    Seems like someone is trying to scam me into paying for a dodgy appraisal which I suspect he also owns.

    Already replied saying no to the appraisal and if he wants the domain to just go ahead and buy it.

    Anyone come across this scam/website?

    Hi,

    These type of scams have been around for a while, keep him on the hook and waste his time before telling him to go get f**ked.

    Many Thanks

    Anyway if anyone want to see a copy of the e-mail they sent, please go to

    I was scammed couple of months ago with similar kind of e-mail but soon I realised that and asked for a refund from plimus and get the money back.

    It seems like this guy never gives up.

    0.1% take up from 10000 emails = nice steady income.

    Just the nature of scamming unfortunately. Just be aware and not be the 0.1%
