I wonder what 'taken down 140,000 scam websites" means?
Reported them to Google so they don't come up in a Goggle search until tomorrow under another name when they report them again ... ? Report a dodgy item to eBay? Report a fraudulent advert to Facebook? Or perhaps they've actively killed the hosting site and monitored the site content/owners in collaboration with international police organisations so they don't reappear whilst subjecting the perpetrators to the full force of the law?
I think I know which is probably true ... but I'd like the official line.
