Warning: Stolen domains.

Warning: Stolen domains.

A domain investor from China has reported that three of his domains were stolen, and moved away from an eNom account.

Manhua.com, 5678.com and 26266.com are now in the hands of cybercriminals, who stole them and transferred them to Dynadot.

Domainer-friendly lawfirm, ESQwire.com, has been retained to enforce the rights of the domain owner; in another recent case of domain theft, ESQwire is working with a Japan-based company to regain control of several LLL .com domains. that have been stolen.

Jason B. Schaeffer of ESQwire stated about the incident:

“It is my understanding that Manhua was being developed for a gaming site. 

Thieves are indiscriminate and attack wherever they can strike.  Naturally, we are here to help so that’s two theft cases in the same week.”

This case presents an interesting twist, because the victim is Chinese seeking help from an American law firm. Usually it is a Western victim looking for help in China.

We will update this story as news change the status of the stolen domain names, Manhua.com, 5678.com and 26266.com.

    How does a new domainer safeguard himself/herself from domain thefts from his/her portfolio by cybercriminals ?

  2. Judging by the portfolios of most new domainers I’ve seen, I don’t think new domainers have much to worry about, as far as cyber crimes are concerned.
