Force Buy Domains / Website scam

1 United States Review updated:

"The OFT received complaints that Swansea-based Internet Registrations Bureau Limited, trading as Euro Web Designs, was contacting firms and claiming an unnamed third party was interested in registering a domain name similar to their business name.
IRBL helpfully offered to secure the domain name but told companies that they only had a limited period of time to do so before it would be offered to the third party.
The OFT asked IRBL to provide evidence that these third parties existed but the company was unable to do so."
