If you receive an email like the following, trash it without giving it a
second thought:

---------------------------------------------
Dear sir,

we are interested to buy your domain name XXXX.COM and offer to buy it
from you for  65% of the appraised market value.

As of now we accept appraisals from either one of the following leading
appraisal companies:

sedo.com
pedma.com
accuratedomains.com

If you already have an appraisal please forward it to us.

As soon as we have received your appraisal we will send you our payment
(we use Paypal for amounts less than $2,000 and escrow.com for amounts
above $2,000) as well as further instructions on how to complete the
transfer of the domain name.

We appreciate your business,

Thanks,
P. Miller

I wasted my time responding with this:

"Domain appraisals are worthless. If you really want to buy my domain
name then make me an offer. I'm not going to spend my money on an
appraisal to satisfy someone I don't even know and who is under no
obligation to follow through with an actual purchase. If you want the
name then you pay for the appraisal. "

My reply bounced with, "Delivery to the following recipients failed."
