Domain scam spammers continue

Your brand is not in danger -- and if you're worried that it is, go to a domain registry and register it yourself. Don't reply to scammers like this, who are trying to sell you over-priced and unnecessary services to protect your business assets.

  1. Alan, I have an archive of these domain name scams stretching back for at least 4 years. Would you be interested in posting them so that others can find them and find out that they are a scam?

    At my company, these are coming to the most random people in order to get 'in' with someone foolish enough to think that these are 'helpful' people. Talk about souring the milk of human kindness.

    Feel free to contact me @rossolson or ross at rossolson dot com.
