    I have not posted my domain anywere else for sale, and i have been contacted. Its the same scammer, who has been scamming GOD KNOWS how many rookies. Now he wants me to get a appraisal.

    I have the original scammers emails, can we finanly put a stop to this person... is there a way we can inform him to the FBI, or the police force in UK? this person must be from UK, since he is on this site. And maybe not. Either way, as a community we have to find a way to track this scammer and put an end to him and place him in JAIL.

    The dude wants me to buy a appraisal from one of his sources and does not trust the big companies. LOL what a SCAMMER - this is my 3rd email from him the last 5 years.

    Below is the list of his recent email scam.

    We 've found your name listed for sale..

    If you are still interested in seling please send your quote and I will consider it with my partners.

    Main direction of our business is software development and technical support.

    It's hard to believe that someone from GoDaddy will do a research for
    only$14. It means their service is automated. I trust manual services only.
    I thought about several companies including, but found very
    interesting information:So is NOT acceptable.
    Reading responses from experienced sellers I was impressed by one reply:
    "Many Internet users are not smart enough and popular domain brokers are
    using this fact to make money. They offer them cheap appraisal services.
    Butif their customers would have something in their heads they'd understand
    experts could not make a professional research for $15-$20. These
    made by machines. Easy money for such appraisers as
    In my eyes, all services under $50-$55 arenot
    manual and the results are generated by special scripts. I don't trust
    auto-generated appraisals."
    The same is true for GoDaddy and SEDO. Their services are not manual.
    They are just collecting money using their well-known names.
    I heard many appraisal companies often overpriced domains. So I cannot
    accept appraisal from each and every site.

    I have had very similar emails to the one posted.... It's so obvious what they are up to and like many others that receive these scam emails I take great delight in stringing them along:-D Untill telling them to get lost ...In a polite manner of course....
    However the thing that is most concerning is that they are very similar- but not the same....
    Is this one person, or is this many copy cats following a trend for what they think is easy money...
    I also think a stop to this should be made.The scam has been around for a long time so you can only think that it's profitable!!!

    Mate, whatever justice you wish to pursue, I suggest you do it your side of the pond.

    Our police would track him down, arrest him and then someone would say it has contravened his human rights to scam people and he would be paid compensation for loss of earnings.

    You think I'm joking don't you?
