Most Popular Domain Name Scams, Part I #news #domaining #domain

A broker sends you what seems to be a normal offer for one of your domains. They may offer a large amount right off the bat. Otherwise they’ll probe a bit, asking if it’s for sale, if you have more domains, and if you’re an “experienced domainer.” Here’s one I’ve personally received: “Hello! I represent a businessman who needs to buy [removed].com for a new project. I located your contact information in a domain name whois lookup and understand that you own the domain name. Are you still interested in selling?I work for a hosting company based in UK. I help our clients to buy and sell intellectual properties. Do you have more names? Can you send a list? Are you an experienced seller? Best Regards, [Name Removed] Vice President [Company Removed]”
