You could attempt to contact the domain registrar instead. Taking the site down at the hosting company would allow for the site to be hosted elsewhere in a few days. Good luck.

Subject: Re: Phishing Contact for Yahoo

Did you start with http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/abuse/
http://help.yahoo.com/fast/help/us/sbiz/cgi_abuse
http://www.logbud.com/dns?host=yahoo.com
"Yahoo general phone: +1 408 349 3300" X1572
#2
#3
reportabuse (at) yahoo-inc (dot) com [email concealed]
Then it hangs up.
#2 Gives 408-349-1572

I did an 8 then a 0 and eventually got an operator that gave emthe #
1-866-562-7219 option 1; option 2; option 4
This seems to be wrong for the fraud department.
I think I talked to somebody in India, and without an account they could
not help. With this I can understand the issues that you are having.

How about the following:

What about a call to the FBI, if you know that this is a phishing scam
and have some proof the FBI would like that and react. Then I am sure
if the FBI called yahoo they would respond rather quickly.
