Hi.

I have received an e-mail from domainsreserved.com offering to buy a domain in which I could be interested. However, I know sometimes these kind of e-mails are just to get your money and you get nothing.

How can I be sure that this company is a legal company and won't just get my money ?

Thanks.

If you received an unsolicited email from then, then that is spam I would never do business with a spammer.  If they are willing to spam, then what other unethical practices are they prepared to use?

Thanks, probably you are right. however the domain offered is very similar than the domain I own actually, so it could also be a kind of marketing, isn't it?

If you did not request anything from them, then it is spam.  It is not difficult to do targeting and custom generation of solicitations. how many other site also got spammed with an offer for a site similar to theirs?

Thanks. You are right. Now I checked this domain and it's free. So Now I'm sure it's spam.
Thanks for all.
