Scammers target domain name owners
The Register writes of a new spam-based scam where fraudsters are targeting domain owners. The scam is supposedly sophisticated and typically begins with an email message to domain owners offering to purchase a domain. Prospective victims are directed to a forum ostensibly set-up to discuss domain appraisal services. Potential victims are asked to purchase domain appraisal software for $99, and even if paid for, the scammers renege on promises.
