On a few separate occasions I have lost prominent domains to the scourge known as cyber-squatters. They've even snatched up a domain within 5 minutes of checking availability.
One domain in particular is my business DBA name. I looked to register it a couple of years ago and it was available, and within a few days it was magically taken by an Arabian person claiming to live in Kansas.
The site's an obvious parked domain, showing ads to try and rake in profit off of my company's name. Here's the kicker though...
The domain 'claims' to have been registered in 2003. Bullhockey. It was available in 2011, and no record existed. How are they able to lie about the date registered to ICANN?
