Having Fun With A Random Domain Offer Email

Jan 27 2010

We all get emails every day from people looking to sell us names.  Usually I ignore them, sometimes I thank them, other times I play with them.  Yesterday, I decided  to play with one and basically this was the exchange.

What is Skype, how about $2 Million?  I need to close this quickly I just got some money from a

friend in Zimbabwe who is about to send me $100 million and I need to move it and launder it

through some domain names.

I haven’t heard back since then but I still think $5 million for a 5 letter .cn name that could be

taken by the government at any time is a pretty good investment.  Oh well, his loss
