After someone tried to scam me via Flippa, I decided to take down the site. From there I took down 54 other sites all linked to them.
I'm sure there are hundreds more. However, a lot of these sites are listed on DNray as having been used to or tried to scam people.

If someone scammed you using one, be safe in the knowledge the sites are gone for good.
Here's the list:
Britexcoin.com
Cryptoexchangeltd.com
Policybitcoin.com
Coinair.net
Bitpolon.com
Cryptocomltd.com
Cryptonway.com
Cretacoin.com
Bitslun.com
Offxpro.com
Crypton-pay.com
Bituphold.com
Aerocrypto.net
Pax-coin.net
Quickgetcoin.com

I'm just happy that only a minority of people fall for these things. I have faith that most people with a reasonable education (or even streetwise) know bs when they see it

Good job.

I'm interested in how exactly you took down the site. Who did you report it to?

And how did you find out his other sites?

I think this info would be helpful to others.

Scammers sometimes create fake cryptocurrency trading platforms or fake versions of official crypto wallets in order to deceive unsuspecting users. The domains of fake sites are usually similar to the domain names of websites they are trying to imitate. Their differences from legal sites are so insignificant that they are difficult to recognize.

Fake cryptocurrency sites often work in one of the following ways:
Like phishing pages. All the data indicated on them, such as the password from the crypto wallet and the phrase for restoring funds, as well as other financial information, fall into the hands of fraudsters.
Like a simple theft. Initially, the site allows you to withdraw a small amount of money.
This creates the impression of reliability and profitability of investments, which leads to an increase in the amount invested. However, on subsequent attempts to withdraw funds, the site either closes or rejects the request.

Phishing fraud
The purpose of crypto-phishing is often the data of online wallets, for example, the private keys of the crypto wallet, which are necessary to access funds inside the wallet.
This type of fraud is similar to other phishing attacks and is associated with the fake sites described above. The attackers send an email, the recipients of which are invited to go to a specially created website and enter the secret key data. As soon as the attackers get this information, they steal the cryptocurrency in these wallets.
