As seen in previous blog posts, domain thieves sold the stolen domain name of the World Religious Travel Association (ReligiousTravelAssociation.com) in Feb-March 2010....this was 8 months prior to the domain name's natural expiration date.
The new custodians of the stolen domain name, which may have been the original domain thieves themselves, then parked the stolen domain name on Bodis.com, in order to gain potential monies/revenues from the stolen property.
The FBI and law enforcement can investigate the above including any potential monies earned via the stolen property/domain name.

What is “Insider Domain Theft”?
Theft of an organization’s domain name or website by a shareholder, employee, or contractor. Insider domain theft is one of the most common forms of domain theft. The World Religious Travel Association was a victim of insider domain theft.
Enrico Schaefer, trial attorney and Internet law expert: "URL theft by a partner or co-owner is perhaps the most common example of domain name theft. Domain names stolen in this fashion account for about 25% of the calls and emails we receive in the domain theft area."
