Scam moves to a new domain.
I’m getting tired of writing these stories (again), but I consider them a public service announcement.
A long running domain name appraisal scam has moved to a new domain name, Macez.com. That the scammers keep moving shows that the scam is working well by getting unsuspecting people to pay for an appraisal at Macez.com.
If you receive this email, hit “report spam” on your email client. Do not buy a domain appraisal from macez.com.
