Funny thing, scammers

Commentary Jul 31, 2004

There’s a bunch calling themselves “The European Domain Bureau” phoning companies telling them that “someone” is trying to register domains in the .com and .net top level domains (or wherever) similar to their company names, and that they would be prepared to register the domains on your behalf, but you had to do it NOW (for 200 pounds sterling per domain), and you would have NO legal recourse if someone else registered your domains.

Right.

I wonder how many unknowing people they’ve caught so far?
