Bought a new domain, the effects in the web are incredible…

I wrote in the post “What do you think: aggressive sales campaign or fraud?” about the attempt to impress and scare me of losing my domain.

Now, I bought a new domain which was free in Internet. I watched this domain for two years to become available again, after i lost it because of a bad ISP.

Minutes later I started to get emails related to the above mentioned campaign:

Interesting… So, there are robots on the Internet that monitor new domain acquisitions and contact you to offer their services.

I have no idea how they do that without knowing the domain before.

Are they working with the IPS that I use to host the domain?

Or is there an index somewhere (alexa.com?) which they parse and check the differences in ownership?

 

I am absolutely OK with the emails 2-4. They have to try to get my business. Note, however, that some invest more to get my name and domain, while others send generic spam emails.

I am, however, very upset regarding the first email which is trying to scare me to do something, thinking that I don’t read or don’t understand what they mean.

What they do is fraud!

I have copied the contents of the emails in plain text in order to be indexed good by search engines. This way, hopefully, many will see that they are just spammers.

 

In case you’re wondering what will happen at that domain, drop me a line.
