    Hey guys.
    costing13 created originally a thread for selling two of his domains: Cryptoshop.com and Cryptoflog.com.

    After a while that thread was closed while in between me and one more NP member asked more details about Cryptoshop.com which seemed to be a live site. I also sent him a pm asking him BIN price, when he replied I asked him to email me back from this domain admin whois email so I can verify hew really owns the domain.
    That's when he replied:
    by the way its cryptoshopi

    Obviously this guy was trying to scam NP users since he had the chance to correct the domain name many times but he only did this when I asked him to verify his whois detals, through a pm.

    Attached is a screenshot of our pm exchange.

    ps: same user created a new thread selling his other domains so be very cautious when dealing with him.

    I have dealt with this guy on Flippa. I have been talking to him for a few days trying to fill him out. He definitely has some elements to him that are questionable to say the least. Be careful.

    Funny because every single day we have been talking on skype, morning, noon, night. It is like he does not sleep. He claims to be based in the UK, at least that is where all his "whois" info leads to however, I can't be sure. He has many different first and last names. I asked him about this whole cryptoshop transaction and though he was last seen on skype 49 minutes ago, he has not replied to my message........though he was very responsive when he thought I was going to send him money to list domains that we can 'invest in together'. Haha......along with the beachfront property in Iowa I just bought.

    Hard to believe for me, even in the Domain industry, we also have that Cockroaches.
    You know, it is supposed to know languages, a more than basic studies, some ID card registers on internet and so on. Incredible passing all filters and still have thoose who trying to scam, lie, and hurt this industry...
