The whois history looked strange so I contacted the owner Gregory Soo. He did not list the domain for sale. The domain was stolen from his Network Solutions account. Who can I talk to at Godaddy to get them to cancel this auction?

Network Solutions actually took out a domain of mine from my NS account and either sold it off, or there was an auction, I cant remember. In any case, they claimed their systems went haywire when I renewed the domain, and then a few hours later renewed again, as I decided to renew for a longer period. That was a total mess. I have the name back into my account. This was not a cheap domain.

Thanks for posting about this.

We (DNProtect) will list it in our stolen domain database and notify the appropriate registrars that it's stolen. (This is the normal process we go through when stolen domains are reported to us).

The domain appears to have been stolen from Network Solutions and then transferred out to NameCheap.

Thanks. that's a great idea. I know it's at least an hour wait when calling godaddy. does anyone have a contact phone or email for a manager at godaddy or godaddy auctions that I can pass along to the victim?

You might want to take a look at this.

However, if you look at the WHOIS record for the email address of the SOO domain, there is an email address using makaera.com, as the domain owner. And that domain expired. Did the current owner of SOO purchase makaera.com, set up the email address, and then take control of the SOO domain? Something doesn't add up here.

However, if you look at the WHOIS record for the email address of the SOO domain, there is another email address using makaera.com. And that domain expired. Did the current owner of SOO purchase makaera.com, set up the email address, and then take control of the SOO domain? Something doesn't add up here.
Interesting...

yes exactly. The person stole the domain. Now they are acting as if they are gregory Soo. But they are not. They have stolen the domain and now they are impersonating the prior registrant. You can see that the theif also created an account on Namepros called 'Gregory1' and posted the domain for sale here on December 13th - https://www.namepros.com/threads/soo-com.1260921/
Right after getting makaera.com. This thief is very bold. I wonder what country they are in. This domain is definitely stolen.

vir/.com and montreal/.com - it seems that admin email doesn't have 2FA. The tech email is using 2FA but it is not a smart idea to use [email protected] > [email protected]
