How to kill a phishing site.

Thu May 03, 2012 5:53 pm

These are the easiest of the fake sites to kill, as the sites will fake a real site such as Yahoo, Gmail or even a real bank login and so are obviously fake right away. Let's use one I recently killed as an example. The link led to and was a fake Yahoo login. There's no way to claim the link was for anything but phishing. It's worth knowing that a lot of phishing sites are snuck onto genuine sites without their owners even realising it. So, a quick whois shows us that the Name Server (that's the site hosting the fake page) in this case was NS1.CEEJAYHOST.COM and NS2.CEEJAYHOST.COM. Going to redirects us to They have a contact form there, so all you need to do is put your (fake if you like) name, email address, phone number and message with the link, saying that it's a phishing page. Sure enough within the hour the link was dead. Some sites will have an abuse@ email address to write to. In that case, enclose the email and link location. I usually enclose the full email headers as well to be sure. And that is it. One fake link deleted.
