For the past months I have been receiving offers to buy from an assortment of email accounts with similar writing style, similar typos, and considering the sheer volume of messages, it feels like desperation on their part.

As I said in My little SPAM collection I do not, nor have I been interested in owning, the dot com version of this same domain, since this is, after all, just my personal site which started as a joke on a game I haven’t played in close to a decade.

The domain

During all of this (ongoing) story, the whois of looked more or less like this

Registry Domain ID: 1811259001_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN
Registrar WHOIS Server:
Registrar URL:
Updated Date: 2023-09-08T11:06:39Z

Registry Expiry Date: 2023-06-27T13:07:41Z
Registrar:, LLC
Registrar IANA ID: 146
Domain Status: pendingDelete

It looks the domain is about to expire as per the pendingDelete status so I will just ignore any and all messages until it is free or renewed. Then I may respond to all the email accounts messaging me as show on the next section.

Edit: I didn’t. Too lazy. Also, the scammers have renewed the domain for one more year, so I will wait to make an update post later this year with attempt 2. For completeness sake, here is the whois data as of today:

The email messages

As of the last few days I have received no less than an email a day asking if I was interested in purchasing the dot com version of the domain. With each new email the tone seems to subtly change. At first is just a “hey you” kind of thing:

Hey there!

We noticed that you own Do you have any interest in Only the name is on sale, it does not have a website.

If you are not interested, have a nice day and sorry to bother you about this.
Viva Tetrick

Notice the name of the person does not match the origin email. On the next email they fixed it:


We noticed that you own Do you have any interest in If so please let us know and we will get back to you with the full details.

In any case, I wish you a great day! Matilda Hooley

Next time they claim their dot com domain is getting traffic, despite not ever having any site hosted there. To prevent any confusion, no name is signing this email.


I have noticed a significant increase in traffic to my domain and decided to conduct some online research. It came to my attention that you also operate a website with similar Keywords.

I would like to inquire if acquiring this domain name from us could be beneficial for you. I kindly request you to provide a response to this email to let me know your thoughts. Your reply would be highly appreciated.

Last so far, another email where the name signing the message does not match the address.

Hello, Do you like to own heavydeck com? You already possess .net version, therefore maybe you’ll be interested.

Sincere greetings,

Now they are diversifying the email domains, maybe to look more legit:

This “” premium domain name is Now available for acquisition.

This is a dotcom name, and dotcom is the most popular, commonly used web extension. and thought you might want to upgrade.

Please let me know if you want to know more about This domain name or have any Offers in mind.

Best regards,
Ahmed Gamal

Now they try to look more professional, adding a “Consultant” title.

I own the domain name and am looking to sell it.
The .com extension can help build your brand identity better. A .com extension can contribute to better building your brand identity and can also help you differentiate yourself from your competitors and show your uniqueness.

Please let me know if you have any offer ($) or have any questions?

Bad English, and a different account each time. If this is a bot doing things props for having some diversity on the messages. If this is a human, next time you send a message, please add an eggplant emoji “🍆” as the greeting and I might give you an answer.

Back to plain old normal people. I’m still waiting for the 🍆 lady!

Hi there,
Would you be interested in buying/owning the website name so you can redirect it to your website?

Kind regards,

Now back to a “consultant” which happens to have a phone number but uses a plain old GMail account. Also, my family is doing well, thanks.

I hope you and your family are doing well.

I am reaching out regarding a premium domain name “HeavyDeck.Com”, now we are ready to sell the domain name to the new owner.

Let us know if you are interested in acquiring the domain name?

Emma Ava Sr. Domain Consultant - Client Relations
Emma Ava (646-844-1126)

That phone number is lacking an international prefix, and it feels quite natural to type on the numpad, as if someone typed at “random” with one hand or otherwise this is a very lucky consultant.

A few days later and the domain is renewed, and an apparent final message with a “we give up” is sent to me.

I just want to be sure you read this one last time, but if you don’t care, you may disregard it once again, and this will also be the last message.

I apologize if this is bothering you and wish you much happiness and success.

I hope they do give up and stop bothering me. Let’s see if when the next expiration date 2024-09-14T18:20:18Z is close, they will bother me again or not.

I find it hard to believe many individuals and corporations own the same name at the same time and are able to sell it all the same.

I’m still waiting for an email with an 🍆 eggplant emoji. I refuse to answer any offer without the 🍆 in the body.
