No sooner did we announce the declaration of February 1st as National Punch a Domain Thief Day, and a group of domains was reported as stolen.
The domains 8KP.com, 3T6.com and A6Z.com were removed unlawfully from their owner’s GoDaddy account, and were transferred to the usual destination: the Chinese domain registrar and auction market place, Ename.
The WHOIS currently displays the following registrant information:

The process of recovering stolen domain names can take days, weeks and even years – as in the case of MLA.com. It can also take significant research, time and money, and the involvement of authorities, lawyers, and the court system.
Hopefully, in the coming months, GoDaddy will expand on its two-factor authentication availability to customers residing outside of the US.
If you are approached to buy any of these domains, keep in mind that they are currently stolen.
