Oh ... Really?

Hello Experian!

For the last few weeks, I have been getting calls from 1-866-660-6940. The calls come at all times of the day, but they never leave a message. I finally got fed up and called them back. It is Experian ... the credit report people. They said they were calling to make sure their information on my business, LissaKay Co, was correct, I'm sure for the purpose of selling me credit monitoring service or some shit like that. Friggin idiots ... that is my DOMAIN name! The only place you could have obtained that information is from the WHOIS database. Guess what, Experian? You are in violation of the terms of service of the whois.net domain look up service.

The data in this whois database is provided to you for information purposes only, that is, to assist you in obtaining information about or related to a domain name registration record.

By submitting a whois query, you agree that you will use this data only for lawful purposes and that, under no circumstances will you use this data to: (1) enable high volume, automated, electronic processes that stress or load this whois database system providing you this information; or (2) allow, enable, or otherwise support the transmission of mass unsolicited, commercial advertising or solicitations via direct mail, electronic

The compilation, repackaging, dissemination or other use of this data is expressly prohibited without prior written consent from us. The registrar of record is eNom. We reserve the right to modify these terms at any time. By submitting this query, you agree to abide by these terms.

I will be contacting the BBB and the folks at Whois ... and changing my domain registration information.

Asshats ...
