    I got an email from a company called Digital Caucus offering to sell me a LLLL.com to match a LLLL.net that i own. This LLLL.com is a quad premium and they're offering it for $50. Too good to be true?

    Take a look here it may explain why they contacted you. http://www.dcinchq.com/
    Cannot find anything to do with scams by them so maybe it is legit and you are about to get a nice present! :hehe:

    Hi,

    Usually it's the Seller that has to be concerned about chargebacks with PayPal.

    You should be okay as the Buyer....except I just did a little research and came across this from another domain forum.

    If it's the same person/company you may want to tread cautiously.

    Someone named Warren Davis had a company named Digital Caucus
    and was doing deals on the other forum, then ...Warren Davis had his account terminated.

    I don't know if this is the same Digital Caucus.

    Digital Caucus... Digital Markup

    I got one of these emails and it seemed fishy to me, too. When I Googled them I got this forum, so I decided to hold off on purchasing the domain they had offered me. Out of curiosity I went to the place that I normally shop for domains, and guess what? The .com name they had offered me was available. Seems to me that Digital Caucus doesn't buy these domains, they probably simply have a list of expired domains. Once somebody expresses interest, they buy it and mark it up, then resell it to you. Anyway I bought the domain for less than a quarter of their price and I'm a happy gal. So I guess I owe them a thanks for the heads up. :)

    I took the risk... it worked

    I took the risk before reading this threat... they actually put the domain on an account with my name on it on less that 48 hours.

    dodgy dodgy dodgy!
    I got one of these emails too. Thank god I checked the forum - thanks guys! Would have paid $50 to get this domain through the <b>scam artist Warren Davis of Digital Caucus</b> when it is available on the net for £8.99!!!
    Thanks for saving me stress and money.

    Digital Caucus appear to be domain tasters or one of those companies that grab the domain simply to resell it. I recently was offered a .com domain because I own a .net version. They want $50 for it. I was offered the domain by another company first (InsightDomainVision.com, LeaderByChoice, Inc) trying to get me to bid on it.

    Then a week later, I get an email from Digital Caucus trying to sell the domain to me.

    It's all done under the guise of "helping you to secure the domain". Actually if I wanted the domain, what would help me greatly is that they stop acquiring the domain and then raping me with their high prices.

    These things are not services. They're scams.

    I should have known.
    I too, recently received a email from DC, stating they would sell me a dotcom , which I own the dotnet, for $150.
    I jumped on it, knowing I could actually use it, the dotcom. Paid with paypal.

    Days later, I received a email stating a refund of my purchase , instead of transferring the domain to me, they probably kept it or NEVER had it in the first place.

    At the very least, I did get a full refund, but I would of preferred the domain.
