Some Interesting Findings
We found out that some people have more than one LL.com domains.
² JN.com, JP.com, KD.com, QD.com, QN.com, TB.com
The addresses for the 6 domain point to a WeChat QR code picture of Chinese domainer Dai Yue, with words "The domain you (are) visiting is asking for sale", "Scan the QR code to add me as your WeChat contact". One domain, KD.com, was registered to Liu Chun Cheng, but not Dai Yue. They seem to have some sort of relationship. The other 5 domains are under WHOIS privacy.
² AF.com, HB.com, LZ.com, ZN.com
The addresses for the 4 domains point to Leap of Faith Financial Services Inc., where George Kirikos is the President. They are all under WHOIS privacy.
