RE: Fraud
This IS AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT against 1and1.com

PLEASE FILE THIS SO THAT I CAN PROTECT OWNDERSHIP OF ENUF.ORG FROM AN
ILLEGAL DOMAIN NAME GRAB BY 1AND1.COM.

On May 2, 2007, I contacted 1and1.com via their phone number, 1-877-461-2631, and talked to their representative whom informed me that I as the owner of www.enuf.org owed 1and1.com $49.85. The Rep stated that I pay that amount as shown by their collection agency and enuf.org would be freed by them so that I could register it again.

The Rep transferred me to NCO Financial (888-300-9085 or 800-709-8625) where I talked with
Tona and was informed that the amount was $24.94+$5.00 1and1 fine = $29.94. I paid this fee and recieved the confirmation number 010628, and was told to contact 1and1.com, give them 010628 and retrieve ownership of my domain name enuf.org. I did so immediately, was told by 1and1.com Rep that I owned the account, to give it 24 hours before I register enuf.org with another registrar.

On May 3, 2007, I contacted yahoo.com and registered www.enuf.org for two years through their registration process.

On May 4, 2007, I checked on www.enuf.org and got the "You tried to access the address http://www.enuf.org/, which is currently unavailable." Then I did the whois lookup and discovered that enuf.org is still held by Sponsoring Registrar:Schlund+Partner AG (R73-LROR), Status:PENDING DELETE RESTORABLE, Status:HOLD.

I contacted 1and1.com immediately to figure out why they continually tell me different stories when all I want to do is resolve this problem. I spent fifteen minutes with a Brett, #2486, and was told that 1and1.com owns enuf.org paper in that it's in hold. More jumble that pertains only to 1and1.com legalese that I can't make sense of, except they it is their intention to confuse their customer. Brett informed me that to get my enuf.org account back, I would have to file a "redemption form" with them and and pay $40.00. At that point I demanded to talk to a supervisor and Brett transferred me
to Benjamin. Supervisor Benjamin informed me that the domain name enuf.org was deleted and there was nothing they or I could to resolve it.

NOTHING THEY (1and1.com) OR I COULD DO RESOLVE IT.

Supervisor Benjamin continued and stated that after 30 days from the date of HOLD, which was 4/4/07, enuf.org would be free to whomever wants it. Then Supervisor Benjamin added that after the 30 day period, there was a 5 day grace period in which the account was not available to anyone, pending tranfers to ICANN.

At this point, I don't know whether 1and1.com plans to continue to confuse me on resolving this issue.

This IS AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT. PLEASE FILE THIS SO THAT I CAN PROTECT OWNDERSHIP OF ENUF.ORG FROM AN ILLEGAL DOMAIN NAME GRAB BY 1AND1.COM.
