My name is Sam Scammer Chase and I'm emailing you about the domain name
After coming across your website in the search engines I thought this
domain might be of interest to you
and that you may wish to leave an offer because we are selling it will
be sold off in the coming week.
If you are interested you can let us know by simply visiting the link
below and leaving your contact details:
You would not need a new website or hosting, you can simply redirect the
to point to your existing website so it would be a quick and simple process.
The domain comes with full registration for one year and there are no
hidden costs its a one time payment to get full control and ownership.
Have a great day and thank you for your time!
The interesting thing is - the domain he's telling me about is similar
to one of my domains, just missing the first few characters. But
without those characters the domain name makes no sense.
But what's even funnier - the domain itself isn't even registered. If I
wanted it, I'd just go to GoDaddy and get it.
That's a new twist on a scam!

Re: [OT] A new scam
I have been getting similar emails. I thought they were real offers,
since the domain name suggests a subject matter similar to my own
site's. I have just ignored them, since I have no interest in the domain
name, and they are too spammish to respond to.
Re: A new scam
Does SpamCop keep you in touch about your complaint?
Me also got this kind of emails, it was about a kind of 'sister
domain' of my domain they offered for was it now 100 or more dollars.
About a month later I do the search if it was available.
It was, without any of the known complications of an expired domain.
I bought for a small price.
Re: A new scam
No, they just pass on the complaint. The ISP that gets the complaint
might contact you, though. Sometimes to tell you that the spammer has
been kicked out of their network.
