I just got an email from someone using a free email address saying they want to buy the domain for $500. Just their name and a generic free email address. For the heck of it, I went to the domain url and it's currently being auctioned by the registrar, current bid only $12, since I didn't renew it.
so... I'm thinking this is some kind of scam, because the "interested" person could clearly have typed in the url and bid on it himself rather than getting my whois info.
has anyone experienced this sort of thing? I've had shady buyers interested in domains before but not one that was up at auction.
