How can I combat this? (I own this domain already)
They even have a sales page for it.
Get a few people to offer them big bucks and get them excited enough to buy it from you

Its a normal expiry thing, people line up buyers, dropcatch name and flog.
To combat it, renew your domain
Yep, had one or two I'm actually surprised there isn't more of this type of attempted "brokerage" out there. The domains offered usually either match at keyword that you have a heavy presence in or more likely you also hold the .co.uk or other extension - probably the same for your contact Admin
They only go after the "pending deletion" domains - and then work out if a capture is a good $7 punt
PS - I view their contact as a damn right insult - "so I've got a domain that you don;t think is going to attract the big boys - type of thing"
