    I made this thread to make people aware of what alias this stupid domain appraisal guy with no life is using.

    I received a few emails from this guy over the last few months. He is starting to really piss me off! Stupid Scammer, Listen!

    OK, the email and name he used to message me as of 12/03/2012 is:

    David Lemmer

    NHP Solutions

    [email protected]


    Please follow this link and report this guy https://supportcenter.godaddy.com/Abuse/SpamReport.aspx?
    If you receive these emails, please post to this thread with the fake name he use and the email he use. This is to help people from getting scammed.

    If you get an email from this guy please send to the spam folder and report abuse with your email provider. Thanks.

    I just got an email from this guy. Could you provide details as to why he's a scammer? He claims he wants to buy one of my domains. Thanks!

    He does not want to buy your doman. He will send you an email asking you to get an appraisal, then after you spend the money on the appraisal he will not buy your name.

    He is a scammer!

    He is just an idiot scammer with no life, with nothing better to do then send out the same email to thousands of people. Just ignore him and send his email to the spam folder.

    got an email from this guy yesterday.
    still uses the name Lemmer.
    he made a bid on 2 of my domains and asked for payment info.
    he also asked me if I am a fellow domainer and which domain boards/forums + nicknames I use.
    I told him I am all over the place but didn't give him (nick)names.
    No response after that.
    My guess is he will soon become a member of NP and start spreading positive threads about David Lemmer.

    OK, just found out that his domains are regged and hosted at GoDaddy, so about to get to the bottom of this and get his operation shut down. If he sends from any other domain or name, please post to this thread. Thanks. Please SPAM his emails too.

    I did a Google search, obviously no NH Investment Solutions. I find it amusing when somone lists themselves as a CEO and there are zero records online.

    Hi all,

    I have just joined this forum. I found this forum by chance as I was trying to fish out a possible scam and by reading this post I am glad that I did. So thanks to "Thechamp"

    This person/s are using another name, The email formatting is very similar. He introduced himself as Isaac Schumacher

    I am a newbie on dealing with domains but a bit more savvy to fall for this scam. Hope to be learning from the pros here in this new venture.

    Thatchap


    Here are the two emails that I received from the scammer.

    795 - Ok. Before we spend this sum I need to talk to my accountant.

    What are your payment details?

    Are you a member of domain seller communities/forums? Probably we know each
    other under some nicknames?

    I'm going to invest in hosting, adult and online shopping related names.

    Best regards,

    ----------------------------------

    Yes, escrow.com is ok. Before we proceed my accountant suggested me to ask you for two small things:

    1. We need a valuation certificate.

    We need a good in depth analysis made by experts but not an automated free service. Without it we both can't be sure in the price.

    2. We need a trademark verification as well. Just a formality to be sure you have no problems with trademarks.

    Good companies offers this as a part of appraisal. I asked in the forum about reliable valuation/TM verification services.

    Please read this information:

    http://www.seven-forums.com/Archive/160495783.htm

    If the evaluation comes higher you can change your asking price. After you send me the professional evaluation via email (usually it takes one day to obtain it) we'll be doing business.

    Yes. Before we go any further, let me ask you for two small things.

    After speaking with my accountant I need the following:

    1. Valuation certificate.

    We need a good in depth analysis made by experts but not an automated free service. Without it we both can't be sure in the price.

    2. We need a trademark verification as well. Just a formality to be sure you have no problems with trademarks.

    Unfortunately, these scams work because there is an endless line of fresh naifs who get scammed by this kind of trickery.

    We just need to keep hammering at these bad guys and gals (yes, they exist as well) and hope that we can minimize their damage as much as possible.
