Beware of “cyber-squatting”- a form of corporate identity theft
(WIVB) – Cybercriminals have come up with yet another way to rip consumers off.
It’s a form of corporate identity theft called cyber-squatting.
Dr. Roger Firestien, an Amherst resident, teaches at Buffalo State College.
He’s also a consultant and an author, so he has a presence on the internet that’s hard to miss.
Firestien’s experience with “cyber-squatting” centers on a little toy tractor.
Coming from a farm factory, Firestien thought it would be fun to set up a corporation called Green Tractor, LLC, and as an author, he formed Green Tractor Publishing.
Last month, that fun faded quickly with a voicemail message.
