I have added moderator on our conversation.
Could almost be spoken as "socks" even though it's soks. It is nice domain and two hundred is a bargain, I see someone tried to snap it up. I suggest new seller push before payment or maybe take $100 first (half) then expect $100 after push. I mean something needs to be done to assure people they'll get domain.
noticed Dw much appreciate
What he should have done is list it for $207 (to cover fees which is allowed I think as long as you aren't quote stating + fees) then him take regular paypal.
Exactly. it’s a compromise.
Pay lil extra for fees; PayPal Seller Protection;
Which we sorely need. Be careful;
When filing a chargeback; it may not matter if he transfers the money to another Paypal acc; Now anything outside of big PR campaign PP; (thread to shame them) wont get $200 back. not foolproof; but not pay FF aimless; helps
Agree on the good name part...however, I would not recommend sending any money first even for $100....it seems fishy no feedback and recent member and not accepting any dan, escrow or even normal PayPal
Guys it's late here. See you on morning!
If the thread’s not deleted! (Outside OP&mod)
hey @Alfa Mod Team @Bravo Mod Team @Echo Mod Team
Try not to delete this entire thread!
(after due diligence, proves not own it;
I wrote nice info to prevent future scam attempt
Author easily prevent this by prove ownership
I would suggest change the title to member's name in question instead of the domain name tho because if he doesn't own the name. We might permanently damage another person's domain.
I also asked them about it too;
Me: "Why don't you accept normal PayPal payment rather than friends and family option?"
They: "because I cannot use the payment for 21 days. How do you not know that?"
He seems like a professional scammer..
I was the first to reach out to him about this fake bargain.
After he asked multiple times to get paid first, I tested him by offering $400 (x2 his asking price) if he provides a valid Auth Code before I send payment... and he declined. During the same conversation, he even provided 2 different PayPal email addresses.
He kept saying that it's urgent... If you're a trustable person and you need money that much, you're supposed to accept this deal without hesitation... Right?
@Alfa Mod Team has been added to the conversation since the beginning, so there's no need to provide screenshots here.
With all these desperate and brainless domain scammers, I'm slowly but surely thinking about starting a YouTube channel. Pranking and wasting their precious time would be so satisfying.
End of the story then : )
Please add @Echo Mod Team to the direct message you have with that member so we can investigate and get more involved.
We just finished reviewing the negotiation and found the following:
The buyer contacted the seller requesting that the domain be transfer prior to payment confirmation.
The seller Did not agree and reminded the buyer that payment is traditionally made first.
The buyer then offered to pay via Paypal if the seller could accept payment that way.
The seller negotiated the payment terms requesting friends and family.
The buyer did not agree to pay via friends and family.
The buyer requested proof of ownership sent to their email and was never able to confirm the receipt of that proof.
The seller renegotiated Paypal, provided a different paypal email than the first negotiation, requesting friends and family again.
The buyer did not agree to friends and family, once again and requested that the domain be transfered first.
It is in this moderator teams opinion that the above negotiation was never fortified into an agreement since neither party were able to agree on the exact payment method or whether to send the domain or to pay first.
There needs to be an iron clad agreement made during the negotiation process. Otherwise the deal can be voided, since neither party were able to agree on the terms of the sale.
Note: If both, the buyer and seller had agreed to some specific terms, it would have been binding and neither party would be able to back out of it.
In this case, negotiations never completed and the deal is now void.
Sorry it didn't work out.
