Alert: X3.com is currently a stolen domain; moved from eNom to Ename

ZFBot

stolen-domain-warningThe owner of the domain name X3.com shared with us that the domain is currently in the hands of a domain thief.

On April 5th, 2015, X3.com changed ownership “withing a window of 25 minutes” and was transferred from an eNom reseller – DreamHost – to the Chinese domain registrar, Ename.

The latter, has been popular with Chinese cybercriminals that stole many domains at various domain registrars throughout 2014.

Mr. AJ Alfieri-Crispin, legitimate owner of X3.com stated:

“Our personal domain name x3.com was stolen April 5, 2015. We have owned x3.com since 1995. Twenty years. Within a window of 25 minutes our domain registration information was changed at Dreamhost/Enom and then transferred to Ename in China. Think of the implications for you if someone had full control of your email address!!! I would love it if it could become well known this domain is stolen, and that anyone looking to purchase the domain should understand they are buying stolen property.”

We will update with any new information on the status of X3.com.

UPDATE: The domain X3.com has been recovered and is no longer stolen. More details here.

    Thank you so much for publishing this.

    Rathead squatting is when you take known trademark/sales-mark and buy the domain for it in hopes of getting money out of the trademark holder. This is out and out theft. It was ours for 20 frigging years, then they break in, change all the contact info, unlock it, and transfer it away.

    Mr Alfieri-Crispin,
    How did they get access to your account?

    Wow Rathead is way off base, trust me it’s no fun when someone STEALS your name the only good news is that all these names end up at the same registrar and that helps to add weight to a claim to get it back, sadly the law of averages means some of these THEFTS go unreported and the registry/entity gets away with it. Until two step verification becomes standard this is going to keep happening, when will Icann act ??
