Well; after thinking. I got to a conclusion, it's just 'proxy', and I don't think, it's a "Password phishing attempt" not sure though, but I guess. I tried to login there, and I successfully logged-in there, I even replied a topic from there. After 5 mins, I changed my password (Security measures). Nothing was suspicious. Ultimately, that site is useful for ban evaders, who wants to evade ban, that's a special 'proxy' for SA-MP forums. Just to help ban evaders.

You know, instead of using such a proxy, someone can just clear their autofill forms and cache. And bam, they can enter the side. Easy, no?

OP: Well, this is a strange case. The website's owner should get a SSL certificate, as it will let a person know when accessing a non-SSL site and which can be easy to detect so. Other than that, using this isn't some kind of 'phishing' attempt, I guess. It's only a proxy linking to a site, which isn't harmful. Correct me if I'm wrong.

It's not that easy, none of that changes your IP.

Btw, it seems the site is down now, as well as the nevadaroleplay site.
