scammers are using another DNS technique

Though wildcards are a part of the official DNS specification in RFC’s 1034 and 1035, there is really no simple way to defend oneself against this: even if wildcards were not officially part of the protocol, DNS servers could still answer queries for random domain names; in fact, even now there is no way to distinguish between a normal answer and a wildcard answer.
 
this means that to the domain  stupid.nu a wildcard was attached that made it look as if it came from  www.barclays.co.uk  or whatever else of domain and these wildcards could be even generated automatically http://www.posadis.org/dns/news/20050308-wildcard-phishing
