Think Someone Wants To Buy Your Domain? Think Again!

Have you ever gotten an email from an interested buyer for one of your domain names?

How excited were you? Pretty excited I bet. It’s an amazing feeling and even better when you negotiate a deal!

Depending on the size or quality of your domain portfolio, you should get at least a few inquiries per year of interested buyers.

But what happens when you get an email that just seems fishy?

This happened to us a few weeks ago actually.

At first, it looks like a legit email. The person seems a bit sincere and interested in your domain name. It could look something like this.

I should have known but for some reason I thought this was actually someone who was interested in the domain we currently own.

I tried to give the benefit of the doubt. I responded to the email with a price quote and got this reply.

Yep…

It’s crap. Nothing else to see here.

Whenever you get a response like this, just know it’s 99.9% of the time BULL. I see lots of people on Namepros mention something like this and unfortunately, I know some people do lose money on crap like this.

So if you ever get an email similar to this, now you know what to do.

    • Yeah, I know what you mean. For some reason though, initially I thought there “may” be a chance. But after seeing that 2nd email I already knew.

  1. As the new gtlds continue their death spiral, you will see prices of .COMs increase. The more valuable that .Coms get, the more scams to steal them will take place.

  2. Yo I definitely got the same email a month ago! I was skeptical but I gave it a chance due to the high reward. A week later after negotiating with the person, he kept leading me through different steps that were more suspicious. Luckily he deleted his email before I made a $250 transaction to get my domains certified. Thank you for posting this!

  3. These mails are looking familiar šŸ™‚ But…

    Once I got a mail from someone with a weird name asking about a 5 letter .com I just bought 2 weeks earlier (I bought it, didn’t register it). When reading the mail I thought *scam* immediately. But I replied to him….

    It was a bad 5 letter.com and it was a couple of years ago.

    I answered the mail with something like this;

    Sure, you can buy it for $1000. My paypal is *****. If you send the money I will push it to your account on GoDaddy.

    To my surprise; This guy just paid the $1000 and gave me his username. I was like *WTF*, but ok. I just sold the name to him. It was surreal but a good experience hehe.

    Now I reply to most of these kind of mails
