A Norwegian internet radio station was shut down temporarily earlier this week because one of its employees allegedly ran an eBay phishing scam.

eBay filed a complaint with the FBI after it discovered that the Norwegian was somehow involved with a credit card fraud operation. The worker purportedly copied one of eBay's web pages and coded it in such a way that credit card numbers and personal information were sent to him.

Because the man worked for NordicRadio, eBay asked the internet radio station's hosting firm to shut down the site. According to the FBI, which investigated the scam from the US, the fraudulent pages were uploaded through the radio station's servers. Although there is no proof that that the station actively facilitated the scam, the station bank account remains frozen as a precaution.

The suspect has stepped down from his job at NordicRadio and expressed his bewilderment with the charges, Norwegian daily Afterposten reports.

Norway's National Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) is still investigating. ®
