Alert : scam continues to seek potential victims with cheap domain “Chips”

Directnic scam.

A scam operating from, continues to seek potential victims among buyers of domain “Chips.”

Priced well below market averages, the LLLL .com domains are being offered via email to various domain investors.

There is no indication whatsoever that these domains are owned or brokered by the scammers behind, a domain with a fake WHOIS.

Whether these domains are stolen or not, is not clear; as only accepts PayPal, it’s impossible to tell whether they are in a position to even transfer those domains to a victim buyer.

Here’s a recent sample email from these scammers:

    This guy also went by Mohammed, surprised he has not been shut down by the registar he was scamming about 2 months ago, many names were Media Options, reported it to them, they knew about it, guess they didn’t want to take it to a higher level.

    so this guy continues to this day, I am sure he has ripped off many people, and who is going to touch him in the middle east or wherever he resides.

  2. Does not even know what chips are!
    No thanks!
