Domain thieves can be dejected former employees.

The former manager of Ghost Ranch, a dining and entertainment venue in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, faces felony charges after hijacking domains owned by her former employer.

According to the Steamboat Springs publication, Steamboat Today, Donna “Tonie” Roberts was charged with “theft, computer crime and felony criminal impersonation”.

Roberts posted a $2,000 dollar bail and was released.

The investigation revealed that Roberts – who was terminated seven months ago from the Ghost Ranch – managed to take control of the domains, that were registered at GoDaddy and deactivated them. In the process, the web site was disabled and all corporate email was down.

When an employee of Ghost Ranch contacted GoDaddy on the matter, Donna Roberts reset the account password; when GoDaddy tech support attempted to reset it again, Roberts had initiated a transfer of the domains to another account.
