Just an FYI - Just letting people know that Meta is trying to take my Horizon domains. They dont mention Meta or Facebook .
Meta's domain name guy (Daniel) asked for my list of names after I did some outbound. A week later their attorneys told me I have 7 days to hand over the names. I told them to pound salt.
Interesting enough, they dont care about my Meta names.
 
My recommendation in these situations is to always not respond.

They can't sue you if they don't know who they are dealing with.
Facebook aka Meta is a company with an almost trillion dollar market cap. I think they have the resources to figure out who owns a domain, especially when they proactively contacted them.

As far as the OP's post, I have no opinion on the merits of their claims.

They not only have the resources to identify the owner. They can tell you the owner's medical history, financial status, assets, search history, and every item purchased online.

I can see the issue on why they are requesting your names. You outbounded and tried to sell horizonengineer.com to a company that owns the trademark to "Horizon" and that company has engineers as part of its staffing. That is where it becomes an issue.
OUTBOUND has low success rate, especially with large corporations. CMOs, brand officers, merely wish to keep their jobs, not score points by hauling in domain names that they weren't seeking.

Usually works only if the company is small (less than 25 employees) and w/less than 50 million in funding, and you own a name that would be an upgrade over their current name.

My advice was more general.
