Could it be a Honeypot? Honeypots are setup to attract people to catch them doing stuff etc. For instance a honeypot proxy server might be used and advertised as a anonymous proxy server where hackers and down loaders feel comfortable using the proxy server. But the proxy server is a trap where the data is sniffed.
And here lies the big question how do we know what sites might be honey pots? Infowars? Dailypaul? etc. The moral of the story should be that you shouldn't trust anyone with your data.
