In recent months, there have been numerous customer complaints about the domain registrar and marketplace Epik.com on various social media platforms and forums.

 However, until recently, there were no formal legal actions against the company. This changed when one of Epik's customers, Matthew Adkisson, filed a lawsuit in a Washington State court (.pdf file) against Epik, its Founder Rob Monster, and CEO Bryan Royce, for not delivering a domain name - Nourish.com - that Adkisson had purchased through Epik.

Adkisson claims that he paid $327,000 for the domain but has only received $20,000 as a refund. The lawsuit also alleges widespread fraud at Epik, citing multiple issues that have resulted in numerous customer complaints. In the filing, Adkisson states that Epik did not contest owing the money and that Monster assured him he would personally cover the outstanding balance if the company failed to do so.
 Adkisson, who is being represented by Seattle firm Perkins Coie LLP, is seeking reimbursement for interest and costs incurred while trying to recover his funds.
