A faithful blog reader (who wishes anonymity) sent me this link and it looks pretty cool.
The Internet Crime Prevention and Control Institute (ICPI) is a private membership organisation that fights internet crime (phishing, fraud, etc.). They work through legal and diplomatic channels to get the job done.
From my reader: “I have seen [ICPI] get results in taking down phishing sites (and others). The one I personally saw go down was hosted and registered in China, of all places. It took a week (kind of a long story as to why), but they got the job done.”
Good. We need all the help we can get.
