Mistyping Gmail.com URL lures you into a pay-per-message scheme

A reader of my recent article on a page faking YouTube design to lure you into subscribing for a pay-per-message you receive scheme for mobile phones, told me that they came across a very similar one by typing wikipdia.org instead of Wikipedia.org. I noticed that also typing gmial.com instead of gmail.com takes one to exactly the same page design. Prominent is the “G” letter with a font that reminds a lot of Gmail/Google (but not of Wikipedia btw).

This time their last page seems broken, since it does ask for your phone number, but the UI to enter it is missing
