    Good advice. Hopefully I can heed that advice, and this will be my last post in this thread :facepalm:

    I don't see the significance behind [email protected]

    Couldn't it just be a typo mistake for [email protected]?

    Unfortunately, I'm not the greatest at disengaging. This thread sparked something yesterday, and my brains been racing ever since.

    I was combing through some Archive.org entries for ASZ.com and found two interesting tid-bits.

    (1) --unrelated--October 1999
    http://web.archive.org/web/19991008130441/http://asz.com/

    $8,500 starting price for a 2L.com in 1999? :D

    (2) January 29th, 2012 archive entry (parked at sedo)
    view-source:http://web.archive.org/web/20120129154744/http://asz.com/

    This entry exposes google analytic tracking ID: UA-19309218-3

    This could be nothing. As lots of domains seem connected to that tracking ID, and I'm unsure if that's related to a personal account, or a larger service, or just excess code.

    If you can’t... (Connect a good router (or two in-chain) to your modem & use to access the Internet + vpn). ... extra security against sniffing y ID, Auth etc.

    Now that you mention it,

    I did receive an odd email in my spam box last night.

    Suggesting (via including my previous email correspondence with another domain individual -- of which were emails from not my finest/healthiest moments. it's actually one of the few emails that I regret sending.. So it definitely raised an eyebrow to see it resurfaced in the body of the screenshotted email. It was/is an email to me, that serves as a reminder to be aware of my mental health status (and language used) when discussing / making unverified assumptions. Having assumed, and made an ass / embarassment out of myself) that either my communication, or the communication of another domain related company/individual may have been compromised at one point.

    The subject line

    Re: NamePros

    was likely leftover from the previous authentic correspondence between myself and another party. A third unrelated party amf@arabmediaforum.net, was the one that sent the email w/link, on top of an existing outdated email chain that amf wasn't aparty to.

    upload_2020-8-11_13-25-53.png

    The attached link is a 1drv.ms/ link that I'm not about to open on my current system.

    This email is likely unrelated to this thread.

    Just saying @Lox's advice is spot on. And definitely good general security advice to adhere to when sniffing around those who make a living off sniffing out others weaknesses. Just not too sure how to convey these concerns to others who may accuse precaution with paranoia. Especially if a persons paranoia could be both directly and indirectly associated with, and without taking warranted precautions.

    The question then becomes what makes taking precaution warranted vs paranoid? 😷

    Nice find (y)

    upload_2020-8-12_16-44-37.png

    Breaking this down.

    December 2016: ASZ.com was listed for sale on namePros HERE
    July 2017: @Acroplex comments in thread connecting 988.com
    August 2017: DomainGang.com publishes an article about 988.com being returned.
    April 2018: @Acroplex comments in thread connecting [email protected] to alleged stolen BNN.com

    Looking at historical WHOIS of domains of which WHOIS is currently connected to [email protected]...

    Brel.com WHOIS email looks to have changed to [email protected] on or around
    2018-01-18T01:11:18Z
    Prior to changing to [email protected],
    [email protected] looks to have been used for quite some time.

    upload_2020-8-12_17-48-35.png
    Current WHOIS for Brel.com shows: [email protected]
    ....

    BNN.com WHOIS email looks to have changed to [email protected] on or around

    According to Namebio, ASZ[dot]com was the seller of almi[dot]com today. almi[dot]com reportedly sold for 117,500. Weird.

    Because as*.com looks to have been a stolen domain, on the other hand it seems there isnt any previous owner making any claim. Weird.
