Total Fraud reports received this quarter = 78

INVESTIGATION RESULTS

ARIN received a total of seventy-eight fraud reports during the 1st quarter of 2014. Two reports contained information about invalid ARIN Whois information, which ARIN is researching.  In the meantime, ARIN has marked these records as "stale data" in Whois.

Six reports focused on fraudulent IP justification information, with all reports stating that an upstream provider was providing falsified customer justification data in order to obtain IPv4 address space from ARIN.  ARIN is investigating all of these reports and doing an audit of these organization's accounts.  Until we complete our investigation/audit, we will not be issuing IP address space to any of these organizations.

One was a report of out of region use of ARIN issued IPv4 address space.  We verified that this organization was issued address space consistent with ARIN policy and procedure.

Sixty-nine fraud reports received during this quarter were reports of incidents related to phishing, spam, identity theft, etc. More than half of these reports were submitted by the same person.  ARIN did not investigate any of these reports, because they are outside the scope of ARIN's mission.  ARIN's response to each of these reports was to notify the reporter that the fraud reporting process is restricted to matters specifically related to ARIN's mission and area of authority such as false utilization reporting, number resource hijacking in ARIN's database, and other activity involving fraudulent submissions to ARIN or fraudulent changes to data in ARIN's Whois. In each of these report responses, ARIN staff provides additional useful information, including information on querying Whois, contact information for the network operator associated with a given IP address, etc. No further action was taken.
