Hey Guys, its a hot day in Alabama and the weather has finally cleared. Its been over 2 months since I have posted but I am coming back to the idea and developing a better blog also going to be adding a few things here and there. But Today I was reading and scrolling through forums and just reading and looking for something to wrote about. But, I didn’t want to be like every other blog out on the net and write about Yahoo! and Tumblr.
So, Today I am going to be writing about scams and a few scams that I have seen over the years. I thought this would be a good idea because everyone is always asking for alerts and scams on domain names. Weather the domain name is stolen or is this person real. I got this offer is it real? So I want to write about some thing.
All of these domains are assumed to be stolen. If you see theme domains do not purchase these domains. If you do its a crime because you will have stolen property (is domains really property?) Assuming, the real owners is located.
Domain Name Appraisal Scam (most Common)
You get an email from XXXXXXX from XXXX.XXX and they want to buy this domain for $20,000 but they want you to have it appraised at this Prodomainvaluation.com site that you never heard of. This is the scam. They own the valuation website and want you to pay the $49.99 to $99.99 to have the domain valuated. After you pay to have it valuated, you will never hear from them again and now your short $50. Just do not do it. Use GoDaddy or Sedo to have it valuated, or if they want to pay for it. Never Pay for it to be done for them.
Remember, if it seems to good to be true it more them likely is unless its someone you contacted about buying the domain or they are willing to pay you for things requested like appraisals, valuations and such.
Always Take Care and be smart.
