Be careful when someone you don’t know emails you a great offer to buy their domain name.
Someone is sending emails to domain name owners telling them it’s their lucky day–they can acquire the domain name Luck.com for only $45,000.
According to the sender, he knows the domain is worth a lot more but he needs the funds fast. He posted a similar message on NamePros under a different name than he is emailing from.
Don’t fall for this too-good-to-be-true offer on a domain that sold for $675,000 in 2009.
It’s important to be especially careful when someone sends an unsolicited email to you offering a domain name for sale. Do your due diligence.
Unsolicited email solicitations are a popular way to offload stolen domains. Domain thieves try to sell these domains before people realize they are stolen and you can get stuck holding the bag.
Other times it’s not an issue of domain theft. It’s just an outright scam.
