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.

I particularly like that it's being "handeled inline". I feel better already! :)

One point for the White Hats. Hooray!

Sadly, the Black Hats are still in the lead by several grazillion points, but every little bit helps.

If you think you're paranoid.. there might be a reason.
I know.. doesn't help much.

Hello!
Just wanted to let you know I added you as a friend because I enjoyed your Xeromag polyamory articles.

Nice to meet you!
