When I visit a domain I want for a side business I *may* start soon, it goes to a landing page with sponsored links and a link to contact the domain owner through mydomaincontact (strange that domain doesn't resolve to anything). I filled out the form and asked if it was for sale. someone wrote me pretty quickly and said they would consider a sale and asked for an offer. I offered $450. Not knowing what the best approach would be. They quickly wrote back and asked for $2,200. Here is where they look desperate. I did not respond and they followed up 3 times. I finally responded and said the price was too high, but thank you and good luck. Their response to that was that it was just an asking price and what was my best offer. I did not respond. They followed up again offering to deal a deal to give me credits for some website and include the domain for free. I again did not respond. Two more times they followed up. I finally responded that my offer I thought for $500 was fair. They responded, some "other guy" is not available to pay and if I complete deal now they will accept $450. Pay by PayPal. $50 now and $400 after transfer is complete. But must be done now. Saying they need USD in their PayPal. So my thoughts are this is a scam to get my $50. But it was me who reached out first. If this is legit, is PayPal a secure way to transfer domains? Or should some other escrow type service be used. And doesn't it take a little while for the domain to transfer over? They said it can be done quickly, in about 10 minutes. Whole process just seemed weird and desperate. This was over about a week. Any advice is much appreciated.
