Several valuable domains reportedly stolen from Moniker accounts

Domain names are getting stolen more often than what you think.

Several high profile domains were stolen at Moniker.

Following on the heels of a recent password reset at Moniker, comes the apparent theft of domains from Moniker accounts.

We were contacted by a party that wants to remain anonymous at this point, involving the theft of several valuable domains that they own; these are numerical and LLL .coms.

After some research, it’s evident that others have been affected as well; the domain thieves moved domains out of the Moniker account of domain investor Elequa, founder of Future Media Architects (FMA).

The theft appears to have occurred between September 23rd and October 3rd; it involves at least three high profile domains that we could identify: Busy.com,  WAT.com, and BMT.com.

Not surprisingly, Elequa moved as many as 100,000 domains to Uniregistry, away from other registrars, including Moniker, just a couple of days after the theft occurred.

Could this mass exodus be related to the domain theft?

If you want to report your domains stolen, here are some guidelines in order to achieve media coverage about the incident.

    Porn.com was one of the first domains hijacked at moniker as previously reported.

    FX – That incident has nothing to do with this batch of thefts.

  3. As far as I see all three domains you mentioned are registered to a “Tina Liao” based in California … the only one that has a different registrant organization is BMT.com, which also shows a “Craig Parker” based in UK.
    Same email for all three: domain_id@yahoo.com.
    Busy.com still looks held at Moniker, while the other two now are at CSL COMPUTER SERVICE LANGENBACH GMBH D/B/A JOKER.COM .

    Andrea – The contact info is bogus; the email is all that matters 😉

    Let’s put some pressure on those thieves 😉
