More Scams and Drama on DNForum

Scams and Drama on DNf

Two of the most recent scam-attempts at DNForum —

Scam #1 – Member claiming to be a woman who had a tough childhood and struggling to raise her kids, posted a thread about how she lost her two-year old. She asks members to support her during this tough time and buy her domains.

Emotions and condolences start to flow — so do red-flags. Discussions take emotional turn and all of sudden it turns out the member is a 51 Year Old man. You can read the more dramatic version of this incident here on Acro’s blog.

Lesson – Never Take Things at Face Value.

Scam #2 – More stolen domains for sale and again the involvement of member 9MM — who also had been also trying to act as he was playing the investigator by having a contact with the scammers when the scammers claimed him to be part of the play.

I can’t say that 9MM is guilty but his activities are VERY suspicious. How can someone buy all the high-profile names costing big-bucks when he claims to be a kid of parents who are so poor that he and they are not even able to afford a phone. Something just doesn’t add-up. Investigation is on.

Why can’t these low-lives put in their creative brains to positive use rather than try to find ways to scam people and steal the things people have put in so much effort to earn in forst place?

    Here is a part of the answer:

    Out of great evil good is re-born.

    Evil has to exist otherwise how would good know that it is good if it would not be misused by Evil.

    Every one of us has the capability to become evil or good.

    Great post you have there.

    Keep up the GREAT Work

    Hi

    I happen to know this 9MM guy from namepros and hes not a very nice chap at all, very annoying and immature. He’s been banned there several times, once he was no sooner back from a 2 week ban when he was banned again.

    I would certainly think twice about doing business with him.

    -ES- — he is now banned at DNf. It doesn’t look like he is 16 but rather seems to be a part of a much bigger scam ring.
