    So I've just woke up and received the following email which has come from no one!

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Is the domain mydomain.com for SALE?

    If YES, please go to the link below and submit your price:

    www.ExpiredDomainRank.com/default.aspx?dom=mydomain.com

    Thank you very much,
    Good Luck!


    I've not clicked the linked but I did go to the website and it looks a lot like expireddomains.net.

    Anyone else had these sort of emails before?

    FYI Ive replaced the domain enquired about with the words mydomain. I don't own mydomain.com

    Looks more like spam to me than scam...

    Yes, I just received three more messages from "Alexander" - [email protected]

    The same exact message, over and over again.

    It looks like his strategy is not to spam the same eMail address, but I have multiple addresses, so I am receiving all of the same formatted messages.

    I agree. Sometimes, they change up the wording a bit. I think they're just looking for traffic more than scamming you.
