Checking for a specific user in a domain

Is there a way I can check for the existence of a specific user account in the domain?
You can use the following VB Script to verify that an individual already has an account in the domain. Replace the text in bold with your specific information.
Dim oUser, oDomain
Set oDomain = GetObject("WinNT://"&sDomainName)
oDomain.Filter = Array("user")

For Each oUser In oDomain
If LCase(oUser.Name) = LCase(sUserName) Then
WScript.Echo oUser.Name & " already has an account."
WScript.Quit
End If
Next
