Of course you guys all know @GeorgeK our friendly Canadian domainer


I would pick Leap.com as the domain the offer came in on.

Without saying the domain name, I will verify that it wasn't a .ca. :cool:

And Facebook/Meta marketcap today is just under $1 Trillion.

So that clip about a Billion dollars isn't even cool anymore.

And kidding aside, I hope George gets his price and we can see which domain, and who the buyer is!  :)

That's a very nice offer.   Are you still negotiating with them? 

if it's leap then is the offer from this company?

After further analysis, I've determined that the offer was FRAUDULENT. The domain that sent the offer was a typosquatted version of a real company (changing an 'i" to a "l" to make it seem it came from a VC).

Not sure what their end game was, since my deals go through lawyers.

I've reported the relevant domain name to the abuse department of the relevant registrar, to get it shut down.

This unfortunate situation smells a bit like the fake broker that tried but failed to scam me and others:

These scammers need to pick less sophisticated targets as their potential victims.

Bummer. Thanks for the update though.

Scammers are upping their game....I'm quite vigilant, so if it could temporarily fool me, a lot of other folks would be completely fooled by their scam.

I don't want to give tips that would help scammers improve their "pitch" even more, but one should definitely examine email headers carefully, and check anything that looks suspicious via WHOIS, phone calls, and other methods.
