A text message domain sales pitch and email spam message that links to a .club domain name.
Just when I thought I’d seen it all when it comes to spam, today I experienced two firsts.
The first was that I received an SMS message offering three domain names for sale. I don’t know the sender, although it was pretty easy to look up their corporate identity using whois.
They were pitching .xyz domains, by the way. So that makes it the first time someone has contacted me trying to sell a new TLD.
The other first was that I received a spam message that linked to a new TLD. In this case it was a pitch for a “Weird Food that KILLED my blood pressure” that linked to a .club domain name.
I suppose .club will be more friendly to spammers than more expensive new TLDs. Do you think the spammer is testing a new TLD to grab the user’s attention?
