“Will You Buy My Domain Name Junk?”

tlds

I got an email from a well known domain name spammer you all probably know: Simonas. I guess most people in domaining have received emails from him. Yes, he is a spammer as he will not stop mass emailing and has been doing it for years now. I have removed his last name but it is not that hard to find.

I have to admit this is one of the most honest emails I have received. He clearly says that he is out for a quick profit by flipping domain names fast. As he is not always successful in selling these domains he now wants to get rid of this domain junk at prices from 6 USD to 30 USD per domain, when sold in bulk.

Thanks Simonas but no thanks!

This is his complete email below. (I would scratch the investor part from his email.)

Domain Portfolio Sale

I am Simonas ****** , domain name flipper / investor.

I’m reaching out to you because you own a domain name related to domaining business & I was wondering if you would be interested in doing business together.

I register domain names and try to flip them for a quick profit, however, some of them, even good one’s, sometimes doesn’t get sold (examples: BeautifulMinneapolis.com, CheaperLearning.com, DeliciousJuices.com, etc).

Since my business model is based on quickness of the sales, I was wondering if you might be interested in buying the names that I didn’t sell in bulk sales.

Usually my price for portfolio sale averages from 6 USD to 30 USD per domain (when buying whole portfolio of 50+ names).

Please let me know if you would be interested in this.

If you’re not interested – I am sorry about this email. I will make sure not to email you again if you won’t reply to this email.

Thank you,
Simonas.

    Very funny email from a spammer πŸ˜€

    • I choked on my sandwich after reading that and saw the irony, nice use of word placement too “email from a spammer”

  4. I don’t know Simonas, I don’t remember ever receiving his emails and I hate spammers just like the next guy.

    Having said that, if a successful domain broker or investor reaches out to potential buyers is called outreach, why should the email above considered any different? He’s contacting domain investors offering to do business together. People may or may not be interested in his domains, but I wouldn’t necessarily call that email spam, although I must admit I would probably be very annoyed myself if I was on the receiving end of the same email many times per day/week.

    Just my two cents.

  5. Out of curiosity I searched Google and all I found was Morgan Linton praising this Simonas guy for “send-out emails to the owners of similar domains”, Mike Berkens complaining that he didn’t counter nor reply to his emails quoting prices (I wonder why) and a Namepros thread discussing “emails from domainers selling crap names”.

    Hardly proof the guy is a spammer. As I said in my original post, I don’t think the specific email in your example is spam, but I still wouldn’t like to get that email or other similar ones on a regular basis.

    • I have been receiving emails from Simonas for 5+ years. He will not stop.
      If that is not spam then we have a different definition of spam.

      And just because he was working for Morgan doesn’t mean he is not a spammer.

      Simonas kept sending me email (for dictionary word dot coms) after I requested he stop, so I complained to Gmail:

      I just another one from Simonas today on Positioned.com.
      I also get the same thing – lots of inquiries and no responses from a Fara Day.
