If a domain has incorrect WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain address can be deleted or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS details are public and could be seen on many lookup websites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry companies.
