The registrant claims to be Charles Lindbergh
Domain Name.......... onlinequalitypills.com Creation Date........ 2007-07-06 21:18:11 Registration Date.... 2007-07-06 21:18:11 Expiry Date.......... 2008-07-06 21:18:11 Organisation Name.... Charles Lindbergh Organisation Address. 62 Rue Miollis Room 346 Organisation Address. Organisation Address. Paris Organisation Address. 750150 Organisation Address. WG Organisation Address. FR
This address is false in many ways.
To begin with, postal codes in Paris begin with 75(0) and end with the number of the "arrondissement". In the case of rue Miollis, that would be the 15th arrondissement. Therefore, the real postal code is 75015 and not 750150, which is invalid.
This being said, even if the postal code was correct, Mr. Charles Lindbergh would be difficult to find, as rue Miollis only has 40 addresses - there is no 62 rue Miollis.
The street ends at a T intersection with the last two addresses being a corner bistro (see photo) and a catholic medical center watched over by over-worked elderly women.
Looking at any low-detailed map of Paris, like one sees online or in a tourist map, one sees a cross or a hospital icon at the end of rue Miollis. This would therefore give the impression that there really is "Reliable Pharmacy" at this location.
In reality the medical center is a small facility called the "Centre Médico Social Soeurs Saint Vincent de Paul" (phone +33.(0)18.104.22.168.49) that treats people of the lower income bracket, which is at a different address. I spoke with a receptionist and a nun/nurse concerning this case, and they were upset to see that one might mistake their facility for one that sells medication. Both persons confirm (with some amusement) that there is no building at 62 rue Miollis, and that no Charles Lindbergh is associated with their facility at 40 rue Miollis, and that they most certainly do not sell medication.
At the other end of the short street, there is one notable building: the UNESCO headquarters. Given that there are many floors in the building, and the international nature of the name "Room 346" within a French address, it is likely that the false whois information was originally based on a UNESCO address. The fake address for the registrant was therefore created by taking UNESCO's address, changing the street number, adding a 0 to the postal code. The use of a famous person's name as the registrant is an old technique used by spammers to make online searches by name more difficult.
Any registrar that continues to sponsor domains of this registrant data is in clear violation of their contract with the registries and their ICANN accreditation.
