If you’re a domainer you probably have gotten an email from RiversideDomain.com telling you about a domain that is soon to drop promising you that they can obtain it for you
Here is how the emails typically read:
My name is ___________ (name changes a lot) I came across your website while looking for potential interested parties for the domain name _____________ that will be placed sale in the next few days.
The domain name will be sold to the highest bidder and we thought this might be of interest to your business.
You can leave an offer by following the link below and one of our domain specialists will contact you with further details about the sale:
No new website or hosting would be needed, a quick and simple change of DNS servers would make the traffic from fortworthdui.com point to your existing
website and you would get a one year registration with the purchase, after this period all you would have to do is renew the domain name with your registrar
for around 10$/year.
I have been getting these emails for months.
Recently however, I and other domainers have been getting emails about one of the domains I own, domains that have registration dates into 2012 and are clearly not going to expire “in the next few days”
Some of the domain names that have recently appeared include:
I have also received phone calls from people who have received such emails to see if the domain is really for sale.
There are several names used in the email, Jake Forsythe, Robert Schmidt,, Jimmy Baggs, Emma Richards, Robert Brooks, John Kipley, Alexander Chase and even Edward Clark who is on the whois record for the domain name RiversideDomain.com.
Seems like they have more brokers than even Sedo.com.
The domain name is owned by “Riverside Domain Brokers” of Cheyenne Wyoming.
Today they started using a new URL as well NameItNow.info which sent out an email saying:
After coming across your website in the search engines I thought this domain might be of interest to you
and that you may wish to leave an offer because we are selling it will be sold off in the coming week
Today’s email from Nameitnow.info contained the domain name, xxxmedia.com, another domain I own, which doesn’t expire until Feburary 2012 and has as its admin contact none other than Edward Clark of “Riverside Domain Brokers” of Cheyenne Wyoming.
So I’m wondering if any of you have had any dealings with RiversideDomain.com or if you ever placed an order for a domain with them or know what their deal is because I sure can’t figure them out.
