For the life of me I can't find it, but somewhere The False Italian(?) mentions an ISP response to getting fake sites closed which is full of real life suggestions, as opposed to the heavy approach that can be taken.
It is fairly recent - 2 or 3 months say, and when I read it I remember thinking it was not where I expected it to be (in the fake bank stickies). If someone knows where it is I'd be grateful for a link.

It used to be with the main scambaiting forum stickies, but now it's gone. Sad

I would suggest that you PM False or Lotta as they may have a way to get it to you. Very Happy

Thanks guys - if it's gone, that would explain things. I've sent a PM to TFI.

Gordon, can you be a bit more descriptive what it is you are looking for and I will try to track it down.

It was an email from an ISP chap who suggested that heavying the hosts into closing down sites was both counter-productive and simply empty threats. He outlined how they saw things and suggested we should tread a little more lightly and with more tact when submitting kills to them.

I think it was TFI who posted it and I can't think why it would be removed, so it probably got subsumed onto another sticky.

Thanks TS but don't waste too much time on it.

I have no idea why it was moved, but it's back. Very Happy

Quote:
Hi folks,

I'm a manager at an ISP. We've recently received emails from readers of 419eater.com, re a site that we're currently shutting down.

We're shutting down the site one working day after hearing about it, but the emails that we've received from you guys have been pretty rude.

So a couple of tips that are likely to make ISPs more responsive to you:

1) Don't be rude. Tends to put our backs up.

2) We're not in league with scammers. Apart from simple good net cititenship on our part, they've usually used a stolen credit card to buy our services, so we lose money on their accounts, and we want to cancel them and reverse the card transaction before it gets charged back. So don't assume that we're acting in bad faith - we're not.

3) Don't threaten. It's not credible, and it puts everyone's back up.

4) Be specific about what's wrong. Vague allegations aren't going to get you anywhere. You need to point to some evidence.

6) Don't be obsessive. The customer service person you contact is going to need to consult a manager - there's no point in repeatedly emailing them while they do this.

Thanks!

Thanks Lotta, that's the one (not TFI, eh?)
