A simple inquiry about hiring a domain broker resulted in spam emails arriving daily.


The company is flippa.com, they appeared genuine but have caused me much grief and won't stop.


Had they provided the service they offered, they could had a real, money paying customer.


Getting a new email account is not that easy without a telephone number, which I do not have.


I now trust no online domain services except the one I use to register my domains.

You could create a filter on your mail so anything that comes from them is placed automatically in your trash, where it belongs.

Maybe it's not what you want but Yandex Mail is one of the few left that works without a phone number...

Choose "I don't have a mobile phone number"

Web of Trust has this to say about it: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/flippa.com?utm_source=addon&utm_content=popup-donuts

and almost every review has bad things to say about it.
