    WHOIS shows the registrant is in Russia, and that @linuxfreak is in Izmir, Turkey.

    If he bought an account containing domains as he said, and not the domains themselves, I'll leave it at that.

    When I bought the name and seller transferred the name, the OnlineNic support put my data to the whois because I had trouble doing that.

    Have you tried asking how much is owed? If it's just a renewal or transfer fee it may be worth it to offer to payoff the balance if you can get the name back. Then transfer it out asap.

    So far they told me that
    To my question which provider is that, they did not reply so far (silence in online chat).

    But this is kinda strange: I would definitely notice if this name went to auction, but I did not. Has anybody seen this name at auctions?

    So far it looks like;
    1) @linuxfreak bought onlinenic account which had disputed domain,from a seller who got that domain from snapnames.
    2) linuxfreak then pushes that domain to @anf in a domain trade.
    3) snapnames notifies that they had chargeback to onlinenic and they confiscate the disputed domain.

    Now we need to know the timeline of the above events to get more clarity here.
    If what @linuxfreak says is true that he bought the account, the intention of the seller was to dupe linuxfreak. There might be more such names in the account.

    Thank you everybody for the support. So far OnlineNic told that
    I am just curious: what are rules in those kind of situations? Could such "reclaiming" violate ICANN transfer rules?

    Not if you didn't transfer it.

    Buying "push" domains is crazy, as within that 60-day lock anything can and will happen. most of it bad. If you are spending any significant money, only proceed if you will get a valid transfer code and take that domain as far away from the original registrar as possible.

    So who did the chargeback? The guy who sold you the domain or the original account holder? Are they even aware an account changed hands? How much money are we talking?

    Good luck getting this resolved!
