Alex Verdea – Domain Name Squatting

Alex Verdea wants to take you to the cleaner, asking you to pay a few thousand dollars for a domain name he is prospecting on. This is nothing new. Lots of people will buy alternatives to popular domain names and then email the registrants asking for a few thousand dollars in return for giving them the domain name.

My advice? Steer clear. Here are a few such emails:



Hello,

Alex Verdea – Domain Name Scam

I find it funny that they have a note on their contact form asking people not to spam them, when that is what they are doing to others:

*Note: We log and maintain a list of all visitors/IP addresses that access our site. Please do NOT SPAM.
