So I received an email from some fake broker that said exactly this: "Hello! Our regular customer is interested in ********.com. He has a good budget and can make a really nice offer. If it's still for sale please email me. If you have a Telegram user name please send to me. We will communicate faster via this messenger. Regards, Aiko Tomahazu Vice President Investor Relations Future-S Hosting LLC. Tokyo Japan" I responded by saying that yes, the domain name is still for sale and that I was still accepting offers. His reply was a very generic one saying this: You may contact our English speaking representative Robert at https://t.me/Robert****** His Telegram username: @Robert****** Our commission is only 5 %. The commission is divided between you and the buyer and paid after you get the money. The buyer offers * BTC (Bitcoin). If it's ok let's proceed. You will be paid Bitcoins/Ethereum, wire transfer or Western Union. The payment to you will be made via escrow service to protect both parties during the transaction. Do you have a certificate for your domain in English and Japanese? It's required by the buyer and his escrow service. They must be sure your domain has no restrictions or problems with law and trademarks in Japan. He won't proceed without it. The certificate must include the following to be accepted by my buyer: - Trademark infringement verification (the buyer does not want to lose the domain after purchase because it has problems with trademarks). - The domain must not be pledged or sold to third parties (verification of restrictions). - The certificate must be up to date (issued during last 30 days) - Copy of the certificate in Japanese (required by the buyer because he does not speak English). - The certification agency must be authorized by my buyer and his bank. We asked him if GoDaddy or Sedo appraisal certificates will work for him. Now we are awaiting for his answer." As soon as I read this email, I knew that this is a scam, because these certificate scams have been going on for quite some time, and I've never fallen into this trap at all: basically, I'm not stupid! So am I right? This is a scam, correct?
