I really thought this was done. I'm still getting spam from the domain purchase in April.
If you buy a domain, make sure you DO NOT use your primary email address in the information you offer.

You recently purchased I’m Doug with BlueTone Media, a web design and online marketing company and I was curious if you were looking to have a site built for the domain? I just wanted to let you know we help people who aren’t comfortable building sites themselves or want to take things to the next level. And after a site’s live, we can do things like SEO and AdWords campaigns, and also offer phenomenal support if you ever need a hand.

Please don’t hesitate to get back to me if you’re interested. You can also check out our portfolio to see what we’re capable of



Oh, and this is just a one time email, so don’t worry about me flooding your inbox - if you’re not interested or you’re good, I won’t bother you again!

When you sign up for a domain, don't use your primary email address.
You have to use a valid email, just don't use your favorite;
use some secondary address you don't care about.

Learned that lesson I did.
