Paypal-phish-net gone: Sorry we can't find that page...

Just woke up to find the phish net is gone.
The link now says: "Sorry, We Can't Find That Page".
So that's half a day of fish perhaps...

Paypal in the meantime has sent me a thank-you note (which my provider automatically put in my SPAM-box by the way.....):
