  • Does the web site have an ICP certification number at the bottom of the home page? If not, they can be reported for not having a certification along with your problems with their web site.
  • Report the problem to the hosting company for the web site. This can be done in any country. Web site hosting providers do not want trouble or bad publicity and therefore often remove a web site if it becomes an issue to them.
