Somebody has been (poorly) pranking Monzo with URLs

regarding somebody who has been (poorly) pranking Monzo with URLs


This is not strictly media but I just noticed that redirects to Starling :joy:


Well only www. does, so not the most expertise in parts web ever seen!


Expertise enough to have signed up to WhoisGuard protection, so no-one can see that it’s Anne. :shushing_face: :sweat_smile:


Yeah when I click on the that link it doesn’t work unless I press refresh. I assumed that’s a discourse thing

Seems rather childish on their part though (starling not discourse)

Nah, they’ve just not set up the right redirection on their domain service. I’m no expert on these things (I’m all C++ and embedded programming and the like!), but it’s literally a set of radio buttons if you use Google Domains like I do. Privacy protection was a default as well

I suspect someone with even less web skills than I did so, but then it’s not exactly a high brow message. It’s very likely nothing at all to do with anyone at Starling, but they really muddied the waters by staging such a prank once back in the day


Anne is definitely up to something here :thinking:

Reference for anyone who hasn’t heard this story before:


Thats a good story that

It’s not Starling

Starling didn’t do this



Please elaborate on how you know this

This is becoming very interesting

Perhaps I should move this out to a new topic?

This isn’t really on topic now, amusing though it is

Thanks for giving this a new home @SouthseaOne. Now, time to get the thinking hat on. Who is behind these pranks :tophat:. Is it Anne, or is it not :thinking:

Someone needs to buy


Yours for £10 a year, though maybe Monzo should snap it up first

The good news is, is currently available… So… That’s a thing

Of course it’s nothing to do with Starling. Ridiculous to even entertain the idea.
