French domain name information website Domaines.info are running a story claiming that close to a milion Dot Infos were registered last week and that a lot of those are attributable to eNom. The Domaines.info story suggests that many of the new .info domains were registered using the Whois information of existing .com registrations.

In other words, Enom is fraudulently representing that unwilling third parties have entered into contracts to which those third parties have not agreed.

Fascinating.
