|Is it possible to lose a domain |
If I use fake name for registration

Private registration services are available, and not too expensive. That basically keeps all but lawyers and law enforcement with a subpoena from accessing your info. If your site topic is 'too hot' even for that, then a re-think of your plans might be in order.

I have seen domains that have fake address/contact info disabled. As the other posters mention, definitely look for private registration services.
If someone has an interest in your domain, they could easily file an Invalid WhoIs complaint, conveniently linked from the WhoIs page at Godaddy. If the name is also registered with Godaddy, they will disable it.
Be warned and good luck

It always worries me when people recommend using Private Whois Services, you need to choose the company very carefully as may have little redress if things go wrong.
The owner of the domain is often likely to be the third party Privacy Service rather than you. You have a contract with them which may give you substantially less protection than if your name is in the WHOIS.

There's no set standard for registrars responses to false whois information on a domain. You'll lose it in a heartbeat at GoDaddy if you don't reply to their email within about 3 weeks. No more questions asked. Other registrars have different approaches.

Heartbeat and don't respond in three weeks are a bit of a contradiction.

The heartbeat begins after the 3 week wait :)
