK-Airport.net," which sounds fairly official, and there's an up-to-the-minute message board with apparently real questions from people who need information. There's not a lot else, though -- generic facts easy to glean from anywhere, and scads of ads. The site ranks a heady second to the Port Authority of New York's official JFK Airport site using other word-search combinations. Trouble is, JFK-Airport.net is registered with fake WHOIS data to a Srdjan Stevovic in Belgrade, capital of Serbia, more famous for cevapcici than cutting-edge flight tracking.
