I got an email with a great .com domain name in the subject. I opened it just because I was curious and not because I was expecting anything from the email.
What I got was an offer to buy the domain name for 7 figures:
“Hello, our client is looking for people who might be interested in buying domain name Investment.com
Our client is looking for offers in seven figure range.
Please let me know if you would be interested.
The email came from a gmail email address. The first thing I thought was that the domain was stolen. (I don’t think it is) Or that the so called broker is acting on its own. Or this is just a scam of some sort.
The gmail address can’t even let me for a second think that this could be legitimate. And the punctuation is wrong too.
The domain name Investment.com is owned by domaincapital.com. If they wanted to sell the domain I would expect an email from @domaincapital.com and not from “Harold.” or Harold Whitter that no one knows.
Even scammers are doing a sloppy job these days.
