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 die for, let them tell it.
I was super excited, as I usually am, to hear from our readers about this reader’s good fortune find.
I was elated until I researched the readers’ good fortune domain name.
The reader did almost everything correctly 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 another company had used their so-called good fortune of an expired domain name to run a scam.
I was surprised and heartbroken for the reader when I searched.
