    Welcome to the ProWebmasters community. I don't think there's much you can do about this! – Dakta Moriamé Sep 17 '19 at 3:36

    You have an interesting problem. Are they using the whole address? All the way down to town, state, country, and zip code? If so, I wonder what the payoff would be? Sometimes temporary domain names are used for spam and scamming. These are usually more random. And these generally do not exist too long. A few months to a year at the most. I am racking my brain to think why someone would do this. It makes no sense really. Cheers!! – closetnoc Sep 17 '19 at 3:46
  • You shall contact the registrar and ask it to delete your personnal information. – gael Sep 17 '19 at 6:23
  • Just your address or also your name? If it is with your name, there may be solutions, especially if it is on the registrant part. If it is just your address, probably no solution. How did you come aware of this situation anyway? Did you contact the registrar of those domains, or the registry? You are not even giving the TLD, there are rules and regulations about "false" data. – Patrick Mevzek Sep 18 '19 at 0:00

Submit a WHOIS Inaccuracy Complaint to ICANN for the domain or domains involved. They will forward the complaint to the registrar, who will (hopefully?) address it promptly.

  • That is a start, however, ICANN is not responsible. They can only contact the registrar and since the e-mail isn't correct, a query will be contacted, by which, they would confirm it. Instead, I would explain whats going on by contacting the registrar's abuse department. – drtechno Oct 19 '19 at 16:33
