    Not pasting, since it'd be a wall of text, but basically:

    a) major investor who makes millions from domain investing gets a domain stolen

    b) thief hacks into the major investor's AOL email account:mamoru: and transfers the domain to his own account:ugh:

    c) thief paypals $900 to the investor to make it seem like he bought the domain legit, also leaves extra paper trail to get owned with :rofl:

    d) thief sells the domain on eBay for $111K to an NBA player who is a domain investor :rofl:

    e) The investor sues the guy in civil court, and also files criminal charges in 2 states. Florida drops the criminal charges:ugh2: but NJ decides to pursue :bigthumb:

    So there can be a precedent set to allow domains to get stolen?

    No thanks, regardless of the use of the domain with the original owner...it's his and I hope he gets it back.

    I doubt he actually "hacked" his AOL account.

    Most likely reverse engineered the forgot password feature just like they did with Palin's email.

    Fail on both parts.
