Domain investor’s portfolio of numeric domains stolen by Chinese thief


Warning: These domains are stolen.

Veteran domain investor Satoshi Shimoshita, known as “toho” on DNForum, announced the theft of a large portfolio of mostly numeric domains.

The following 34 domains were stolen from his account at eNom, on July 27th and six more domains on August 3rd, after he had opened an emergency support ticket!

First batch of stolen domains, mostly numeric:

Second batch of stolen domains:

It’s hardly surprising that the majority of these domains were moved to the Chinese domain registrar, Ename. Some domains were moved to Dynadot.

Satoshi expressed his frustration over the slow pace at which the investigation is progressing.

Ename is known for making things very difficult to lawful owners, very often refusing to return the stolen domains to the losing registrar, thus prompting the filing of lawsuits against ‘John Does’ at the US Federal Court in order to reclaim them.

If you notice any of these domains being offered for sale at domain venues, let us know.

    I dealt Toho alot in the old days. Was great to do business with him and as well all the other domainers equally.
    This theft is hard if gone to ename as you said.
    But lets cross fingers and hope all is resolved swiftly.

    I wish Toho the best and hope names return with no legal battle.

    That’s terrible; certainly some very valuable domains there; I hope that he gets them back quickly and without a huge uphill battle. I own, so I hope that I’m not next in line!
