Total Fraud reports received this quarter = 146

INVESTIGATION RESULTS

ARIN received a total of one hundred forty-six fraud reports during the 3rd quarter of 2014.

One report contained information about invalid ARIN Whois information. Staff is still researching this report and attempting to contact the POC to get updated information.

The other two reports focused on fraudulent IP justification information and out of region use, with both reports stating that an upstream ISP was providing falsified customer justification data in order to obtain IPv4 address space from ARIN.  ARIN is investigating these reports and doing an audit of these organization's accounts.

One hundred forty-three fraud reports received during this quarter were reports of incidents related to phishing, spam, identity theft, 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.
