Thread: Offered to sell a domain, please help me decide.

  1. #11
    thank you all. yes this does look like a scam aimed for affiliation earning. I have received 5+ e-mails from different people reporting that they received similar messages.

    If you received a message and still don't know what to do . simply ignore it, if you have paid for "certified domain appraisal" then issue a payment dispute as soon as possible.

    On side note: do you think I should still put my domain for auction? is it worth it? what do you think..

    Regards,
    Aziz

    It depends if you want to develop the site. If not, then I would try and judge when the market demand for this domain name is at it's peak and then list it on domain auction sites.

    As I thought, this is the typical "Appraisal Scam".

    Tell them to F*ck off.

    OKay, as you found out...just a freaking appraisal scam!
    Leave them alone and forget everything below.



    Well, a lot of buyers use a free email account to cut down on spam coming back at them.
    So that is not really a red flag.

    Now in the body, did ask for reply back to their company email.

    I would reply to that email with the price I would want and state that it is a firm price and non-negotiable (that separates the serious domain buyers from the just interested but only at a low price buyers).
    Via escrow only, and the buyer pays all escrow fees.
    And ask for a contact name and phone number so that you can follow up to make sure your email has been received and to answer any questions they may have.

    Not all people have time to have fun with scammers.
