Well, I received a new chinese domain name scam this week.

Unlike the previous one I blogged about here, this one is much more primitive.

Here is the email I received

Hello
The domain name www.HEARTART.CN  is available for purchase.
Since you own this name in another extension, we thought
this name would be of interest to you.
I think,We could finish the transaction through SEDO.com a
international Domain trade agency
Through SEDO( www.sedo.com), you could make your offer at
http://www.sedo.com/search/details.php4?domain=HEARTART.CN
The price is $850
Thanks

So in essence, we are tlaking about doamins that have been registred with a .cn extension (China) and marketed to people hoping they will take up the price.

Checking the sedo.com site, the price offered is USD1700, not $850, another ploy to think you are getting a good deal.

This is another scam to be aware of, just delete it and walk away!
