This is an example of what I have just received and my response:

Remove me from your list of contacts.

This is spam - unsolicited and unwanted.

Continuing to send me messages will prompt me to take all and any legal action at my disposal including contacting your hosting company and getting your domain, email, and hosting shut down.

This notice serves as your only warning.

Hello, this is Mark Sittler from Vastus Domains.

We are planning to sell (-).com in the next couple of days.
Since you already own (-).net I thought you might be interested
in for-sales.com to expand your business.

There is only a one time fee for (-).com.
The payment is safe and secure courtesy of our partner services
at Escrow.com. You get a year of registration and also have the option
to forward for-sales.com to for-sales.net at no additional cost.

If you do have an interest in buying (-).com, please visit:
https://vastusdomains.com/7umeVT

Sincerelly,

Mark Sittler

There is a great possibility that these were the types of communications passed on to GoDaddy.

Everything in this email points back to enom.

I do not quite understand. If you pay godaddy the money as they required, then you are OK to stay at godaddy. Is that what godaddy wants?

While I hate spam, I hate domainers who send out unsolicited emails asking to buy their names, and what's more they do not include prices. Even worse than that you have those domainers who monitor every extension on the drop an then offer to aquire it for you. The sort of behaviour should come with capital punishment as it undermines the genuine domain asset management companies.

However.... GoDaddy and EVERYTHING about them is rotten to the core, and while I do not wish to upset -=DCG=- on this, but GD has done more damage to the domain industry than Cybersquatters, and they continue to bite the hand that feeds them. Elephant shooting aside, Bob Parson needs to grow the hell up. For those in the UK.. GoDaddy is the Ryanair of Domaining.

My advice to the Spammer, would be to stop spamming, but also move your domains elsewhere.
