You can even make a mail domain. Here's one:

When I click on your domain it comes up as a virus scam?

I did a search on Google and there seems to be a lot of DOT.TK scams out there.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

     I'm not sure, exactly what you mean. Because .tk is available to anyone, free of charge, many phishing (website fraud) criminals may use it. For instance, registering   "" and collecting credit card information. If you go to, it is an official website, and will not scam you - and it doesn't collect information anyways, you don't even need an account. It is a website created by the government of Tokelau, a small south pacific island territory of New Zealand. They created it, and give away domains for free, to try to raise awareness of the problems they face with rising sea levels. I've been using their service for over a year now, and have never encountered any problems, but I agree, it is always important to make sure that any website you visit is official, and not a phishing scam.

Thanks for your concern,
