    I got a certificate scam message today

    I got this certificate scam today. Didn’t know it was a scam until I googled the lawyers handle, “elisalawyer”.
    I was excited at first cause theY wanted to buy my old domain for 50k. They gave all these instructions to get the money , which seemed stupid. I came across this community page discussing it. Didn’t know about this community until now . I’m not sure what their end game is. At some point they probably ask for money . I wish I hadn’t initially replied to them. Now they got my real email address

    @Foofan It's a very common scam that's been around for years. They will offer to buy your domain for a certain price then direct you to a domain name appraisal service (which they own) where you'll have to pay for an appraisal. The appraisal will come back a lot lower than they offered and they will not buy it.
