    NOTE: This was my first time I had someone contact me I'm pretty new into domain business so..

    So recently I was contacted by someone who pointed out a specific domain that I have he said his investor is interested in purchasing and asked me if I had any more good domains and if I would be interested in selling them.

    So I emailed that person saying I'm not really interested in selling that specific domain if the price is right I might consider it also sent him a few more domains that I own...

    And I got this as a reply back

    @none11 The client doesn't exist. The person emailing you either owns or is affiliated with the appraisal site recommended in the archived Google thread (which isn't real either). Once you purchase the appraisals, they get their money and disappear. You'll never see the $55K they're baiting you with.

    2 years ago they contacted me and I told them that the site is suspicious and was only 1 year old. I suggested that I use another appraisal service and they never replied. I wish there is a way to stop them!

    Most police departments / law enforcements will probably never prioritize this kind of behavior, so the best way is probably that we spread the word (and ridicule the crooks behind it). Just as happened with the Nigeria scamming guys. I think their activity has become less and less common, as common people are aware of it nowadays.
