Not so fast. Usually the names they promote are unregistered. They just identify them as available and try to pre-sell them. These guys can be a very useful free research tool!

Happened to me two times, same identity, same price and they were still in the snap procedure.

If I recall correctly this is related to an idnf'er.

You are right. I got a letter "selling" a .com which I was holding the .net
Turned out the .com was wide open and available for registration.
