Blocking Incoming Redirect (1 post)

    What I presume to be a fraudulent affiliate marketing ring has targeted my website and set up a one-letter-off fake site that redirects to mine. They're applying for all kinds of affiliate programs using my real site as a front.

    The domain registrar has been less than helpful in putting a stop to this, so I want a simple way to block all traffic coming from this redirect, effectively rendering this strategy useless.

    I tried this and a few other versions in my .htaccess but with no effect:

    RewriteEngine on
    # Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} flscalfizzle\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    Does anyone have an idea of how I could block this traffic and/or redirect it instead to an informational/warning page on my site, if possible? Thank you.
