    Afternic - Official Thread

    Wow! You apparently have proven a very important point here. Even unintentionally, domain front running is being not only condoned but also even promoted by GoDaddy. Since you prior post, I did some more searches on the internet about this issue. Afternic and Dan have apparently both...

    information [DAN] New Features: Import LTO Transactions and Auto-Opt-In Distribution

    Dan is likely at a critical juncture right now for credibility. When I did a check of various keywords, and found about 60% of the listings on this spot check weren't even registered domains! Doesn't having any unregistered domain listings from renegade sellers a serious blow to their...

    discuss One of my domain that list by other people was sold on Afternic today

    Almost a month ago, didn't you request that they remove a large number of the fake listings that you found? So, after a month, only one of those listings no longer appears? That is really sad, if that is the case. And, by the way, thank you so much for having had the courage to speak up about...

    DAN.COM Domain Marketplace (Official Thread)

    I found multiple listings on Afternic that were unregistered domains, being offered for $1000s of dollars. My hope was that Dan was doing better at this point. On a spot check of one keyword search 60% of the domains were unregistered, and some were up for sale for thousands of dollars...

    discuss There are some people list millions of other people's domain on Afternic

    Oh brother, so we now have a "rinse and repeat" domain relisting issue. THANK YOU, SO MUCH, for taking the extra time to recheck this. So really, it is futile trying to remove the listings, because they show up again anyhow?! Yes, I did check much of my portfolio, and now three additional...

    discuss There are some people list millions of other people's domain on Afternic

    Afternic, by its lack of response to these issues, is indicating that the company itself appears to condone these actions. Are they promoting Domain Frontrunning?! Is this part of their affiliate marketing business plan? Perhaps these are not rogue sellers, but actual dedicated business...

    discuss There are some people list millions of other people's domain on Afternic

    Sure, it's easy to confuse the two. There apparently is supposed to be a simple solution with Namecheap. They suggested delisting the domain from Afternic, and then resubmitting it. That is supposed to then trigger a second approval for Fast Transfer. Then, siimply don't approve the second...

    Oh, boy! And the floor price can be the minimum price. Did you contact AN support. It looks like your listing at least your fraudster's listing was taken down. Still no word from two supports ticket with AN. The fraudulent listing are still there in my case. al At a minimum, they could...

    discuss There are some people list millions of other people's domain on Afternic

    This is a tricky technical point. If someone agreed in the past to have the Fast Transfer, one would think that after being removed and relisted, that the approval should be required again. After all, this thread is about sellers with fraudulent listings. Let's say the ownership had...

    discuss There are some people list millions of other people's domain on Afternic

    This is perhaps a new twist to the domain front running scheme. The creative individuals involved might be monitoring auctions for a quick turn around profit with $0 invested up front. If someone makes an offer on the fraudulent listing at Afternic, the spurious buyer could try to then...

    discuss There are some people list millions of other people's domain on Afternic

    My question has continued to be: is there potentially an issue with security breaches along with these domain front running activities? That is really not cool. The domain name is, mind you, but not what the spurious seller is doing. Shameful, isn't it!

    warning Someone attempting to sell my domain on Dan without consent

    Yes. Sedo had some very negative Trust Pilot reviews related to the problem in the past. They responded to the issue. Verification is now strict, and I see that their ratings overall have improved.

    warning Someone attempting to sell my domain on Dan without consent

    Yes, one wonders how many actual seller domains would have already sold if domain frontrunning wasn't happening? Some folks here have very large portfolios, which may make it all the more difficult to them to monitor for domain frontrunning. The marketplaces need to step up to the plate...

    warning Someone attempting to sell my domain on Dan without consent

    So, basically what we are continuing to see is a domain front-running schemes on these marketplaces. Let me highlight one of your key questions: So, if someone thinks your domain is a good buy at that price, and could possibly sell for twice the amount, wouldn't you prefer that they pay you...

    warning Someone attempting to sell my domain on Dan without consent

    If you have a portfolio and had been on Dan previously, it may be worth rechecking to see if these sellers are also trying to sell your names. What appears bolder now is that there are a diversity of seller listings involved. Before, most of the fraudulent listings were under one large...

    DAN.COM Domain Marketplace (Official Thread)

    On Dan, it is clear that there is still a problem with domains not owned by sellers still attempting to be sold by them. After reading your post, I found 13 instances of my domains not owned by others, still being put up for sale. Sadly, one of them was StopAnnoyingMe.com! In...
