    offer via EFTY lander
    domain is two-word .COM
    buyer is outside the US

    While it is possible the buyer is making an offer in a foreign currency which translated into USD is $XXX, I seriously doubt this offer is legit.

    Regardless, we will play along and see how serious they are. I did respond to the buyer indicating offers must be in USD.

    I would maybe get the people running Efty involved. They can probably help you figure out the whole thing with currency (what it looks like on the potential buyer's end).

    I haven't ever received an offer in foreign currency. I would assume they mean USD. :)

    You can check their IP if it's from efty, and find their country.

    1000000 Iranian Rial equals 30.87 US Dollar - I cheated and looked this is weakest currency.

    Some I deal in for ccTLDs
    1000000 Macedonian Denar equals 17,201.97 US Dollar
    1000000 Polish Zloty equals 244,914.96 US Dollar
    1000000 Swedish Krona equals 112,214.50 US Dollar

    PS Good luck and keep us updated! : smile :

    lol I remember meeting an Iraqi once years ago. Said he needed cash and would sell me millions of dinars after the war. supposedly because once they were back up the currency will rise in value greatly.

    until of course they scrapped the entire currency and rolled out with new currency rendering the old currency worthless. lol

    toilet paper.

    lucky I didn't buy any.

    But seriously please do keep us updated. would be nice to hear someone on NP made a million bucks.

    From OP doesn't sound like an $x,xxx,xxx name, so fat chance of that, IMO :xf.wink:

    I believe the domain is a legit $XXXX name (Whois history back to 2005). But given I have never made a five-figure sale, I realize this is probably a prankster or someone who cannot read English and is making an offer in their local currency. Within the last few weeks I received a solid five-figure offer from someone in Colombia where the exchange rate is ~3000 pesos to the dollar. But their likely intent was an equivalent USD $xx offer.

    Be positive - it could be a million Bitcoin. :)

    on the negative side, I can't see anyone starting a negotiation with a $1million offer. Has he asked you to have it appraised? :)

    btw - what is your counter offer?

    Maybe it's a drug cartel that wants to launder some money so they will splash out on a nice fat price on this domain and then "buy" it back from themselves under a different company name located in a different country for 10 times the price ... lol..

    I am Zimbabwean. I am 99.9% positive that serious offers from Zimbabwe would be in USD.

    I am 100% sure that a Zimbabwean who wants to buy a domain name can read & write English.

    Hopefully the potential buyer is serious, good luck!!

    Is the offer from India ?

    I received an offer recently for 500k in USD on a one word .energy
    My minimum bid is 300k+
    I don't think it's legit. sent for confirmation a few days ago... still waiting.
    you never know ! the person bidding is in the energy field

    Another request was for a 5N.com from a legit company in China
    sent 3600+ didn't hear back for 3 months
    They replied recently to confirm price/ready to buy
    Still waiting.....
    HA HA HA, I considered buying the dinar at that time too.
    Didn't buy either. Two luckies in one day
    Cheers

    If you reveal the name I'm sure we could put the speculation to rest fairly quickly....

    Not sure if it is the same case with Efty, normally it happens that sometimes you may have a minimum, unless they meet the minimum, they cannot send out the inquiry. So they get frustrated and put lot of 0's to get through the 'submit' button.

    Nobody really offers a million to start with, no matter what currency.

    Best.

    1 million Colombian pesos isn't that much money. My wife and I in recent months have sent in total more than 1.5 million pesos (~$500) to her family.
