    Received a message today through FB regarding a UK domain I have for sale - see attached. He seems pleasant enough but I guess you can never be too careful!

    Assume this is a scam and I should ignore?

    Bitcoin is fine if thats what you are worried about, just watch out when these buyers start saying something like you need to use this site xxxxxxxx.com in order to receive it. They will make it look like an actual transaction, but you'll never be able to cash out the Bitcoin because it's fake.

    Give them more options than Escrow.com;

    Unfortunately, it likely a common crypto scam

    Escrow.com does not currently support any cryptocurrency or bitcoin whether as the merchandise being transacted or as payment method.

    you’ll never see your bitcoin back;
