    I also got one of the above E-mails today for one of my domains addressed as coming from Dr. Stewart. They appear to have a lot of "Doctors" working for them

    Looks like they are trying a variation of the Nigeria mutli-millions scam, just using their own appraisal service to make money instead of you having to hire Nigerian lawyers to try and collect your loot.

    I have also tried but didn't pay for appraisal. They sent a mail a year back or so also. And asked me to send sample email to 50-100 buyers. (they don't reveal identity). I have done so. For steeldesign.org 2 buyers said (those were buyers???). 300$. Both insisted for apparisal. I requesed them to do apparisal themself . Nobody replied thereafter :-)

    I got one here. Note, it is not rock.com any more.


    ===========================================
    Hi there,

    I have found your domain for sale (presumes.com). I prefer to make all deals direct
    without domain brokers so I've decided to contact you via email. (I've
    found your email address via WHO IS).

    Is this domain still available for sale? I'm interested in purchasing.
    If
    it's still available for sale please email me your asking price.

    If you have other good domains for sale feel free to email me the full
    list
    with asking prices.

    If I can afford your domain I'll contact you. Please don't send me
    multiple
    emails if you don't receive a reply from me and keep my email address
    confidential.

    Just email me your asking price. If I decide to buy I'll contact you as
    soon as possible.

    I can send you money via PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account I
    can
    send you the funds by a certified check or wire transfer.

    Best Regards,

    Andrew Corwin

    they don't insist on appraisal on the first one, they try to get you excited about a sale first - then drop the "all we need is an appraisal" line after.
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    No, this is also a scam. I got the exact same email from Andew Corwin, and after telling him

    "...Also feel free to get an independent appraisal on the domain if you need to establish a value. Having been scammed by the likes of EverydayIncome.com in the past, I no longer pay for these appraisals myself. If you buy the domain, I would happily refund you the cost of the appraisal if you get one "

    surprisingly enough, he hasn't replied....

    So who's up for a class action lawsuit?!!

    Someone needs to report this to the IP owner from wherever these emails are being sent from and get him thrown off.
