UDRP Involving Name Registered Through Identity Theft


UDRP Complaint re ARAMCOS.NET. The ‘title’ Registrant, as in the person whose name shows up in the authoritative Whois, contacts WIPO and indicates that he (or she) is the victim of identity fraud, and had nothing to do with the registration of the domain name. After being informed of the UDRP, the operator of the domain name in question actually contacted the ‘registration service provider’ and allegedly proffered a fake passport in registrant’s name. The complaint isn’t clear as to how the ‘operator’ learned of the existence of the UDRP (however I’ve seen instances where all the contact info but for the admin email is fake – so there may have been a real working email attached to the name).

Complaint granted, domain name transferred. Decision here.
