Why has my domain name (ThurstonMillwork.com) been transferred to ztomy ztomy.com?

Why has my domain name (ThurstonMillwork.com) been transferred to ztomy ztomy.com? Who is ztomy?

According to this thread I'm not the only one - in fact there are thousands of people just like me who have websites that are down - and they have been down for weeks! We are trying to get our website back up.


We are loosing thousands of dollars in holiday sales and it is SBC/ATT/Yahoo's fault.

Our domain is no longer in our control and according to your control panel it has been cancelled however according to my records and whois the domain name is still in my name and does not expire until 12/2014. SBC/Yahoo is still listed as the tech contact.

I need to regain control of my business and get away from you guys. Please email my EPP transfer code to me immediately.



Here's a list of nearly 5,000 domains transferred out of Yahoo to ztomy on 12/1/2013 which is the day that domaintools says ThurstonMillwork.com was transferred out.


Unfortunately Ztomy has no control panel or admin - and the ATT control panel says:

Our records indicate that you do not own the requested domain name: thurstonmillwork.com.

This domain may have been cancelled.

If you have questions about this domain, please contact us.

This is beyond our account being compromised, it's more like ATT/Yahoo/SBC has been compromised. All these domains are just showing ad spam now.

Here are more domains - and the list is growing by the day: (started arly November - w/ big spikes in transfers to ztomy mid-late November)

    Based on the links you shared and the high number of domains that have been transferred out of Yahoo, that have also been transferred back. It seems that Yahoo has been compromised. Based on the number of days and weeks that this has been happening, it looks like every time they think they have a handle on it, it gets away from them again. The other odd thing is that in looking at this issue, several people received a credit for their services in the months before the transfer. It doesn't make sense but it appears to be a thorn in the side for old and long time Yahoo/ATT/SBC customers.
