Have you received an offer on your domain that seems too good to be true? A WHOIS security email that seems slightly out of the norm? A message from your registrar asking to confirm a password?

Don’t fall for it!

1) A broker sends you what seems to be a normal offer for one of your domains. They may offer a large amount right off the bat.
2) After they’ve made some exorbitant offer to you between 5 and 6 figures, they’ll ask you for a “certificate” to prove its worth.
3) Once you pay for the appraisal and send the certificate to the “broker”, they will:
  • Claim their buyer is no longer interested
  • Say that you took too long
