Criminals seem to now have a place to go to engage in fraudulent activities. That is GoDaddy. Simply register fictitious contact information that cannot be traced by law enforcement. The criminal is then free to pursue various fraudulent activities and internet scams.
Counter Culture Radio has uncovered such registrations with telephone numbers that do not work, and which contain apparent false addresses with overseas telephone numbers unrelated to apparent fictitious addresses. Is Godaddy.com colluding with such organizations? Is that why GoDaddy continues to refuse to redress such false WHOis information?
Registrars like GoDaddy operate without accountability. Complain to ICANN, and they do nothing but propose a very costly so-called “arbitration” or court process.
Do registrars like GoDaddy require more government oversight in order to help protection the public interest from apparent criminal colluions.
GoDaddy in at least one case, allowed Genesmedia to register domains with fictitious Canadian addresses and telephone contact information. Genesmedia was paid to register domains by a not-for-profit organization, and then rather than doing so, Genesmedia registered these internet domains under his own company name with fictitous contact info.
When presented with evidence of such fraud, GoDaddy has apparently sought to shelter the fraudulent activities of Genesmedia, suggesting collusion. It is apparent that GoDaddy’s actions has brought its integrity as an ethical internet registrar question, and into disrepute.
