I sent an email to abuse at mail dot com because I saw in the whois that consultant.com is some how related or owned by mail.com and they got back to me saying they took care of the matter and suspended the account but I am not sure if scammers are still using the consultant.com email address. I just received a craigslist scam from this [email protected] if you can kill that whole domain it would be nice. Anything that has consultant in the url is harmful to the public because it can easily fool people and make them think that a consultant has really contacted them when it's really a low life.

Hi there,

mail2consultant.com is a free webmail, not a vanity domain. So, there's nothing to kill there, but good job looking out! Very Happy

Edit: here's a link http://www.mail2world.com/s/m2wpublic/domains/domains_professions.asp

You are correct ...consultant.com belongs to mail.com

However mail2consultant.com belongs to mail2world.com

But why do you want to kill the address ?

People do use those domains for legitimate purposes, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the domains themselves.

Normally, we try to discourage people from killing email addresses for scammers because doing so can interfere with ongoing law enforcement investigations, destroy evidence, and make it more difficult for victims to research scammers if they become suspicious.
