Domain Name Scam?

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by MattUK, Apr 13, 2005.

    I was just wondering what you guys thought of this.
    A guy on ebay is selling 30-40 domain names all with PR between 1-2, yet all of the domains seem to have been registered in the last month and are showing no IBLs. Is this the old redirect trick again?

    I was suspicious when I saw the renewal date otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered checking for such a low PR, this guy is probably just buying domains for $5 and making 100%+ profit each time.

    I don't see a lot of value in them at all.

    at least the registrars are happy. I remember when .cc announced their fake $1 Millions sale for beauty.cc to get people to register every .cc out there for 50 bucks trying to hit the next jackpot.

    301 redirection
    if(eregi("googlebot",$HTTP_USER_AGENT))
    {
    header("Status: 301 Moved Permanently");
    header("Location: http://site.com");
    exit();
    }
    for example. But you'd still have to wait for toolbar pr to update which seems to take forever. So I'm not sure how he could get pr in under a month?
