Warning: Tilt.com is currently a stolen #domain name

The domain name Tilt.com has been stolen from its legitimate owners, and is currently in the possession of the Greenberg & Lieberman law firm.

The thief appears to be from Montenegro; the sale to domain investor, James Booth, was halted once information emerged about the status of Tilt.com. James delivered the domain to Greenberg & Lieberman as a neutral keeper, until it’s returned to its legitimate owners.

How was Tilt.com, a former asset of Crowdtilt, stolen?

Apparently, the thief actually paid $17,000 dollars to acquire Crowdtilt.com on Afternic. That domain controlled Tilt.com via the email address tech@crowdtilt.com.

It’s a known method of domain hijacking that cybercriminals use in order to take over valuable domain names.

We will update this post with new details as they become available.

    This was one of the ‘classic’ ways that domain thieves steal domain names. I’ve seen it over and over again, when someone has an email address attached to another domain and they don’t renew the domain with that email address. I’m surprised that the the UDRP was decided the way it was.
