    Dear AzizGFX, It has come to our knowledge that you are the rightful owner of privategameservers.com

    On behalf of a large domain name investment company i would like to hear if you are interested in selling this domain name?

    We have more than 10 years experience in the domain brokering industry and see a potentiel value in your name. We value a fast and easy communication, if you are interested in selling privategameservers.com, please send an email to: incoming-domain@investet.com with subject line "Interested in selling privategameservers.com" including your asking price and prefered payment method for further considerations.

    Thank you in advance

    Sincerely
    Angeline

    please tell me if this is secure, legitimate and risk-free. I checked their domain and it seems empty. I would appreciate your suggestions. and if I do agree to sell it, how much should I charge? a friend stated not less than $5000 USD

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,
    Aziz

    Well Aziz, the first thing that caught my eye was that from: xxxxxx @ yahoo.com !

    Mmmmmmmm.......

    Answer in a polite way and offer the domain for $5000 (if that's your price) using Escrow or Sedo to complete the transfer.

    DON'T, under any circumstances accept paypal for this transaction, not even if they state it's a verified, bla bla account.

    Keep us updated.

    They should at least send their email from the investment company's domain. hotmail is a red flag for me.

    Hello Aziz,

    Thank you for contacting us regarding privategameservers.com, we see a great potential in your name and are happy you are open for selling.


    We find your asking price of $10,000 interesting, a bit high, but we are open for a negotiation. And just for your information, we can pay via sedo, as you requested.


    Before we can start a purchase process we need the following from you:


    An officially certified domain appraisal, not older than 3 months. The domain valuation determines a fair selling price based on accurate analysis and will help us settle on a price we are both happy with.


    If you already have an official appraisal for this domain, not older than 3 months, please forward the certificate to me. If not, you can get one from the leaders in the industry here : http://investet.com/domain-appraisal


    When you have the appraisal, please forward it to me and we can start the transition process.


    Looking forward hearing from you.


    Sincerely,

    Martin Reuter

    Senior domain manager

    That site is bullshxxt.

    Stay away from it.. The site Praisals.com is selling worthless crap..
    A fresh "company" that no-one wil own on the paper..

    Updated Date: 01-jun-2010
    Creation Date: 17-mar-2010
    Expiration Date: 17-mar-2011

    If an "respected" domaindealer want you to use this "company" to find the right price, they are scammers for sure..

    You will be sweet-talked until you pay the $29 -fee, and you will never hear from the "buyer" again..

    Use Paypal when you want to buy things, good tool for buyers, sellers can risk getting their account frozen if a buyer is dishonest..
