  • OT: Scam busting

    I've been getting a rash of E-bay scams lately and it's ticking me off. I did some detective work and managed to track down the origin of a lot of the scams to a hosting service in France. I sent an e-mail to the abuse department an hour ago:
    -------------------------
    The web site at http-://vds-357037.amen-pro.com/ebay/index.html is hosted by you. It is an illegal fraud. It traces to IP 62.193.214.127

    Please take appropriate action.

    Regards,

    Evan Williams

    I just received a reply. Quick action, I'm impressed.

    Bonjour,

    This host has been unplugged from the network.

    Thanks for your report.

    Cordialement,
    Erwan

      I've seen a lot of really poor attempts made by people trying to pinch account information without properly protecting them self.

      In fact, I used to setup open HTTP proxy servers which appear to be legitimate
      "misconfigurations". Hackers would find one of my open proxy servers, assume it was misconfered with open access, and start hiding behind me.. They of course think nobody is watching them..

        My local Police want a button that zaps IP addresses, or deletes domains.

        I want to find some way to send 40,000 volts to the abusers keyboard.
