    And paid with Prepaid Credit Card. Now they want documents about my ID. Is that normal? I´ve found some tutorials about PBNs and that you should use a fake ID to register expired domains. What should I do now to not lose my Domain and account?

    Well you should never use credit cards when using fake info. Always use Paypal and you will be perfectly fine. At this point, well, no idea. Try to edit the credentials and send them your regular ID, then purchase the Whois privacy for the domain and transfer the domain out of the Godaddy as soon as you are able to due to lock.

    That's what I would do.

    Just rechecked, sorry, I paid with PayPal. Man I put already a lot of work into that domain, wrote an 1k words article with very high quality since I wanted to rank with that domain.

    Interesting. I personally, nor any of my clients, had this problem with fake info. Try to use proxies next time, separate cleaned browsers and so on.

    I am from Germany but I would never have thought that GoDaddy will check the IP adress. Well, I guess I have to contact them and show my ID. I thought maybe someone here have experienced the same and knows what to do.
