    Colleague of mine accepted a offer on a 3L.com from [email protected] - from my perspective the email alone looks totally shady, i personally would of never accepted a email like that personally, as the red flags are present on the email alone.

    Has anybody here had any dealing with this buyer, numerous alarm bells once the deal was in escrow.com. At this point, would like to close things off - wondering if this is some known trickster and other things are at play. i.e. front-running - offering swaps on stolen names

    I do have a ymail ID and I am not a spammer. :xf.smile:

    The contents should trigger skepticism, not mail ID alone.

    Free emails are a no-no for doing business imo.. so, yes, email alone is a cause for 'scepticism'

    Do you think free Gmail is considered as spam?

    Also, what mail service do you use for communication with potential clients?

    ending in @gmail.com? yes, definitely. I frown every time I receive a gmail email as I consider it a lazy approach to business.

    I use my own email from my hosting provider and, everyone I do business with, they also use their own emails.
    It shows professionalism doing so or, at least, it shows that you care.

    I have to agree, especially if you are dealing with clients working in the 4 figures and up area. On here i provide my Gmail email for paypal, But outside of small business transactions with major clients i use my business email provided with my .world domain.

    The topic is taking a different turn from the actual concern of the OP @MSN-Domains
    Emails are certainly not a criteria to judge one's trustworthiness.

    i wouldn't go based off trustworthiness - but if i was selling a domain for more than a few thousand, and someone with a Gmail or Yahoo email sent me a message - I think it does raise a few red flags. Like first of all - how can you afford a domain that cost 4+ digits but you can't afford or have the business sense to get a professional email address.

    I wouldn't place too much concern on the use of a personal email address. It maybe a deliberate tactic - the buyer may not want the seller to know they are from a major company.

    Yea it's look a random email ID but a quick search show this person had some names or owned names in the past.

    Tell your friend to use Escrow's concierge service for the transfer. It's much safer.

    Be carefull is one of great key in order to prevent in harmful transaction. For little transaction, especially via paypal , using gmail , yahoo , and another free email still okey . May be you could ask another email or him / her company email. Escrow service would be better option to manage deal transaction.
