    I know this has been brought up before, but I could not fiond the thread, and if it saves someone a headache, it won't hurt to have another.

    this happened to me today, and luckily I am not too stupid to fall for it.

    So, I own a domain, and I get an email that says something like this.

    To which I replied:

    This was his answer back:

    People, this is a tactic to get you to purchase their useless appraisals.

    Here is what I told him.

    It has now been hours, and no reply.

    Just don't get caught in this type of scam. If anyone is interested in his email address, just PM me. I would be happy to hand it out.SEMrush

    Translation:

    * I sell bread
    - sounds cool
    * I don't have a price in mind yet, but please make an offer
    - Ah ok. I got this other company that can give us a useless estimate, split the costs?
    * Yeah cool, always wondered what my $1 bread was worth!
    - Okay. they have 'guessed' your bread is worth $5. I think it is too high for me, I must pass. Their services costed me $500. your bill for $250 has been sent to you.
    * Okay, nice doing business with you!
    - no problem!


    Anyone that want to send me money is free to do so, just don't ask me to send money first!
