Publisher: EIT DK - April 20, 2016

The Takedown 2016 analysis was set up in part to make the algorithm developed by EIT even better at spotting fraudulent stores. As this is the first operation where authorities have closed down many sites at once since the analysis “Kina på storindkøb” started back in 2014, EIT was obviously somewhat curious in connection with this takedown.
