After we reported Jesse Nickles to ICANN, ICANN replied… Absolutely irresponsible answer!!
Thank you for contacting ICANN Global Support. I am sorry to hear of your experience with fraud.
ICANN is responsible for coordinating the Domain Name System (DNS) to ensure that domain names map to the correct IP addresses. ICANN does not control Internet content, would not be able to take down websites or have authority to investigate illegal activities.
If you have encountered abusive behavior (e.g. phishing/ scam/ fraudulent activities) or content issue on a website/domain name, you may consider reporting the abuse/issue to the following:
