www.aa419.org shuts down 15 fake banks

On the 8th August, in their 12th Flash Mob, the Artists Against 419 have shut down 15 fake bank websites.

The 419 Flash Mob is an world wide online event against 419 fraud where
people from all over the world are celebrating a mass visit on
fraudulent web sites. Either these sites reach their bandwidth limit
soon, or the admins notice the traffic and close the offending web
sites.
