Domain Name Scam

I checked a domain name to see if it is available. Network Solutions’ Whois says it is available. So I go to my web hosting service to register it and set up a site, and they say it isn’t available. I check the Whois there and it says Network Solutions registered the name FOR ITSELF right after I checked it.
What a scam. If you CHECK a domain name, they immediately take it, assuming it has some value. And, being Network Solutions they can do that without paying for it.
