Got another one of those appraisal scam emails today. Luckily they land in spam folder now:

we are interested to buy your domain name AARR.COM and offer to buy it from you for 65% of the appraised market value.
As of now we accept appraisals from either one of the following leading appraisal companies:
If you already have an appraisal please forward it to us.
As soon as we have received your appraisal we will send you our payment (we use Paypal for amounts less than $2,000 and escrow.com for amounts above $2,000) as well as further instructions on how to complete the transfer of the domain name.
We appreciate your business,
Somehow they always send me different ones, but they all revolve around getting you to pay for an appraisal. It must be profitable for them since they keep doing it… I wish there was a way to track them down and ugh!
Thanks for information. Google and your post saved my money :))
It’s the middle site in the email that’s the culprit. I have emails that include pozde.com instead of pedma.com, and the sites are identical… registered in 2008, etc.
They appear to be trying to get your $22.95 via paypal… looks like a legit paypal button on the site, so not just phishing for credit card details.
Curious to see if they actually deliver a real appraisal, but I’m not giving them money to find out.
I did much better than you guys, being offered 80% of the appraisal value! Otherwise pretty much the same email, although on the up-side it did remind me of a domain that I had long forgotten. Still not sure about the exact mechanism of the scam… but somethinng about the email defintely smells bad (other bloggers suggest you respond to a fake paypal or sedo payment… and hand your domain over for free), who knows
Good to paranoid… Thanks for post, I just received same mail.
it is a great i learn allot how to earn $ every day please keep updating .
