School domain names scam?
My ICT Network Manager had an interesting and yet disturbing phone call today. It was from a company claiming that they’ve just refused someone who had tried to buy up domain names using the schools’ name. They said that they were refusing the request. However, at no time did they push or try to sell the domain names to us.
So it leaves us in a quandary:
- Is this some sort of a scam and other schools have been targeted?
- Is there a company or individual out there trying to use domain names with school names in to lure people (and children) into their sites
- Is someone trying to deflame our school?
- Is it something worse?
I just wondered if anyone else has had similar phone calls?
