    Dear Sir/madam,

    CARBREAKER.COM - US$620

    Please note that after years, the registration on the domain name
    CARBREAKER.COM was not renewed and this domain had become available to register.

    Consequently, we have been approached to market this domain name that has been tracked and registered by a client. As a result, CARBREAKER.COM is now available from us for IMMEDIATE transfer.

    This is a VALUABLE and HIGH PROFILE domain and we believe that this
    development could be of genuine interest and benefit to your operation. Please note that the domain name market is extremely solid at the moment and similar domains are currently selling on afternic.com, greatdomains.com (domain auction sites) and by domain
    name brokers, in some cases, for many thousands of US dollars.

    Please note that transfers take just 15 minutes and are extremely
    straightforward - absolutely NO technical knowledge required!

    For our client's peace of mind, we use an escrow service for all
    transactions and domains are ALWAYS secured by the buyer prior to us
    receiving any funds. We pay all fees connected with the escrow process.

    If you would like to use WWW.CARBREAKER.COM for your online business, please contact us at your earliest convenience. We will be on hand should you require any further assistance or information.

    We thank you for your attention and sincerely apologise if this e-mail
    has not been of interest to you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Kelly
    Marketing

    Kelly,
    I get those things daily for different domains. In ours, it is always something related to our sites....for example, with our thmedia.net site, they will try and sell us something like mediamarketing.com It almost always has a keword from our domain name in it...do you have a 'car' or 'breakers' site [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    If you get her real e-mail address then enter it in some of those Freebee sites e-mail lists and a few mortgage -free credit check -porn lists and she'll get bombed for sure.

    Im not Kelly [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] Kelly is the spammer!

    Yes, we have car domains and the email they sent to is only used for domain registrations [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    But still, the thing I found most amusing about the email was the fact that some idiot thinks CARBREAKERS is a GREAT name!
    lol

    I cant even figure out what it is supposed to mean!
