If you have a contact form or your email is public somewhere odds are you have gotten this message. Judging from the 300 or so emails we have gotten letting us know about it I am guessing its pretty widespread:

Hi,

My name is Dominic Fernandez, and I came across your contact information
while reading through The ShoeMoney Blog. I don’t know your opinion of his
advice, but I think his advice is very insightful and obviously very
profitable if applied to the right opportunity.

Finding the right opportunity however is something Jeremy does not dwell on
too much, and does not mention (with good reason) most of the current
opportunities he is working on.

In an effort to find a great opportunity to earn money with I have sourced
the list of all Websites owned by Shoemoney (3400+ Domains). I need to raise
a little extra funds to complete the transaction and hence I will be making
a few copies of this data available for sale. I obviously do not want too
many copies of this Data to get out and hence will be limiting the sale to
only a select few people.

If you are interested in this Data, let me know and we can discuss the
matter further.

Thank you,

Dominic

Feel free to purchase the list from Dominic. It should be pretty awesome… especially considering I dont own 3400 domains… or even close to it.

Thanks to all who have contacted us about this. People try to profit all the time off our brand =(. Its the way it goes… If someone actually gets this persons real information I would love to have it.

  1. I blacklisted the email after I emailed you, these guys need to find better ways to make money online… or at least attempt to…

      1. Yup, that is what I am thinking. Now Show will have a bunch of little weird things happen in result of Dennis The Poo.

  2. Yep, I actually got 2 and was about to forward it to you. I have an IP address for him also from my contact form which reads:

    124.78.136.# (ChinaNet Shanghai Province Network). The other IP I have reads 154.5.61.# which is from Africa according to the Whois database.

  3. I received this today also.

    3400+ websites would be pretty awesome, but not the information about 3400 sites.

    Somehow I don’t think I’ll be purchasing this information.

    Cheers,
    Shane

  4. Well, it’s pretty clear to me that this guy is on to you big guy.

    You’ve got to come clean with your fans now.

    I mean, Liberace finally told all. So did Cybill Shepherd.

    We, your loyal fans, expect nothing less from our hero.

    I’ve already ordered and received my copy of the list.

    At first glance, it looks like a lot more than 3400 domains. But, it also looks like the New York City phone book.

  5. Interesting, but this is not exactly rocket science there are a few websites out there that enable you to purchase this information but its a little pricey…

    @Jeremy I would guess if it was any cutting edge project or site you would be using some type domain privacy settings…

    also i would guess the figure closer to 200…

  6. I think Jeremy should sell this guy his list of domains for a hefty price 🙂 lol.. At least this way Jeremy would be making money off it :p

  7. Sorry Jeremy, I got the email from this douche too and emailed you a copy this morning before I checked the blog and saw that you were already on top of it.

    Oh everybody, I bought the list and will sell it to you for half price. Just F’n around. Carry on.

  8. Dominic sounds like a great guy. Who would of known Jeremy owns such large & profitable sites such as Google, Yahoo, Youtube, and Facebook. Don’t forget several hundred porn sites too 😉

    That’s probably exactly what you’d get with that list too…

  9. Such information is freely available on DomainTools if someone is willing to pay the price…I don’t see the point in this exercise however.

  10. Damn! I got this email too. I was trying to play along with the guy to see what other info I could get out of him before forwarding it all to you Jeremy, but he seems to have been scared off.

  11. …but Jeremy, the UBER affiliate trick would be if you posted this email yourself to all of your subscribers, filled with bullshit domains (3400+), earn some money, then announce on blog that those are fake and that you have nothing to do with it, and that it’s some China guy spammer 🙂

    …nah, I know this isn’t the situation, but just think about how profitable (on the short term) this would be 🙂

    LOL

    1. uber affiliate trick? sounds like a retard affiliate trick. And to make what? 20 bucks?

  12. I got a couple emails like that. Yahoo! Spam Filter was putting them into the Spam Folder. Probably completely filtered out the later emails after the first two.

  13. @Purposeinc I’m sure you just have to post your email address in one or two of the posts and you will get the next one…

    I would assume they crawled the ShoeMoney forums for careless discussions that included personal information such email addresses…

  14. This email was a boring way to start my Sunday, but this post certainly made it better ……. lol poor guy!

  15. I got this today as well, and rolled my eyes at it.

    It’s amazing that people still think the way to become a successful internet marketeer is to copy other people rather than think for themselves. I fully expect to see this list for sale on digitalpoint in the next few days.

  16. lol..its so funny. I just got the email, so I was going to send it to you, but then I wanted to make sure you did not already post about it. I came over to your blog, and it is posted.

    I’m not purchasing it, I knew it was all bogus.

  17. I’ve seen some of your sites and they suck. Who in the hell would want to waste their time looking at 3400.

    🙂

  18. shoooot!! shoe, i did receive this email sometime ago in one of my inboxes!! i really cant recall but I was least bothered. I think I can pull out the real info. Well, ill update you if i can get my hands on it. take it easy!

  19. Thank you for this. This is very informative and helpful. The internet is full of shitty scammers like this one. I wonder how he can look at himself in the mirror each day.

  20. I’m amazed 300 people actually read the message. Good to know people are looking out for your good name, isn’t it?

  21. I got that email too…
    Replied with:
    Please use Facebook Campaign!, I heard you good at it. Mr. Poo…

    [IP 154.5.61.130]

  22. I’m afraid I was one of the people who emailed you.

    I was going to say I think the guy got my email from commenting on this blog but he also sent me an email from the contact form of another blog I own that I have never left on a comment before, eveer.

  23. There are two major milestones of making it. First, you have to get over 100 spam comments a day. That’s the little one. The next is being a target for a scam.

    Shoe, I know you know it already but this guy is more supporting evidence that you’ve made the big time.

  24. This is how it goes these days. A lot of the spamming comes from China these days. They are always trying to make a quick buck.

  25. “Dear Santa Shoemoney,

    For Christmas, I would like a domain from your bag. I was told you had 3400, and I know you wouldn’t mind parting with one.

    Thanks Santa Shoemoney. You’re the best!

    Oh, I want a puppy too. Thanks again!”

    🙂

  26. That’s nice. I have 3600+ domains, and I’m thinking to sell them. Hey, Jer, do you want to buy them? Making the collection bigger.
