He recibido esta extraña oferta por mi anterior dominio, y luego de consultarlo con el remitente (que exige anonimato), la publico:

Subject: Can I buy http://orihuela.blogspot.com/ ?
Would you be interested in selling
If so, how much would you take for it?
I notice that you have got a new site www.ecuaderno.com so I thought maybe you’d be willing to sell your old one.
If you want to know I’m interested in buying, please read on…..
I’m not a corporation, or a big company. I’m a new business (12 months old) running in the UK buying & selling German grand pianos. You can see my site at (omitido a petición del remitente). I am a 1-man company working 8 hours a day to get something going. The signs are good and I’m confident for the future.
I’m 24, still living with parents and I currently take £30 per week as a wage from the business. I have to reinvest most of the money so I can’t afford to take a good wage yet.
In case you haven’t worked it out yet, the reason I’d be wanting your site is so that I can turn it into a piano website and benefit from the high PR (google ranking) that your site has because of it’s links from other websites.
So that’s the situation. I’m a small guy, not a big guy.
As for a price, this is a risky venture. I don’t even know if it would help me at all. Google might work out my plan and ban my site. That would NOT be good at all.
If you would take $50 I’d send it straight to you via email as soon as you give me the login details and I’d updated the password. This might worry you. If you wanna chat on AIM to try and verify my honesty, you can get me at (omitido a petición del remitente) My business address and phone number is listed at (omitido a petición del remitente) so you’ll always know where I am. I wouldn’t risk my business reputation (you could cause me damage if you wanted, I’m sure) just for the sake of a website.
So there we have it. If you’ll take $50 I can pay you by Paypal.
How does that all sound to you?
Please let me know later

No tengo el menor interés en traspasar ese dominio y menos a ese precio tan irrisorio, pero el asunto me ha llamado la atención: ¿es un timo?
