While actually finishing my paper (I’ve been good tonight) I received my first prospective offer for I thought it may be too good to be true. The email I received is as follows:

Subject: (sent 07/26/06)
From: Opera Software


I found your domain for sale. Looks like this name has good potential. It’s
something I’m looking for.

Our company develops software so domain investing is not our main business.
Just additional way to generate income.

Please email me price for your domain name. If it’s reasonable we’ll do

If you have other domain names for sale please send us the complete list with prices for consideration.

Looking forward to do business with you.

Fortunately for me I did a google search for this Robert Hegglund guy and came up with this link and this one. So it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting $10,000 for this domain yet. Oh well.

Lesson of the day: Writing papers can even be interrupted by fraudulent emails.
