ICANN seems to be a joke. My identity has been stolen by BIZCN domain registrar (or their customer(s)), who is accredited by ICANN. Someone at BIZCN has registered over 50 to 70 domain names (or more) using my name and my address, but they used their own email address and my old (not working) phone/fax number and everyone knows why they do it (so I don't get contacted too soon). If you take a look at for instance at the following domain and website: www.swissandluxury.com , it's not only registered in my name, but it is a live website selling watches and I am sure it is as fraudulent as hell. My numerous attempts to call , email and fax ICANN ended up in a wall of silence and complete ignorance by ICANN. More, ICANN's forms online to report bad registrars and fraudulent domain registrations does no work and sends me annoying and unbelievable form refusals for all domains I tried to report repeatedly many times wasting days and weeks of my time. My numerous attempts to reach BIZCN ended up in "Jimmy" from BIZCN responding (after numerous no-responses) and promising changes, yet he did very little and I noticed only a handful of domains at the Whois replaced my address with (I am sure) another stolen address/identity. BIZCN is a criminal fraud accredited by ICANN! Then who are ICANN if they accredit criminal domain registrars?

Here's a by far incomplete list of domain names that bear or used to bear my name and my mailing address and my old outdated fax number that was sent to "Jimmy" at BIZCN as a request to remove my name, address and telephone from those domain records many months ago:

(almost faeces book)

Now wait! That's one of the domain names which's true owner (hidden behind my stolen identity)
is a criminal at BIZCN or is a customer of the BIZCN registrar (accredited by ICANN).

So, I CANN or I CANN'T? Umbilican or umbilicut?

I call for Action - DUMP ALL YOUR UNNECESSARY and even not so necessary DOMAINS! Umbilicut on all fronts! Now.
