DomainTheft.org added eight new domains to their domain theft list today. The website has been operating for about a month now and has already amassed a good list of stolen domains. Anyone buying a domain from a forum or even a listing service like Sedo or Afternic should check DomainTheft.org first to make sure they are not buying a stolen domain name.
DomainTheft.org was launched in 2008 to provide a centralized database of stolen domain names. Any reported domain thefts are sent to DomainTheft.org and then verified for accuracy before they are added to the site. DomainTheft.org also keeps a list of known scammers on popular domaining forums. By taking a proactive approach to domain theft and online scam artists DomainTheft.org hopes to stop the crimes before they happen.
If you have had a domain stolen from you, or if you know any scam artists operating on domaining forums, please report them to DomainTheft.org.
