Investigation Results

ARIN received a total of12 fraud reports during the 2nd quarter of 2011.   All 12 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.

Additionally, ARIN was able to take follow up action on 5 fraud reports from previous submissions involving abandoned number resources.  Below is a brief report on the follow up actions taken.
