    I just woke up to be overwhelmed with such a big offer that i received from a supposed Japanese company. However, before falling into the trap ..i checked NamePros threads..which confirmed that this is a bogus email. Thank You NP's for saving me from falling into this..Here's a snapshot of the email..if you receive a similar mail..at some point..ignore it. God Bless ya all.

    Did you reply him?

    Send him the link of this thread. :xf.smile:

    Let him search the forum and he will be surprised how many threads we got here about their scam.

    I received one of these as well on a domain I just acquired. Felt it was too good to be true, but I humored them in an effort to determine the intent.

    It's the old please certify your domain by paying 250 bucks trick. They usually stop responding once you suggest using an escrow service in lieu of certification. Definitely makes we wonder if they aren't casing Namepros, though.

    The name was Kamiko Nakamura posing as a Domain Broker from CPI Hosting Inc. The domain was a recently regged (cpi-ad-jp.info) about 3 days prior.
