Re: Go pro phishing site reporting

I just ended up at that same fake offer via a very official-looking Facebook ad; had I not known the price of a HERO9 already, I might have actually been fooled. Unfortunately, I closed Facebook, and can't find the ad to report it, but I took a screenshot with the date to show that scam site is still operational, in case that's helpful:

Aha! I found the aforementioned Facebook ad (well, not exactly the same, this one is a little more obviously fake, thanks being offered by "Sunday Club"). The page that posted it lists its email as isabellamacalister73043@yandex.com, which is like, the most scam address ever, and here's a screen shot for reference:
