“Small time domain broker” : A new name for an old disease

Directnic

Phuck all spammers.

Domain spam is a disease, and serial spammers are seeking new introduction lines, getting more creative.

As there is no certification about domain brokerage, just a loose definition of activities performed by a middle-person, domain spammers are now taking advantage of that.

A recent flow of domain spam now uses the term “small time domain broker.

What that means, is that someone is supposedly dabbing in brokering domains, doing that as a part time job.

The truth is, there is no real brokerage of any domains, just the same old attempt to peddle useless junk that approximates existing domain names, owned by the recipient of the email.

One such spam arrived from Zotys.com, a fresh registration, which forwards to Exdomains.net. It is, therefore, logical to assume that Exdomains.net is the real sender behind the “small time domain broker” spam.

The domains listed at Exdomains.net belong to a registrant from Croatia. Whether this is a paid promotion or a direct association with the spammer, it’s of little difference to the victims of spam!

In a similar fashion, spam from another fresh registration, Fourhot.com, forwards to Exadomains.org, with the same landing page, peddling garbage for sale.

These phuckstick spammers use disposable Yahoo! emails to hide their location, and NameCheap as their domain registrar.

If you receive any such emails, forward them to abuse@namecheap.com.

    There are so many so called “domain brokers” out there now and “domain day traders”.
    They have no idea what it takes to be a “domain Investor”! IMO

    Just received one. They asked whether I had “any plans for somename.com” and after I said I didn´t know what they were talking about they said “hey, thanks for responding, anyway, we have some names for sale”. Complete garbage – forwarded to Namecheap abuse.
