    Hello everyone!

    First time posting on here, hope this is the right area for something like this. I recently purchased a domain for movie streaming, I've been slowly getting it up and running.

    I just received an email today about this domain from something called "DDRA - Domain Data Research & Analytics Inc." Has anyone ever heard of this? They are offering up to $250 to monitor my domain which sounds too good to be true. I wanted to check here first before I decide to respond or ignore it.

    Just looking for answers so I don't screw myself over.

    Thanks for any help!

    Did they have a URL?

    As this thread is ranking for the term "DDRA - Domain Data Research & Analytics Inc." I would say it is probably a scam

    That's what I was thinking, just wanted to check. I'd really want to punch myself if I missed out on some extra cash haha.

    Below is a screenshot of their site. It's a .co domain. I'll just ignore the email. :) Thanks for your help!

    Ignore this type of email. It's just like a scam.

    Do you have privacy on the domain?
