In a CIRA Dispute Resolution Policy (CDRP) decision published on the last day of 2020, American footwear company “Skechers USA INC.” prevailed in their dispute against the registrant of two domain names – skechers.ca and sketchers.ca.

In August, Skechers was also successful in a CDRP dispute over the domain skecherscanadashoes.ca (decision). Despite the domain being ordered transferred to the complainant, a whois lookup reveals that this has not yet occured – with the individual named in the dispute still appearing as the current registrant.

Worse yet – as of today, the domain still resolves to an ecommerce site selling Skechers footwear.

This website could potentially pass as legitimate to the average online consumer. While in actuality, it could be harvesting credit card or other payment/personal details. Furthermore, if by chance that orders are fulfilled, what may arrive in the mail could be a counterfeit or stolen product.

The official website for Skechers is at www.skechers.com.
