    Strange WhoIs on this. The name was just registered on Oct 21, 2003, but it looks like it belongs to the registrar?

    Also, the website says "copyright2001-2003 soft777.com" yet the name, again, was just registered Oct 21, 2003.

    Vd752, it looks like your first step here is to contact the registrar/host and tell them this site has been stolen from you. If they don't pull the site down ASAP, then you'll have to go over their heads (someone else will have to tell you how to do that).

    Usually, just a letter does the trick.

    I would leave it like it is, since they are using your aff tags. Hope they make you a lot of money. I wish someone would steal my site and use my aff tags.

    I agree...

    I think I would prepare the letter....

    and keep an eye on the site....as soon as you see the affiliate tags changed jump on them...

    But then again....I would consider talking to their host anyway....I really don't like theives...and this case is pretty blatant

    I think is not a problem.
    They don't have my traffic and...
    there index.html contain
    <meta name="copyright" content="BonusRating, 2003. All rights reserved.">

    The problem is in my site - I need a new profesional design

    Vd752:>>> I`m not offering you my service (i would`t even open my HTTP editor for 500$ ). There are many design companies offering a good and cheap service.
