Malicious web site withdrawn

The web site called 'Give Them Tomorrow', which was set up several months ago has just been withdrawn.
Donations had been sought for the relief of children in Palestine, but under duress. No donations were received by the D&D via the copied PenPal page from this web site. About thirty businesses (mostly accountancy firms in the south-west of England) had been listed on the web site as not having made donations.
An article about this web site was written by Lindsey Sill and published in the Mid Devon Advertiser. We thank her and the paper for that.
We heard yesterday from the purported 'webmaster' that she was closing the web site immediately. We were pleased to see that had happened.
