My guess is this.
The authorities will give them a fine and shutdown their IP segment. They'll re-open under a new name, new IP block and start again. A new legal company will start up and get assigned the Blacklisted IP addresses and realize that they can't send out mail. They'll then get the IP range un-blocked and the cycle starts over again.

Not to sure we really do have a permanent way to stop these guys.

Suggestions or comments about my perception ?

Subject: Taking Down Phishing Site
Hi folks,

Few months ago I have been analyzing some companies that offers its services fighting phishing websites that affect to your company. One of them is Hispasec, Hispasec is a company from Spain that has been doing a great work in these terms.

Now, my question is, what actions take those companies when they detect a phishing site in order to go down it. I am very impressive with the efectiveness and the speed to going down a phishing website the these companies offer.

The only action that I consider is to write/to call to the hosting company.

What actions these companies take? Or what others actions do you suggest to me?
