    Hi,

    Personally, sounds like a sweet pretty little tactics. I mean if you stupid enough to not check that a "similar" domain is not registered before you reply to these email... well joke on you!

    But, my human side tells me to fool the fool. I mean I hate when spammers spam and I really hate when scammers scam. So my response to these email are usually as follow:

    "Hi [name],

    That sounds like a great idea. Are you still selling the domain and for how much?

    Best,
    JennNy"

    From my personal experience, I saw five unregistered domains being registered the next day. Well, I did my deed, a scammer was fooled to think that someone is interested in their useless domain. A few days later, I usually received an offer from a different sender telling me that the domain is ready to transfer, and all I need to do is pay. Now, mind you I never provide real information to these fools.

    What do you do when you receive these emails? Do you just mark them as spam or do you do something fun?

    I mean, think about it. Instead of just trashing these emails and replying to these email you contribute twice.

    1. You fool a scammer.
    2. You get to laugh about it when they actually reg a useless domain. :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

    Welcome To NamePros JennNy.

    Great idea, I have read about it on this forum before but I have never done it. The scammers need to go away and if we make them all register a lot of crap, they'll stop some day.

    Nice idea - I don't seem to get these. I think my filtering blocks them. Maybe I should let them through. :)

    I usually get these to the spam folder as well. So from time to time, I go over spam to check if I didn't miss anything. and bam its there.

    I used to get creative with responses, until I realized these people basically have committed their entire pathetic lives to doing this 24/7, and to keep up I would have to do the same.

    Now I just treat them like annoying flies, swatting them away, squishing them when I have time.

    Same experience as @HotKey i had a fun twice or thrice but i realized its far away from affecting or stopping them all and with lack of time i had to stuck to simply report them spam.

    The annoying part is when you are expecting some important email and then with notifcation you eagerly check to read them.
