We didn’t know that domain name scam still existed today. Check this out:

The OFT received complaints that Swansea-based Internet
Registrations Bureau Limited, trading as Euro Web Designs, was
contacting firms and claiming an unnamed third party was interested in
registering a domain name similar to their business name.

helpfully offered to secure the domain name but told companies that
they only had a limited period of time to do so before it would be
offered to the third party.

The OFT asked IRBL to provide evidence that these third parties existed but the company was unable to do so.
