iSoof Domain (Website) notice says that it has been taken down by the FBI and mentioned as this domain has been seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the United States Secret Service (USSS) in accordance with a seizure warrant obtained by the United States Attorney’s office for the Western District of Pennsylvania under the authority of 18 U.S.C. 981, 982, and 1030, as part of a law enforcement action taken in parallel with the United Kingdom’s metropolitan Police Service (MPS) the Dutch National Police, and other international law enforcement partners. The International law enforcement continues to work collectively against cybercrime, wherever and however it is committed.
The iSpoof.cc website was allowing fraudsters to make anonymous phone calls from spoof numbers, posing as bank employees. Fraudsters paid between £150 and £5,000 a month in bitcoin to use the iSpoof service, contacting, at times, 20 people a minute, primarily in the USA, UK, Netherlands, Australia, France and Ireland.
Police believes that about more than £48m may have been stolen by criminals using iSpoof. This figure is likely to rise. Those behind the service are allegedly earning £3.2m and living “lavish” lifestyles.
