Should I report a scammers domain?

by Richard Tunnah 4 replies
I've become aware of a scammer on here and online. They are using a false name and no longer valid phone number. They have failed to respond to emails from me to both their paypal addy and other contact addy. However their contact addy refers to a website that again appears to be scamming. Should I just report the issue to the domain company? Not something I would normally consider but I hate people ripping other people off!!

    If you truly suspect scamming going on, I would suggest reporting it to his webhost first.

    Scamming in what way?
    Has the site scammed you personally? DO they owe you money or a product?
    I hate when someone says "they didn't respond to emails from me (and/or paypal).
    Earlier this year I was hospitalized without notice and was in for almost a month. During that time I received literally hundreds of calls and emails that I was not able to answer in a timely manner.
    Was I scamming anyone? no.
    I was incapacitated.
    Now, maybe this person really is scamming ,I don't know, but I do know that people should not jumpt to conclusions without proff.

      Other situations may include vacation. When I'm out of town, I sometimes don't have Internet access, so eMails aren't going to be answered.

      Also, eMail is not always reliable. Spam filters eat messages. And, telling people to "check their junk folder" is not always effective either; if a message gets blocked at the server level, the message would never have gotten to the intended recipient so it would not have gone into his or her junk folder. Some spam blockers just delete a message, rather than bouncing it back, because so many spammers use fake or forged addresses.

      Also, were the contact eMails a pre-sale or post-sale inquiry? Some people or companies may prioritize messages from existing customers. So, people who have paid for a product or service will get priority handling over someone who is inquiring about buying.

    If they are committing fraud, then yes, you should report them. They're not doing anyone any good good by ripping people off, and are in fact acting criminally.
