YP.ca Apple Maps Hi-jacked Listings

Feb 24, 2013
Ok so strange thing that's looking pretty sketchy. Found a listing for a well known, high ranking business in my region in Apple Maps. The listing has correct name and address but the URL is wrong. So I clicked it, redirects to YP.ca. Seem sneaky to anyone else?

Further investigation I see that there are over 1800 domains registered to the same IP address. Check a few, all redirect to YP.ca. In the case above the domain URL has a dash in it (domain-name.com) and the official business domain is domainname.com

Seems sketch to me
