A cautionary tale about stolen domain names.
Buying a stolen domain name can lead to a heap of legal trouble, not to mention losing a lot of money. In this episode, I chat with domain investor Josh Reason about a stolen domain name he almost bought. He explains the due diligence that raised several red flags and how he confirmed the domain was stolen. Fortunately, the story has a happy ending.
