As WRTA and I are victims of domain name theft (and email theft), I've learned and experienced firsthand the devastating consequences that these types of criminal actions can bring upon businesses and individuals.
If such criminal actions go unpunished and uninterrupted, the devastating consequences can include among other things the bankruptcy of businesses and individuals.
Domain name theft is a serious crime and needs to be stopped wherever and whenever its exists in society, businesses and elsewhere.
To assist in such efforts of stopping domain name theft, publicizing its devastating nature/effects, and holding these types of cybercriminals accountable, I created and debuted this past July 22 (anniversary date of Daniel Goncalves case/conviction) the following website:
If you're a victim of domain name theft like WRTA, the above website can serve as an additional resource for you as it provides information and resources on topics such as:
+ How and where to report domain name theft (in addition to your local police department)
+ State and federal computer crime laws
+ Cybercrime units and task forces in the U.S.
+ Resource organizations in relation to computer crime
+ Reports and statistics on computer crime
+ Various articles and stories on current and past domain name theft cases
As a victim of domain name theft, I've learned the most important thing of all - take action.
