The data trail of the Fake me at Demo

I received an e-mail from the company that oversaw registration at the Demo conference—where a fake Steve Baker circulated under my name. From the looks of things, he set up a BusinessWeektech domain. And he gave a phone number that connects to an answering service where a foreign-accented voice pronounces my/his name. To top it off, according to Bill Baker, a commenter on the previous post, this imposter even borrowed $20 in my name.

Question: Is this just of anecdotal interest, or a sign of a more troubling trend? Anything I (or BW) should do?

I’ll paste the domain registration data about this person under the fold. Don’t want to waste space with it. But if someone sees interesting facts or leads from it, please enlighten me.

Following is the domain registration info for It was apparently registered through a company called "One and One," which is owned by a European company, Schlund+Partner. I got it from Network Solutions' "whois" database.
