I hate spam like anyone else.
I really hate phuckers who try to make money off of innocent people over the Internet.
Take for instance this “solicitation” I just got from this A$$hole named firstname.lastname@example.org. (That’s the address it was purportedly sent from). Their physical address allegedly is: 4310 W. 190th St. Suite # 63546 Torrance, CA 90504
He wants to offer me a deal of a one year renewal on a domain I’m letting go of, which I could have renewed for $9 if I wanted it, and offering me the low cost price of $75. I can pay $499 for a lifetime renewal.
THIS IS A COMPLETE SCAM. THIS GUY IS A CROOK. IF YOU GET A MESSAGE FROM HIM LIKE THE ONE HERE, I have a sample provided of the message you can send back to him.
Look at the thing they sent me. There’s no name for their business listed. In fine print, it says you can’t hold them responsible if you are stupid enough to go for this. It is completely bogus. I have half a mind to actually send them in the fax and see what they send back. But they’ve wasted enough time today.
