    Thumbs down Namecheap supports spammers

    Namecheap seems to be involved with a lot of organized crime groups. I get a ton of YIM SPIM from domains run by namecheap, and not matter how many invalid WHOIS data reports I file, namecheap refuses to take action against all the spammers.

    Also it seems that namecheap is in the business of spamming themselves.

    Today I got this YIM SPIM.

    http://gu%61ra%6e%74e%65dadul%74d%61%74i%6e%67%2ecom forwards to
    guaranteedadultdating.com which is a scam site administered by richard@expertcreations.com, which according to Richard Kirkendall above, expertcreations.com is owned by namecheap, so namecheap and Mr. Kirkendall seem to involved in an ongoing criminal enterprise that is hacking yahoo servers and sending out spam.

    Before doing biz with namecheap, you should also check out their rating with the better business bureau.

    I've sent namecheap numerous direct emails, ICANN whois reports, and support tickets, and namecheap is a spam friendly blackhat name register.

    Let me just try and understand you arguments as I read through all of your previous WHT posts, like at http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=584687, have made wildly scathing accusations of other companies being in bed with spammers.

    Your comments suggestiong we're an "ongoing criminal enterprise that is hacking Yahoo servers and sending out spam" is laughable. Do you have any idea of what you are talking about? What you have said is bordering on libel so I suggest you retract your outrageous statements.

    As you will know if you actually have been in touch with our abuse department, any abuse ticket/email sent in will produce a ticket ID that we can reference and pull up the history. You are very welcome to send me that ticket ID via either email/PM if you wish to validate your claims. Otherwise you continue to make yourself look foolish by posting such outrageous allegations on a message board like this.

    Of course it would be ideal to never have that transfer problem in the first place. But sh*t happens, so as long as the problem can be solved, it would be desireble that it was solved quickly on first support contact.

    But I'm glad to have Rick here, and that the problem was solved.

    I'm new on namecheap with only 1 domain yet, and seeing how he dealt with this scary transfer problem here, it gave them another positive point with me

    ---------------------
    Hello ______

    This message is in follow-up to the Whois Data Problem Report you submitted on April 01, 2008 regarding xxxeroticpersonals.com. As indicated to you at the time of submission, a copy of your report was forwarded to the sponsoring registrar for investigation.


    I reported to ICANN that the whois is STILL inaccurate. So I'll make NC a deal, HC gets their whois data current, I'll leave NC alone, retract my posts, and I'll go take the spam problem up directly with NC's clients once NC does its duty and gets the true and accurate contact info as registered by your accreditation with ICANN.

    I've reported this and many others to namecheap thru proper ICANN channels at
    http://wdprs.internic.net/
    that are registered to the same fake address.

    onenitehookups.com - reported 4/14/08
    xxxeroticpersonals.com - reported 4/1/08
    and many more.

    I'm sure if you search, you find a lot more domains registered to

    Why don't have you lawyers contact "Chuck Smith" and tell him to stop using your services to engage in violations of federal and state criminal and civil codes that make your firm look like your are a spammer support service.

    Since I'm sure "Mr. Smith" is paying NC, NC probably has some real contact info for "Mr. Smith". Unlike myself and thousands of other victims of his spamming and harassment (getting 10 to 20 porn SPIMs a day is not advertising, its harassment).

    Maybe you can explain this to the studio audience...

    Yesterday I was SPIM SPAMED with a ad for the domain
    guaranteedadultdating.com
    Yesterday, guaranteedadultdating.com was registered to:

    Registration Service Provided By: NameCheap.com

    Now in regards to the contact email
    richard@e**cre**ons.com.com did you just say a few posts above that e**cre**ons.com.com is owned by Namecheap?

    Isn't that strange... You are Richard, and the spammer domain was originally registered with admin email of richard@e**cre**ons.com.com.

    You claim that e**cre**ons.com.com is owned by Namecheap in a previous post.

    Now I realize Richard is a common name, how many Richard's work for namecheap?

    And why did the registration of the domain change to a fake address in Las Vegas after I posted about it here?

    If you google guaranteedadultdating.com since this domain was created, it has been spammed all over the net using bot's in a campaign of false and deceptive advertising and unethical business practices such as blog spamming, guestbook spamming, etc.

    When the domains were registered the account was placed on hold for a fraud check and during that time the domains were moved to our holding account. After the account was re-opened the domains were pushed back and the whois info not updated.

    You sir are going to have bigger things to worry about than being an internet vigilante. This thread has already been forwarded to my attorney. You will not be getting away with making these comments about our company.

    DevilWolf,

    At the end of the day, eNom is the Registrar per WHOIS, Why not just complain to them:

    Registrar: ENOM, INC.

    For complaints : http://www.enom.com/help/abusepolicy.aspx

    That way you leave it to the Registrar to sort out, Richard at NC doesn't get the hump, and you should receive a resolution to your problem.

    Anyone can update their contact information at any time. Whatever they did during the fraud check obviously passed.

    I also checked our help desk for any tickets involving the above mentioned domains and there were none as you have claimed.

    Regardless, this has nothing to do with spam, you made pretty harmful accusations and statements against our company and myself. You can explain the rest in court and to your attorney.

    I have been working with Demand Media (eNOM's owners) in regards to this. But yesterday the spammer was a little too quick on the gun, and started spamming before Richard had a chance to remove his email from the domain.

    Did a search, and that lead me back here.

    Devilwolf I agree we must fight spam hardly, but aren't you attacking the wrong person?

    IMO the worst ppl are the ISPs that let spammers spam freely, because today with spamhaus it is pratically impossible to spam from dynamic IP and/or without ISP help.

    I myself don't think its healthy that registrars take action against spam, because domains are very important to us and little important to spammers, maybe somehow important to companies that pay for spammers to spam their products.

    So, IMHO, you should fight spam attacking hosts, ISPs and companies that profit from spam, report spam to SpamCop, etc.

    If registrars start taking action against spam, faithless ppl can fraud spam on our name and spoof registrars making them think we are spammers, so that they give our domains to complainer. That's very risky, and I'd not register my domains on a registrar that take ppl's domains on first spam complain.

    Why don't you buy MailWasher to deal with your spam, report it to SpamCop and send bounce to the spammer think that your email is invalid? Using MailWasher all this is easy and fast to do and spam makes very little harm to you.

    Just my opinion

    Wow....you just opened yourself up to a big lawsuit by doing what you have done. Just bad form to make such accusations without definitive evidence.

    ICANN rules state that registers have to get and maintain accurate WHOIS info. If they are advised that the info is NOT accurate, they have to contact the client to get accurate info.

    I'm not asking NC or ENOM or Moniker to take action against the domain JUST for spamming, but for spamming AND having fake whois info (or allowing a spammer to hide behind a whoisguard).

    If guaranteedadultdating.com was registered with a legit address, I would not bother NC, I would just contact the Attorney General for the state where guaranteedadultdating.com is located and file a variety of civil and criminal complaints against them directly at the state and federal level.

    ICANN rules do say that domains have to be registered with accurate and current contact info. Also Namecheap's TOS says the same

    6. Account Information and Its Use.

    a. Information You Are Required to Submit. As part of the registration process, you are required to provide certain information and to update this information promptly as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. The information you are obligated to provide in connection with the domain name you are registering is the following:


    See those parts in BOLD????

    Its doesn't say "you may provide us with fake contact so that angry consumers can't contact you"
