Fishy Email received

I received the following email from "Shawn" of "Global Domains International" <globaldomainsin@ymail.com>.

Quote:
Hello,

I have the .COM version of your domain name xn--[deleted].biz for sale.

Would you be interested in buying the domain for $250 seeing as though you own the same domain but in another extension ?

We can use Escrow for the transfer and I will cover the fees.

Let me know
Thankyou
Shawn.

It sounded like a decent deal. The only problem is, the .com version of this IDN is variant blocked.

Re: Fishy Email received

BTW, Global Domains International is the name of a company that runs .ws registry. But I don't think the two are related at all.

Of course, there is a small possibility that this guy actually meant .WS and not .COM. But you know...

Nor would they use a .com email address, I guess.
