    Limited .com advice please

    Hi all, I had a strange email today from a domain agency in China. They would have pulled my contact details from the registry list. It looks legit but basically saying they have a client that came to them this month in China that is registering all keyword relevant domains for their...

    ClickFrenzy take 2 ??
