Anti scam website forced offline

A website set up to warn UK companies about an international business directory scam has been pulled by hosting company Server Center after legal threats.

Server Centre, and its upstream supplier RapidSwitch, took the decision after a flurry of legal notices. Letters starting arriving from Birmingham solicitors Wragge &\1 Co in October last year initially alleging libel and breach of copyright. But after changes were made to the site, and copyright material removed, the letters continued. Anti-scam website forced offline | The Register
