Dans le genre 100% connerie pure, qu'est ce qu'on ne fait pas aujourdhui.

CENTREVILLE, Va., May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Registry for 
Internet Numbers, Ltd. (ARIN) defeated an elaborate multi-year scheme to 
defraud the Internet community of approximately 735,000 IPv4 addresses, has 
successfully required the return of all the addresses, and stopped the 
defrauding party from continuing their scheme. The emergent IPv4 address 
transfer market and increasing demand have resulted in more attempts to 
fraudulently obtain IPv4 addresses from ARIN, the nonprofit member-based 
organization responsible for distributing Internet number resources in the US, 
Canada, and parts of the Caribbean.

"Fraud will not be tolerated. The vast majority of organizations obtain their 
address space from ARIN in good faith according to the policies set out by the 
community. However, ARIN detected fraud as a result of internal due diligence 
processes, and took action to respond in this particularly egregious case," 
said John Curran, ARIN President and CEO. "We are stepping up our efforts to 
actively investigate suspected cases of fraud against ARIN and will revoke 
resources and report unlawful activity to law enforcement whenever appropriate."

In the first arbitration ever brought under an ARIN Registration Services 
Agreement, and related proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern 
District of Virginia, ARIN was able to prove an intricate scheme to 
fraudulently obtain resources had occurred which included many falsely 
notarized officer attestations sent to ARIN. A company in South Carolina 
obtained and utilized 11 shelf companies across the United States, and 
intentionally created false aliases purporting to be officers of those 
companies, to induce ARIN into issuing the fraudulently sought IPv4 resources 
and approving related transfers and reassignments of these addresses. The 
defrauding party was monetizing the assets obtained in the transfer market, and 
obtained resources under ARIN's waiting list process. On May 1, 2019, ARIN 
obtained a final and very favorable arbitration award which included revocation 
of all resources issued pursuant to fraud and $350,000 to ARIN for its legal 

ARIN will continue to carefully review all requests for resources and address 
transfers. ARIN takes the responsibility of protecting the community's number 
resources and upholding community-developed policy very seriously.
