Hinckley Police Department. 815-286-7465

I am writing in regards to Jay Yaggie of Strypes Plus More located at 120 S Sycamore St, Hinckley, IL 60520, (630) 585-3908

I have provided internet technical support and services for over 20 years. Mr. Yaggies web-hosting service account was given to me in 2011. Jay paid his bill annually until 2016.

Jay then stopped and when I couldn’t get a response from him,  I suspended his account in hopes of getting his attention and he moved 1 of his 2 website domain names to Wix according to third party monitors.

Domain Name #1
1 Jul, 2008
Domain created*, nameservers added
14 Dec, 2018
4 Jun, 2019
Source https://whoisrequest.com/history/

Domain Name #2
At that time Jay left the domain diamondplatedots.com nameservers set to my network and he did not pay his past due and in turn, stole internet services from me apparently with intent to continue to do so.

My family lost our home btw.

While Jay might not have been using diamondplatedots.com the rest of the world still was. Specifically, hackers trying daily to find web exploits and use the domain name for DDOS attacks, brute force attacks on the mail accounts, etc. affecting the service of my other users and causing damages.

If I was to just stop providing services, which may seem reasonable, my servers would be used in even larger DDOS attacks due to the size of the domain name, thus putting a good weapon in the hands of “anyone in the world” and causing severe network problems for my users and other targeted third parties causing thousands of unstoppable connections per second.

Jay failed to park his domain and it is still using my nameservers and causing unwanted bad traffic which I have had to mitigate daily. I am still providing services I do not want to provide because Jay told me to forget about it and walked away.

Jay did not take responsibility for his intellectual property which is causing damages via third party attacks and Jay has now completely stopped responding since June 22nd of this year after becoming aware of the problem.

I have never charged late fee’s but it looks like this would be around $350 in late fees and whatever for interest and a possible collections fee of $150. His current past due is $1435.20. I have had to spend time related to bad traffic as well, however, this is not documented.

Problem domain name.

As seen here in whois the domain is still pointing to my servers and most importantly Jay has been made aware that there is a problem and with that knowledge, he is allowing the problem to persist.

At this time I would like to know what my options are for prosecution and recovery.
