    Well... country code 38 (in the phone number) relates to Yugoslavia before the break-up, so I'd assume it to be a scam. The website appears to be suspended too.

    Anyway, why would anyone post your details on a public website? Most "identity theft" is by hard-nosed profiteers. Far better to keep your details private so they can either exploit you or sell them off the highest bidder.

    Hope this sets your mind at ease!

    Oh, and it also appears on the malware domain list below, so I guess they were hoping you'd visit the website and infect your PC.
