Alert!! Some Of The Domains You Got At May Not Be Owned By You

Posted on the 27 December 2012 by Worldwide @thedomains

If you use you need to check the domain names you acquired since October, especially November and December.

You may not be the owner of the domain.

There are a few issues going on with which I was first informed about by another large domainer yesterday who asked to remain anonymous.

He reported that 10 domains that he got through in November and December were not owned by him.

I checked my account since October and found a total of 7 domains that we got through and paid for that are not currently showing my company Worldwide Media, Inc. as the owner.

These domain names were also caught through, but have a completely different owner.

In two cases in Hawaii, which seems to be another domainer, is the listed owner of the domain names, including, which we just won at auction on December 13th for $775.

The third issue is that one some of the domain names, the former owner of the domain is still showing as the owner of the domain.

At least one of the domains at issue,, a domain I  won a auction for back on October 16th for $184 according to seems to have been owned by the same company since December 2011, Synergy Solutions, of Athens, AL.  Again according to the domain was never expired, in redemption or pending delete, yet I acquired it and paid for it in October.…
