    Got this email yesterday. Seems sketchy? I delete the domain name is is a VCCV.com , the reply email is [email protected]

    Hello!

    I represent a professional investor from Scotland who wants to buy (deleted).com for a new project.

    Are you still interested in selling?

    If you have more names I can help you to sell them.

    I work as a domain broker and lawyer for a hosting company.

    Best Regards,
