$20,000.00 in USDC was sent to someone presenting themselves as George Dikian, [email protected].​

The seller agreed to sell gato.com for $50,000.00. The seller agreed to transfer the domain after $20,000.00 USDC in cryptocurrency was sent, and then the remainder of the funds would be sent after the name was transferred.​

The seller then quit responding to emails and did not send the domain name or a refund.​

Has anyone else had experience with this seller? If so, please share your experiences.​

"The Defendants used, inter alia, the reputation of Dikian, a wellknown domain name investor and reseller, as well as a sophisticated, fraudulent online website that posed as an escrow service, Intermediar.com (“Intermediar”), as the linchpins in their scheme to convince VPN that VPN was brokering legitimate transactions between Dikian and Du."

I warned about that escrow company here and some people took their side

Wow, what a case. Some interesting comments by John Berryhill over at OnlineDomain.

Talk about a solid commission VPN was seeking. Too good to be true?:

"After several rounds of negotiation with Dikian, Dikian agreed on an acquisition price of $2,250,000 net to Dikian. After several rounds of negotiation with Du, Du agreed on an acquisition price of $4,400,000 to be paid by Du. VPN’s net proceeds for brokering the deal would be $2,150,000."

"After negotiations on both sides, VPN, Dikian and Du came to terms on the Escrow.com Transaction, with Du paying $12,530,000, Dikian receiving $8,025,000, and VPN receiving $4,475,000."

Clearly the person claiming to be the domain owner is not the real person.

The scammer probably phished the email login information from the real G Dikian. Oldest trick in the book. And the scammer probably has access to their portfolio as well. They would have sent gato.com if it came down to it, but they rather get the money and run.

These was some names I was trying to buy for a byuyer from him.

He did not seem to scam me at all.

deall was not done

@Ariff BD -- Curious if you could explain more. Did a buyer contact hoping you could broker the buy side of these domains which lead you to contacting Dikian?

It seems VPN.com was approached by somebody claiming to be Qiang Due looking for VPN to broker the purchase of domains owned by Dikian. Curious if you experienced something similar?
