After Apollo Hosting took the phishing site down, I got another email.
The Account was created last night at 11pm and would have been terminated by our Fraud department this morning. May I ask how you came across this site so quickly?
Just curiosity… and too much free time, I suppose. I researched it while I was playing poker¹
The IT guy from Apollo went on to say
these phishing sites are fraud and they originate in China and
countries that do not enforce WHOIS data. So it is very frustrating to
me. Huge waste of my time and of company resources. If you wouldn’t mind
forwarding that e-mail I would like to keep it for my records.
And, of course, I will.
You and I only see the tip of this iceberg. It is straining, not only web hosts, but credit card companies, businesses and people who get scammed and watch their lives get turned upside down.
