    Thanks for this info, actually we are taking steps in taking down that fraudulent site by communicating directly to the host.

    We'd like your help on this though: essentially we will need the Email Header of transfers@ebghonlineplc.com so we can file a more grounded legal complaint against the phishing site.

    It can easily be accessed by having transfers@ebghonlineplc.com reply back to you, via baiting tactics.

    Let us know what's your take on this. Every help we can get is invaluable and needed.
