Yeah, I understand that. It's my fault, no doubt.
Thanks for report.
It seems the guy is now banned at DP, which is unusual cos DP never ban scammers.
Could be a hacked DP account?

We've made some fantastic improvements to our Seller Protection
policy on eBay and wanted to share the good news. It's now
easier than ever to be covered against item-not-received and
item-significantly-not-as described claims, chargebacks, and
reversals. Additional highlights include:
- No annual coverage limit - Every eligible claim is covered at no
additional cost to you.
- International sales coverage - Go ahead, sell worldwide. Seller
Protection extends to purchases made by buyers in 190 countries.
- Ship to unconfirmed addresses for eBay sales - Now you can ship
to any address and eligible sales are covered.
There's nothing you need to do. These improvements apply to
all eBay sellers in the U.S. and are effective immediately.
For details, see our complete terms and conditions at:
Anyone know if this provides any *real* protection against fraudulent chargebacks?
Sounds like it only applies to sales conducted through eBay. It also still seems like it only covers shipped "non-digital" goods.
I just received an email from paypal for unauthorized claim for two transactions completed with DP user through yahoo messenger. So I have $350 held by Paypal for now..
The user in question is: shandoli (at DigitalPoint)

Yahoo id: socratescasanova
paypal email : [email protected]
everyone, please be careful while dealing wit him
Too bad. Doesn't sound like that will help much. :td:
Thanks for the heads-up Jay.
I don't frequent DP much ... sounds like it is scam haven over there. What's up with that?
I've heard they make little to no effort to ban members even when it's obvious that members are scamming people. I guess all the scammers tell their scammer friends to come over and have a free lunch on the unsuspecting honest members.
Seems to be a phishing email scam going on with .ca and possibly other extensions: http://www.namepros.com/warnings-and-alerts/529277-caution-ca-owners.html#post3139255
hey, thanx for the tips..
surely needed those tips..
I don't know if this was posted here before, but it's sure a good read. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/breaking-gmail-security-flaw-more-domains-get-stollen/
Is it Gmail or something else?
The big problem with pretty much all the big web-based email platforms is that the sheer number of people using them encourages hackers to look for vulnerabilities to exploit.
I've heard enough vulnerabilities about all 3 (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail), that I really wouldn't recommend using any of the 3 for important business or domains. I use an ISP based email and have done so for the past 10 years without problems.
More often than not though, it's not vulnerabilities to blame, it's ignorant people who can't tell a legitimate email from a spoofed one. Easy to copy a web-based email provider's source code, send a spoofed email to an intended recipient, and record their username/password when the log into your "fake Gmail".
I just got an email from a "company" called WebnameSolution (infoATwebnamesolution.com). They are offering to sell me a LLLL.com for $200. By the way, I own the same LLLL.net, and it's developed.
Anyway, I did some research and came to a conclusion that the LLLL.com they're offering in Pending Delete status (they don't actually own the name). There were complaints on other forums from people who got scammed before.
Thanks for letting us know Samir.
I was doing some reading the past couple days and came across an article on Cnet discussing the supposed Gmail vulnerability: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-10108529-83.html .
It appears to have been a phishing scam afterall.
HUGE THEFT TO REPORT

Interesting discussion. Thanks for sharing!
His MSN: [email protected]
His Paypal: [email protected]
His name.com account code: 185594-abc0771
He try to "purchase" my 17 LLLL.com domain names for $500. Through his name.com account code, I found he is a scammer!
Another scammer that I found on another forum, so watch out for this guy from Romania:
First Name: Isvanca
Last Name: Mihai Alexandru
Address: Oituz 33 bl 33 ap 17
Just buy domain names from certified companies and you'll be ok!
Its been eight months that the above two names were stolen from me through an illicit transaction.
What is amazing is that even after contacting various parties at enom and documenting the theft and even thought this was not an isolated case by this thief, the names are just sitting there in the thief's enom account and I have been unable to recover them.
the 6sv.com seller is scammers,i bid winning in NP action ,but at this time,he sold via Sedo action,and no reply sh*t!
Elmos IS scammer
i send money to him but now i can not send message to him now him is offline ****!
him block my message
I posted this here (and paid for a sticky) because it seems like this guy is preying on Namepros members.. With how fast he's targetting them, having merely a post in the Warnings and Alerts section just won't get the word out soon enough...
Anyone with more info on this guy, please let us know. As EG.Domains, the NPer who alerted me to this scammer told me -- it's very probable that large holders of LLLL.coms are at the very top of his list of people to scam.

Thanks for the heads up man...I have actually heard about this through friends, but this is a little more verification that it was legit.. I will definitely show this to them too. Very interesting stuff, thanks!
