    Once CSR resets the account and give the scammer access, they can do whatever they want.

    Do you guys really think some guy in a black hoodie is "hacking" passwords? It's some 3rd world kid from a scammer hive calling banks, registrars, and other institutions all day long (using stolen personal data purchased on the dark web) saying:

    "Me Joe Black, me lost phone and forgot password.. please help!"

    "Oh yes, I know my address and phone number"


    And you know the primary job of any CSR is to help their customers right?

    Thanks for that Samer. That was an interesting read. I'm sure it was stressful for them but by the looks of it they were able to keep their cool to handle this.

    What probably helped was the fact it's such a well known domain. Good read, nice to get a glimpse of what approach to take and what's involved in recovering a domain.
