Um, I got an email today........he said he was the owner of http://www.dosgames.com , and said his name was Maximo or something........is this really you? I doubt it... no offence, but your not this nice......nor is anybody else I know/have known. Besides, common sense should tell me that you would've PM'ed me or something....I think it's just somebody who wants to own the domain http://www.dosgames.tk . Besides, you're to concerned w/bandwidth to do this... Let me post the email here:
Quote:
Dear Sir or Madam
Hello my name is Maximo i am the manger at www.dosgames.com im im very impressed with your webpage www.dosgames.tk but understand that you are only using a geocities domain ... and dont actually own the domain.Im willing to make you an offer whould you like to group up with our website i can pay for your domain name www,dosgames.tk for 3 years that way you wont have to use geocites you will own the name www.dosgames.tk ... the only catch is if you can help promote our www.dosgames.com by having 1 of our banners on your webpage we will supply you with that after we pay for your domain name ... If you interested in our offer follow the following instructions below

2)Or you can give us your email address and password that you use to log into your www.tk account and we can pay for it that way.. this whould be the best way that way you dont have to unregister the account.. and you can allways change your password in the future.

3) as soon as you have done one of the above email me straight away so i can go to the www.tk site and pay for your registration ill pay by using my mastercard,all we ask if you can just put one of our banners on your site .. we do look foward to working as a team in the future .. shall our sites be the best on the web Happy

**I posted this just in case anybody else got a somewhat similar email, and I want to make sure it's not emmzee before I reply a somewhat insulting and hurtful email back Malevolent Oh yeah, I just realized, emmzee also knows that I am a guy, definitely not a 'sir' or 'madam'

K0 beat me to this one. Emmzee's real name isn't Maximo anyhow, it's a scam to get your .tk address, don't buy into it.

What kind of freaks would name their son Maximo........and I am/was 95% sure it's not him. I thought Maximo could be a different alias that emmzee used when he first got his email'r somethin'...

Well, I would say 'yes', but first I want to make sure emmzee didn't send it to me (I know he didn't, but emmzee has yet to respond). I just don't want to do something irrational on accident...

Well, it most likely isn't emmzee then. He uses the e-mail address webmaster@dosgames.com when writing to someone about issues concerning the website. One suspicion I did have is that it is his sponcer was attempting to do business with your site but why would t/s/he/y use a hotmail address? And further more why the bad grammer? (doesn't make a very good first impression, something business people strive to do) And if s/he's not a business person then why e-mail you that in the first place?

Hold the yelling, this is more of a mystery then a spam case. I'll query the guy to see what the point of the e-mail was.

Don't tell him what that we know it wasn't the real webmaster. It could get kind of fun.

hey, we were talking about this in school. How porn websites take names that people would go to like by accident! Like they had segasage.com, when a popular cheat website was segasages.com (I'm the dumbass who does segasage first on accident Confuzzled ) so think it could be a "bad" site?
