Spoofed URLs are more common every day, and the spoofers are getting smarter too. Here is another tip that can save you a heap
of trouble. I know it works in Internet Explorer. I have heard that it works in Firefox, Netscape, and Opera too.

When you're on a web page that you want to verify, highlight the address in the browser address bar and delete it. Now copy and
paste the following code -- all of it -- in your browser address bar and
hit ENTER:

javascript:alert("The actual URL is:\t\t" + location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + "/" + "\nThe address URL is:\t\t" + location.href + "\n" + "\nIf the server names do not match, this may be a spoof.");


A small window like this will pop up:




Obviously, if the URL's don't match, get out of Dodge!

It's not a URL but more of a directive so no it can not be a tiny url (which don't work all the time anyways).

You can save it to a word doc on your desktop for easy access and then just open it copy and paste.
