Walfan Wants Your LLL.com at a Discount

6

When I received my first email from Walfan this morning, I was tempted to post an article about it. When I received the second email, I decided to post it to offer some advice.

Apparently, “Walfan” wants to buy my LLL.com domain names and is requesting a special discount! Here are the emails I was sent regarding SHS.com and KJP.com (exact same content except for the names):

Hi,
   I’d like to buy shs.com .Excuse me,is it available for sale? What’s the transfer price about it.I’m a personal domain investor.Please give me a discount price if you could . Thanks a lot

Best regards,
           Walfan

Three tips for Walfan:

  • Fix the atrocious formatting and grammar.
  • Don’t send the exact same email to the same people.
  • Don’t ask for a discount.

    I got that one too. Thought I was special (which I am!). ;) But I’d guess now that everyone with an LLL got it also. Oh those spammers!

      Probably sends out massive amounts and only responds to the responses with names he really wants.

      Easy fixes:

      1) Create filter to block email address
      2) Report spam email to spam@uce.gov
      3) File spam report with hosting company

    Terrible email indeed. However, are you certain that he’s not sending all of these out manually/individually, instead of using a bulk mailer? If he’s NOT using any type of automated software such a bulk mailer or email harvester/scraper, it wouldn’t qualify as spam under the current can-spam laws, no matter how crappy the grammar. Unless of course you request for him never to email you again, and he emails you again.
