I have back ordered a .com domain name at several places for a client and to my client the domain is worth a fair bit. The domain is due to drop in a few days and the Whois shows that the domain is with Network Solutions, is in Redemption period and the nameservers are ns1/ns2.PENDINGRENEWALDELETION.COM Yesterday my client got an email from a company saying... We are handling the sale of .......the..domain....com for a client of ours and you have a variation of this domain name and we thought this might interest you. At the moment we are contacting any interested parties and taking in offers for this domain starting at $69, but you can also give our support hotline a call and ask for the domains "Buy Out Price" that will close the auction and secure the domain to the first bidder who meets the sellers Buy Out Price. blah blah blah Would I be right in saying that the company who sent this email to my client do not have anything to do with the domain currently, and are just putting the feelers out to see if there is any interest, ahead of trying to drop catch it themselves? Not sure what to advise my client as I don't usually deal with domain purchases.
