I received an email from a regular blog reader of Kickstart Commerce.
This person totally stoked about how they read my latest blog about finding and buying domain names.
They found an expired domain name to just die for, let them tell it.
I was super excited, as I usually am to hear from our readers, to hear of this reader’s good fortune find.
I was elated until I did my own research of the readers good fortune domain name.
The reader did almost everything correct based on their email.
The one missing piece the reader did not note was performing a search on the domain itself for negative or scam reviews using Google or another search engine.
Had the reader performed this simple step, the reader would have figured out that their so called good fortune of an expired domain name had been used by another company to run a scam.
I was quite surprised and heartbroken for the reader when I performed a search.
