That's a link to the Whois help page, will link you to other help sites in other world regions. (If you haven't gone to whois already.)
MSNBC runs quite frequently a 2 hour documentary called "To catch an ID thief." It's about the scam ring that operates out of either Nigeria or Kenya. These folks run all kinds of scam (one individual was caught on tape trying to run several different kinds.)
One thing that is very common are chat room sites where credit card and identity info are auctioned off internationally. Can take less than a minute. Some identity purchasers will then make thousands of dollars' worth of purchases from on-line merchants, many of whom are quite innocent. They will often use straw men and women, innocent dupes who believe they are engaged to marry some fictitious person from overseas. These dupes will accept delivery of packages, which are then picked up by third parties, or will forward them, usually to an address in Africa. Their fake fiancees and fiances will often hit them up for all kinds of money, too.
These folks are dangerous. Go to the FBI. Keep track of any odd packages that are delivered to your door. Remember that mayor on the East Coast of the U.S. whose dog was shot, even tho local law enforcement knew that his family was completely innocent. They even had his 60ish mother-in-law tied up for over an hour because she protested when the cops burst into the house and shot the very friendly golden retriever.
I am not saying this to be alarmist. You should be careful to protect yourself by going to the credit reporting agencies. Because of the economic downturn, already understaffed white collar crime investigators in local, state, and national law enforcement cannot do much except give you informational handouts. Give them what info you have, file a complaint, and keep them posted. File an application for victim's assistance. You may be able to get some money back. And have you cancelled your cards yet? If you haven't, you will be liable for a LOT of money.
Good luck. I have been physically robbed, twice violently, and fortunately, I did not have much of a credit line, so I have never seen any evidence of identity theft. Contact the post office and the social security, everyone you can think of. And prepare for the next time.
Read up on the Sinowal malware designers, while you're at it. You will need to protect the info on your computer and at your banking institutions. They also steal credit card info from on-line vendors.
Take care. I didn't mean to be such a downer, but identity thieves seem to be increasing in number during these tough economic times.
