Alleged Domain Theft Involving 3 Letter Domain Names

4

Someone posting under the handle “Toilet-Monster” posted a warning on DNForum this morning about a reported domain theft that allegedly occurred with his Godaddy account. The DNF member has a iTrader rating of 30 and has been a member of the domain forum since 2007.

According to Toilet-Monster (great name, BTW), the following 3 letter .com domain names were allegedly  pilfered  from his Godaddy account:

  • EOZ.com
  • GEQ.com
  • KPT.com
  • RIJ.com
  • UWU.com

In addition to these valuable domain names, a number of other names, including 4 letter domain names, were also taken. Visit DNForum for the list of domain names.

If someone approaches you to sell names quickly, for less than market value, or using a payment method that doesn’t seem right, you should be extra cautious. It’s also your responsibility to do due  diligence  on the domain names and the seller whenever you complete a deal. If you don’t, you could risk your money and the domain names.

  1. Why the heck would he or she not have the DTVS on those domains so they can’t be stolen, even if his account it hacked into?

    I just don’t understand why folks don’t protect assets.

    Either way, that sucks, and I am so tired of thieves. Time to put this person in jail like the thief of P2P.com.

  2. Wow, all because he followed a phising email.

    When will people learned not to click on anything?

    When I get an email with a link to follow, I open another window, log into whatever website sent the email and try to find the page myself rather than playing with fire and taking a shortcut by following a link that may or may not be legit.

  3. Just to follow up to my post @ 12:35

    I’m not blaming the victim here, I’m just saying we should take precautions when doing anything on line.
