Why do people falsely claim to own domain names without paying for them?

In India, especially Goa, many well connected locally powerful people claim to own domain names, websites, when they do not want to pay a single penny towards expenses. What is the reason why these people with a high social status, are behaving so cheaply and dishonestly falsely claiming to own the domain names which actually belong to a domain investor.

While buying domain you should always check the whois information to validate. Unless you are cent percent sure about the authorship, you should not release the money.
