Anyone ever had a domain name get jacked (not expired)?

Some asshole convinced the registrar that he is the owner of a domain name via a photoshopped passport (with no picture ). they gave him access to the account, and he transferred out the domain name. Didnt change DNS or anything for a few weeks, so I didnt notice.

I needed to make some changes, log in…. no domain name. Been on/off the phone with my/new registrars. They froze the account for like a day, but then the guy said we sold him the domain, so they unfroze it, and he changed DNS.

Im retaining a law firm tomorrow, but I cant imagine this shit taking a few days.

shitty registrar. I’m assuming it wasn’t one that OT recommends (namecheap and godaddy)..

No, it wasn’t. Euro ones. One of the 2 domains that got jacked ended up on namecheap.

However the one I used (domaindiscount24) is owned by Key-Systems, which do brand protection… so thats really really fail.

wow, I always worried about it in the past but never had it happen…that I know of lol.

A .com? Might need to get icann to help even.

Is it at least a "valuable" domain? Or just something they wanted and figured this was their only way to get it?

Its in the top 500 alexa. Retaining a law firm

pretty sure blinger had one stolen from him. Not sure what the outcome was though.

whats the domain name bro you can tell it here, nothing at this point is going to hurt your reputation after what just happened.

and what the fuck you mean top 500 alexa

do u realize that means PR7 atleast

PR is bullshit. Cant say what it is, but Im flying out to Zurich tomorrow to try and get it back.

Its not a total loss, as the site lost about 50% of the traffic, but still fucking blows.

The assholes who stole it, are setting up a phishing site, but Im overloading their servers by hotlinking shit.

2nd domain is even more insane. They faxed a piece of paper with a letter head with info from the whois (company name), and got the registrar to change the email on file….. from a FAX. Then they reset the password, and transferred the domain out.

This is fucking retarded. Im gonna sue the fuck out of them.

what? whose this registrar?

jesus
It makes me sick that these faggots probably make a great living doing shit like this too

No its not.

Anyhow, I got the domain back lat night. Basically cost 4k euros. I plan to pursue this further and track these motherfuckers down IRL.

I have a hard time using any business with the name "discount" in it for anything that involves security or safety. Sorry bro, not making fun of your situation.

"Discount brand condoms"
"Discount motorcycle helmets"

Just couldn’t do it…:-)

haha…no, just expired. I don’t spend much time in the main anymore so I haven’t renewed it.

In for cliffs. Will hit you up soon.

Glad you got it back.

No its not.

Got hit with a massive DDOS attack the next day, fucking thing sucks. Over 1gbit or something.

Russians are some fuckers.
