Probably old news for those of you looking for hot domain tidbits... An enterprising criminal (from my beloved Las Vegas of all places), figures out that high quality generic domain names are worth a lot of money and tries to defraud unwitting registrants with a malicious ruse... until he's busted.
I just got UDRP'd (and beat) a similar culprit who is about to experience a change in lifestyle (due to lack of cashflow) and hopefully spend some time in prison.
This type of thing happens and goes un-prosecuted every day. It's important for registrants (regular people) to educate local law enforcement.. "Take the time to explain the crime" .. In my experience it's not that law enforcement officials lack the caring to pursue justice in domain matters. It's just that you need to spend 20 - 30 minutes to clearly explain why and where a crime ocurred and the incredible amount of money at stake.
With your help, the bad guys will turn on their heel and run. The bummer about the Internet (for the criminal element) is the undeniable paper trail.. Between payment method and access point (ip address) nothing is secret on the Internet.
