The Stellios Foundation - are they on the run?

The fake "Stellios Foundation" that I mentioned here, who appear to be running a credit card scam, know we're onto them.

A few days ago their web domain was registered as follows:

Since publishing that last Thursday they seem to have reacted. Their registration now reads:

Maybe they didn't like using the name of a Nigerian? Curious though that the phone number remains with a "954" area code. That's a Florida code, not Massachusetts.

Coincidentally, as I typed this, another email came in from them, identical to the first but from "Derek Stellios". At least they're persistent!

Persistently criminal.

3840 W. Hillsboro is "Deerfield Mall" a shopping center. The suite number is only 3 digits.

The "new" address is a single family home. Probably randomly picked out of a real estate listing, even though it is NOT for sale.
