    An email from Dynadot, received everyday recently.
    .......
    Dear topdom,

    This email is in response to your request to enroll the domain name(s) below for sale on the Afternic secondary marketplace:

    Afternic need-confirm domains: domaintobestolen.com

    If you have requested this action via Afternic, you need to finalize the process by giving your permission for the for-sale listing by logging in and following these steps:

    On the "Manage Domains" page, check the boxes next to the domain(s) requiring confirmation.
    From the "Bulk Action" drop down menu, choose the "Set Afternic" option.
    Select "Confirm Afternic" from the drop down list.
    Click on the "Save Settings" button.

    Please note that by clicking on this link, you are pre-authorizing the sale and transfer of this domain name to the buyer should the buyer agree to pay your buy now price without further authorization from you. You also agree to opt out of the 60 day ownership change lock which would usually be applied after a sale has been completed.

    If you did not initiate the listing process of this domain on Afternic, please disregard this email. If you have any questions or need further information, you can contact us at dynadot
    ....
    Why am I receiving such an email.

    Domain listed on Afternic by me and without a price or fasttransfer. Who else can try to steal it?

    Can it be the case that domain is under my account, but dsl connection is under someone else's account ( such as previous owner) , and when someone tries to buy this domain, Godaddy realizes that dsl is broken, and I'm asked to repair it.

    I get Afternic emails sometimes about opting in to listings I did not submit. Usually it is someone listing it by mistake, like from an old list of domains.

    In this specific case not sure.

    If the domain has afternic listing under your afternic account, I'd check the email validity. Is it really from dynadot (headers, real links to click, etc)?

    I get the email when I list Dynadot names on Afternic. If you didn't list the mentioned name and got this email, ignore it or contact Afternic.
