    I am watching Sedo auctions closely. When I saw this domain in the auction, the first what came on my mind was a "fake offer" being send to 7 days auction to pick up a dummy bidder (I believe this wouldn't be the first case @Sedo). Who wouldn't accept such a high offer instantly? On the other hand the "buyer" must be verified to offer so much money, so not sure if this kind of scam would be possible...

    High tickets sales (like this one) perhaps, however not all Sedo sales being listed @NameBio ever too place, it would be impossible to confirm every random sale IMHO. Many sold names never get paid for.

    I've done all of this and even made a video. Visit the domain to see.

    Hope everyone's week is already off to a great start. We just wanted to follow up on the thread here as promised regarding Test.Center.

    We have had to cancel the transfer of this to the buyer involved. No completed sale at this time but it's a domain with a lot of potential so it will interesting to see who ends up with it down the road.

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully cas?no.com (IDN) with current $100,000 offer won't be next.

    Exactly! This one is a strange one too.. Single bid of $100,000 for a no reserve auction.
    Ofcourse, this again could be a "Make offer" converted to auction.

    Afterwork is a noun and an adjective these days.

    Thanks for the update, but like all big headlines that get a reversal, Joe Q. Public will be referring to this "sale" for years to come.

    I guess SEDO should report "Auction Results" only AFTER receiving the money in their escrow-account.

    Thanks to @Bob Hawkes and @Michael for clearing this up. It does get me thinking.. how @Sedo would do with dot-com only i.e. become like brandbucket?

    Never work, as a lot of their biggest sales are ccTLD, especially their home .DE.

    I take your point, it does seem crazy. I wonder could they segregate the content based on geo location of the user.

    Again tough one, as it might be a big US IP firm searching for domains for European/Asian/African clients.

    What Sedo needs to do is improve their search capabilities so that end users have much more control over the results. I find it nearly impossible to fine-tune their system, as it seems designed to spew as much garbage out as possible.

    People take drugs all the time and buy names. After they get sober they decide it was a bad idea.
    Obviously this name test.center is kind of worthless, 195K is just insane.

    A good question that I could not determine an answer to. As article noted, the last (privacy hidden) ownership change was some months ago when the name switched from a for sale lander to that redirection. Unless it is they who are now trying to sell it again, i do not understand. I submitted a query to that company some days ago which was not yet answered. I am sorry but I have no good answer to your good question.

    When you get someone to offer 195k for your name, probably not a good idea to push to auction. That is probably what screwed the sale. Should have just accepted the deal and gotten it done. That is where the greed will get you.

    I stopped going to Interviews after BlueChip IT companies of India among 2 of them rejected me for Chat Support after having over 5 years of SEO experience on Resume...
    Only the Female HR and Women relatives of Bluechip IT Companies India could buy this kind of domain...
