today i just received the most legitimate scam in last year. is about a domain that i own and they would like purchase. this has been going around and around for people to purchase appraisals so companies could make some money. simply report the email as scam to who ever is your email system administrator.
here is the email information:
from Mark Allen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
subject Offer for your domain domainname.com
also here is how the email comes out like:
We are interested to buy your domain name domainname.com
and offer to buy it from you for 70% of the appraised market value.As of now we accept appraisals from either one of the following leading appraisal companies:
If you already have an appraisal please forward it to us.
As soon as we have received your appraisal we will send you our payment (we use paypal for amounts less than $2,000 and escrow.com for amounts above $2,000) as well as further instructions on how to complete the transfer of the domain name.
We appreciate your business,
hope that helps reducing the amount of scam in the world!!!
