The transaction amount was in starting 6 figures and the moment I initiated the transaction, it took less than 2 hours for another email to arrive from which says the following:

If anyone reads the English grammar, one can spot that it’s poorly written English and is registered just 2 days ago. Also in the footer, the domain used is which is available for hand registration!

This scammer is such a dumb person that after initiating the transaction, how can the 6 figure payment be sent from his/her end and receive by which they approve it within 2 hours and notify me to transfer and reply via email only. Everything well within 2 hours. Also, at, the status is showing that “Awaiting Payment Arrival”.

So you idiot using fake name and phishing email, I’m not going to be your victim and you’re already been notified to and this post will make fellow domain investors aware of this dirty trick in potentially looting valuable assets.

Thank you Abdul!

This is a great reminder to carefully read and check the origin of emails. Earlier this year for a U.S. passport renewal, (Through the U.S. Postal Service office), I had to signup to receive text updates for delivery information. A few days later I received a text from “them” with a USPS tracking number and a link.

The URL was off so I typed in the official “”, entered in the tracking number and their reply was that it was a tracking number know to be used in scams!

Hey Abdul, Your content relevant to the domain industry is a gem. I am new to this industry and have been struggling to decide where to put domain names in the marketplace as Pakistan doesn’t have PayPal support. Also, where can Chinese domains having Chinese characters be sold? Thanks
