Malicious SMS sending victims to

I've been advised by Holger at Malware Domain List, that a malicious SMS message is doing the rounds, pointing victims to with the following SMS message (and variations thereof);

someone posted your full personal and banking information at hxxp:// website you must remove it now

I'm trying to find out which number is sending these so I can get in touch with their provider, and am trying to get in touch with Global Net Access, LLC, who actually host currently infects victims with the Ambler trojan (naughty naughty). If you receive one of these SMS messages, DELETE IT - DO NOT VISIT THE WEBSITE.

I've spoken some more to Holger and the number that was sending the text messages was;

+380672132627 has now also been suspended.

/update 20:30

I've been doing some research, and from what I can find, +38 is an Albanian mobile phone, possibly provided by AMC (Albanian Mobile Communications). I'm trying to get in touch with them to get this verified (if it does not belong to them, they will hopefully point me in the direction of the correct provider).

/update 20:50

Holger has advised me that +380 is actually the Ukraine .... (why the sites I looked at didn't mention that is beyond me).
