Wow, what kind of crap is this? These guys dedicate their time and expertise for basically free and this prick goes and basically fraudulently makes deals and now they lose their dot.com and google business account. I hope that somehow they get to sue the pants off this jerk and get their stuff back. Wow, the audacity of some people is incredible and disgusting.

Wow...what a lowlife crook. He should put in an application for employment with one of the carriers, he'd fit right in.

Links to .com on forum posts if any will be lost. Bad to see this happen and not sure if getting through ICANN will be that easy as that also would involve legal experts (who would be expensive unless they deicde to work free) and process is long drawn.
