Some of you may know that some months back, I was ripped off by a seller here on NP. I had bought a 4L .com domain and shortly after receiving the domain, GoDaddy repossessed it. My loss was very small thank goodness. Of course, the seller disappeared. Anyway, after that happened, I decided that I would only purchase names registered at GoDaddy if I called them directly, and they told me the name was clear. Well, I had to do just that today. I won an auction for a domain here on NP (it was for several hundred dollars), so right before I sent payment, I decided to call GoDaddy. The seller only had a couple of trade reviews and is new to the forum. I called and it was great. The rep did pretty extensive checking and assured me the domain I was buying was clear of any problems at GoDaddy. He made notes of the call. I then completed the purchase. It probably would have been fine, but I had to do it. For anyone else that might find this useful, with a simple call to GoDaddy, they can let you know if a domain is connected to any issues.
