    Hi BHWers,

    I recently received a request to buy my parking domains. At first, I thought it is normal and I sometime received requests before.
    But this time is complete different and I have never experienced. I post here the emails I received from that guy and my email sent to him. After carefully checked his sites, I know all are fake and he must be trying to scam me or something illegal. Please tell me what do you think about what he is going to do in this "deal".

    1st email from him:
    My replied email:
    His 2nd email:
    My replied email:
    His replied email:

    My answered email:

    His email:

    Of course I will never pay any money first, because I have seen many types of scams, so I asked him to send me the
    appraisal services cost first to see how he act.


    My replied email:
    Here is his answer email:

    After checking his sites, I know all are fake so he must be trying to scam me money.

    I stooped replying him here and think I would talk with experienced BHWers for their advices and ideas.
    Have anyone ever run into this scam type? Please share your thought here.
    Thanks.

    I've read it and is clearly a scam network. For sure is using the fake sites for making the legit impression regarding his identity and his legit intentions. From my point you should announce some authorities regarding this scheme maybe you can nail them

    sounds like he owns http://market.icaan.info/appraisal.htm and is just trying to get you to buy his services.

    They run the Domain appraisal site.
    Blindside you. While you're thinking big bucks for the domains they are scamming you
    the appraisal fees.

    This is one of the oldest scams in the book. "Hi we want to buy your worthless domain for 4 trazillion dollarz plz"

    ..."oh but first you must get it appraised here..."

    Obviously a scam, $180,000 budget is a huge amount of money which his investor is willing to pay? He's not really worth of your time.

    If you have a small time to kill, look for another appraisal site and tell him you had it appraised there for half the price. Learning that another appraisal site benefited from his labor would make his day. LOL.

    Otherwise, just focus on making money.

    Thank you all for your replies. I had wasted time with him. Now it's time to focus on working hard to make money and never waste time on "easy big money" like this [​IMG]!

    As someone above said.. this is a well known scam now. Either the guy owns the apprasal site or he gets a commission for referring people. Do not fall for this..100% SCAM. 100% SCAM.

    lol, someone tried to get me with an almost identical scheme. What I ended up doing was offering him a "deal" where he pays for the appraisals, and I'd subtract the cost of the appraisals from the final sales price of the domains. That got rid of him, heh.

    I wouldnt have ignored the messages. I would have come over the top and showed him some fake appraisals that you "got" from another site. That way you call his possible bluff and he would either show his true colors or pay hou the amount he said. Its more like he first bluffed you with a rich investor, then you called his bluff by accepting the price increasebut then he rebluffed you with the icann appraisals; from there, you SHOULD have called his rebluff by showing him a fake appraisal as he was NOT prepared for that.

    That way you shoukd have either: discovered scammer or earnef yourself a juicy commission :cool:
