Alas - this all may be true ... but: consider it just like reporting
spam with SpamCop. Continuing to report inaccurate whois
information - even if it takes time to react to it ... builds a case.
If you have enough of this - you could write a letter to ICANN
showing them that a certain registrar continues to accept domain
registrations purportedly from the same customer (registrant),
willfully using bogus information. That may get ICANN to take a
serious look at their registrar's compliance with the whois data
accuracy components of the registration agreement.
Don't get frustrated ... always consider that little bits of info
from each of us in the fight against spam, over time, may get
to the ultimate desired result.
