Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Another day, another scam.

I have received several poorly written emails, similar to the one below, "warning" me that another company may be about to buy variations on one of my many domain names.

The scam, were I to bite, would involve offering to sell me the domains for a "reasonable" fee.

In reality, anyone is entitled to buy a domain name that has yet to be registered at any time. Were someone really in the process of buying these domain names, a legitimate domain registration company would not delay them.

Dear CEO,

We’re the internet dispute organization authorized by the government,which mainly deal with international company's in Asia. We have something important need to confirm with your company.

On the June,15, 2010, we received an application formally. One company named " Green International Holdings Ltd" wanted to register following.

Internet keyword: kenfrost

Domain names:

through our body.

After our initial examination, we found that the keywords and domain names applied for registration are as same as your company's name and trademark. If you do not know this company, we doubt that they have other aims to buy these domain names. currently, we haven't finished the registration of Fenevery International Holdings Ltd yet. In order to avoid the vicious domain name grabbing,please let the relevant person make a confirmation with me via telephone or email as soon as possible. Thank you for your support to our work!

Best Regards,
