Total Fraud reports received this quarter = 34

Investigation Results

ARIN received a total of 34 fraud reports during the 3rd quarter of 2011.   There were three reports of potential fraud related to IP number resources registered in the ARIN database. ARIN has researched all of these reports and taken action where appropriate.  The summary of those three reports and actions taken are contained in the table above. 

Thirty-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.
