    These guys all have a one way ticket to a far away place after racking in the GREED driven bucks for top keywords. Modeled after the RealNames and now CommonNames redirect servers with a BHO to take over the IE browser. Most just have nothing ...just the old Nigerian e-mail spam thing going for their schemes.

    I got the same email today, but in mine they said “We are targeting your industry today”. OOOOOOOH I’ve been targeted. Oh and they have “patented internet display technology”. I know I’m impressed. And I’m really impressed that it was sent from a bogus email address and the email header has a domain listed that is “coming soon”. And the IP address it was sent from is in Korea. I’d almost be willing to bet that if you call the number, you’ll get switched to a toll 900 number and rack up a Miss Cleo phone bill. And if you give them your credit card number, ooooh watch those charges add up. But then again, maybe anyone who would actually sign up for such a thing deserves it.

    “I get on my knees and pray, we don’t get fooled again!” – Who said that? I said that!

    Edited to add: Mine Came from according to the return address. Doesn’t look like that domain exists though. Go figure.
