Why would the seller go thru this identity crisis, if they were going to sell the domain for $19K, and go thru escrow, and verify the proper id's? They could have gotten about $50K for this domain 2 years back during the Chinese hype run, why take $19K today, then cry foul? The trend we have seen is to steal the domain, maybe photoshop the verification, and push, and run. Then you have the runner disappear, and the buyer, and the person who it was stolen from fight it out in he said/she said. Probably what has happend here, hot potato, given the value of the domain it is not simply a walk away situation.
