In about 1999 I fired a guy named Geoff for cause. For the next 2 or 3 
years, Geoff occupied his time by finding unrouted netblocks and 
creating shell companies whose name matched their long-gone owners and 
grabbing them. I didn't at the time have any idea who to report it to. I 
think I watched him grab abut 25 netblocks before he stopped. I have no 
idea how he fenced what he stole.
