A South Florida real estate agent was fired by his broker after being named in a massive hacked data leak from Epik, a domain registrar that hosts websites with far-right, neo-Nazi and another extremist.
Pompano Beach agent Joshua Alayon has reportedly attempted to register domains that include racisminc.com, holocaust-truth.com, theholocaustisfake.com, whitechristianrepublican.com and whitesencyclopedia.com, Inman and the Washington Post reported. Alayon has denied owning the theracisminc.com site, which posts racist memes, but did not answer a question about its owner.
Alayon suspended his license with Parkland-based Travers Miran Realty for approximately eight months. Broker and owner Rick Rap pulled Alayon after learning of the hack, telling Inman he didn’t want “anything like it associated with myself or my business.”
After threatening Inman’s reporter with legal action via text message, Alayon allegedly offered to help if the reporter ever sought to buy a house in Florida.
Alayon has been licensed in Florida as a real estate agent since 2018, according to state records. He uses the nickname “@SouthFloridasFavoriteRealtor” on social media and owns the website rentingsouthflorida.com.
