Phishing is one of many web based companies worst nightmares, although potentially easy to resolve in cut dry cases within the US, other countries and have more lax approaches and there are many cases where multiple parties are involved over numerous country and legal boundaries where perhaps the domain registrar is a separate entity from that of the host.

An ongoing Phishing attempt has left us in the middle of such an issue, this being that the site in question is hosted within France, with French support and governed by French Laws. However the registrar is based both in the UK, US and France and named as the contact for the site in question, thus providing a means of multilingual support although ultimately also being registered as a French company.
Thus the dilemma short of informing customers of the phishing attempt and to be on guard we are a tad lost from a legal standpoint on a route to take, as short of a multilingual legal team to work with our UK team we are somewhat stumped.

As a result we're somewhat looking for previous resolutions to such issues where perhaps a more common US host has been in pursuit of a non us host to remove content?

any ideas?

If the host will not comply, it's best to contact the abuse department of the domain registrar. Usually the domain registrar will suspend the domain in cases of fraud and phishing.

If the domain is hosted in Godaddy, Godaddy will normally shut it quickly and do not give refund.

Most domain registrars ignore complaints unless there's a court order.

Your best bet would be contacting the owner of the website, if he fails to respond you can contact the datacenter.

Unfortunately we have already pressed the domain registrar and shortly the host although I can't imagine the Data centre getting involved. We are however aware that there are a number of companies seeking the webmaster responsible for fraud and other legal issues, it is a real shame however that the legislation and leg work involved means that ourselves and the other companies are unlikely to cause the webmaster in question much more than a "slap on the wrists" at great expense to ourselves.

strange world

Check if their DNS is provided by the same company, if not report the abuse to them to see if you can get them to turn them off even if temporary.
