Investigation Results

There were a total of 29 fraud reports received during the fouth quarter of 2010.¬† Twenty-one of the fraud reports received during this quarter were reports of incidents related to phishing, spam, identity theft, stalking/harassment, etc. 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.

There were eight reports of potential fraud that ARIN was able to research and take action on.  The summary of those eight reports and actions taken are contained in the table above.
