Stolen domains: BNN.com and Brel.com in the possession of Algerian thief

Stolen domain warning

A persistent domain thief has usurped the domains BNN.com and Brel.com, offering them for sale privately and in public forums.

The domain Brel.com was used as the “trojan horse” to access BNN.com, a premium three letter .com domain. Its legitimate owner, Brel Software Pte Ltd, were notified of the theft only recently; the domains were stolen in 2018.

The cybercriminal offering BNN.com and Brel.com for sale has been involved in numerous domain thefts over the years, including that of ASZ.com, an orphaned domain name whose owner has been located. Other activities involve the theft and sale of Gmix.com, that of several other LLL .com and NNN .com domains, and the previously unreported theft of WFM.com in 2013.

The legitimate owner of BNN.com and Brel.com, Jessica Kung, is in the process of reclaiming these stolen domain assets. The thief showed up at NamePros offering to return the domains. His account has been restricted by the forum’s vigilant moderators.

Attorney John Berryhill contacted broker Mark Daniel of Domain Holdings, as BNN.com was offered for sale there, last week:

I heard from Mark Daniel of Domain Holdings, who was alerted to this thread, but does not have an account at Namepros. Mark was recently approached by someone who claimed to be in the UK and is interested in selling BNN .com. During preliminary discussions and after seeing the questions and information posted here at Namepros, Mark asked this person about the apparent theft, and this person said they would provide Mark with proof of their acquisition of the domain name many years ago. Of course, the domain name was owned until recently by Brel Software, and Mark has not heard back from the purported seller. 

If you are approached to acquire, broker, or otherwise interact with the current registrant of BNN.com and Brel.com, keep in mind these domains are stolen.
