Dear REACH admins,

>From the email address in Merit’s IRR Directory [Reference: ],
I contacted you at dbadmin at regarding taking-down a fake
IRR entry of my prefix [original email attached below],
but got the response from Gmail saying that it cannot contact your email

Please kindly consider my request.

Best Regards,

Subject: Request: fake IRR entry take-down
To: <dbadmin at>

To whom it may concern,

We---at Kasetsart University, Thailand [Reference:]---are in the process of
strengthening our routing security against (BGP) Route Hijacking.

We have already registered all of our prefixes with the APNIC RPKI Trust
We present the following URL as an authentication of prefixes ‘ownership’.

However, your database is currently announcing 1 fake entry incorrectly
listing AS4750 as the origin of *our* netblock.

That fake entry represents a security threat to our network.
Any AS that implements IRR-Only Route Filtering will obviously trust your
database and thus will divert our traffic somewhere else.

We therefore humbly request that you take down that fake entry.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me using the addresses
in the signature section.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best Regards,
