I was shocked to learn that Rob Monster of Epik.com ‘purchased’ Namepros.com for NOTHING. (He has blocked incoming referrals from this site, so you will have to copy link, if you want.) I am suspicious, rightfully so, and believe there needs to be an investigation into his ‘dealings’. I suspect he is making domain business deals using crypto to skirt paying taxes, FRAUD.
Maybe of insignificant importance, but I read that while trying make a deal with some ‘prominent’ domainer, Rob offered his bank account balance. He was laughed at – $50,000 total. His ability to achieve his ambitions with such means was balked at. But is that all Rob Monster REALLY has to deal with? I suspect not.
First, it is my opinion, though I am sure many will agree, he is EXTREMELY deceptive and manipulative. I read a post, that 12+ (untagged ‘epik’) employees moderate namepros – 12! It’s clear to the keen, it’s his new propaganda machine!
The epik.com registrar has some VERY peculiar dealings. Begin with Epik (and Rob himself) being an advocate of crypto-currency, even accepting it as payments for domains at his registrar.
I suggest that Rob Monster is PERSONALLY and / or BUSINESS PARTNERS buying (worthless) domains though his registrar, Epik.com, using crypto-currency, to launder money and/or for backdoor dealings. With a little digging, we can easily investigate potential conspirators, starting with the .bible registry.
Epik.com charges $39.00 retail per .bible, 1,455 of them equates to $56,745 USD! I confronted Rob on twitter about this some weeks back. Obviously he denied they were his domains, and said they were ‘customers’. I would like to know who those customers are. We can’t however, with WHOIS block, after all…coincidence? Also a coincidence, that within 3 days (~DEC 26, 2019), his nTLD registration count shot up 35%+ …within 3 days:
Take a look at how these new purchases, ~24,000 domains, look at scale…
.TOP costs $44.95 at EPIK, while costing less than $2 at namecheap.com, porkbun.com, and dynadot.com! In other words, somebody(s) blew ~$1 MILLION in just 2 days using epik.com to register .TOP, while they may have spent ~1/25th that at MANY other major registrars; somethings amiss! But wait, WHAT if these are 10 YEAR registrations, meaning $10m+ USD was laundered!?
(UPDATE: 12/29/19) Another big day for .TOP @ epik.com with 1,000s more registered at $44.95 – 60.74 % of the total epik.com nTLD domains now. Millions of $ in registration – are we greasing palms here? What’s the Chinese connection?
We might dig into his dealings; some auxiliary relationship with .BIBLE and .TOP are evident, as shown above – the anomalies are glaring. To whom were these registered, and why? Were they registered via crypto-currency?
Rob bought Namepros.com for $0, but perhaps a CRYPTO transaction too? He now operates it recklessly, biased, and with totally-inept moderation – not to mention all the SHILLING that he, himself condones and participates in. His attitude is consistent that with a psychopathic maniac. I can safely assume that while being so arrogant, he believes he ‘gets away’ with something. These types always think they’re the smartest in the world. If you know him personally, I bet you know what I mean. His boldness will be his undoing in the end…and I wouldn’t put anything past him after having just a few ‘discussions’ with him.
He seems keen on pumping .org – another coincidence? I don’t know, things are starting to look really shady now…
What other ‘assets’ might he have? Who’s domains are these, and why are they registering them in bulk at nose-bleed premiums? Why are these 2 particular nTLDs listed at such a premium at epik.com, while others are more reasonably priced to sell legitimately, even a small discount?
Is Rob Monster, newest owner of namepros.com and founder of epik.com registering these domains under some ‘dealings with friends’ or even under these ‘shell’ registries, perhaps with a proxy (that’s how you’d do it!)? Is someone prepared, perhaps, to renew these domains year-after-year while under the feigned-posture of being a ‘loony’ bible-thumping, .TOP loving investor?
Perhaps now, a PALM GREASING to promote the 4L+ ‘chip’ and ‘numeric’ propaganda put forth @namepros via @robmonster under MULTIPLE shill accounts + the ‘pro’ army? Chinese HEDGE FUND manipulation – the payment now, for ‘dirty deeds’, $2.5m+ via .TOP (60k+ $44.95 each?).
Now that the forum has been ‘given’ to Rob Monster, his registrar, Epik.com entrenched – they took this opportunity to ‘wrap up’?
Maybe though, it’s just a case of ‘innocent’ registrar stuffing by him, to inflate his registration numbers with cheap domains. Though, that would go against his narrative @namepros, which is that there are no special deals for any single entity, if one person ‘gets the deal’, he offers it to everyone else too…
We know he isn’t a domainer, his domains are bad…really bad! Did you see his NEWEST list? Is that suppose to be some kind of joke? Guy has a ‘pro’ tag, but I don’t think he’s making a killing with legitimate domaining by the looks of things! Isn’t it also “shady”, a few weeks back, his adamant promotion of .org, while .org was going though everything that it was/is?
Without getting more into the actual character of Rob Monster myself, these are the cold hard facts, which deserve closer examination. I believe we can work together to uncover more of the anomalies, which is why I am opening comments for the first time on this site!
Let’s uncover this suspected fraud, manipulator and deceiver. Let’s find out: WHO his friends are, and more about of these 3 overtly ‘peculiar’ transactions.
