Postscript to the phishing scam

Many weeks, six emails, one complaint lidged in the ISP's automated ticketing software, and the phish sites I talked about here remained active and functioning.

But two hours after I make a LiveJournal post about it, the site is knocked offline and I get the following email in my mailbox:

HI
We are aware of this but can't comment further at this time however please be assured that it is being handeled inline with the local police

It's possible the timing was a coincidence, of course, and the site being knocked offline had nothing to do with talking about the phish fraud openly. It's possible, but it seems pretty weird to me.
