    I sold a site last week at sedo and after 4-5 days I've received email that buyer has made payment and I shoud push name. First thing that was suspicious is that in email wasn't my name, only " dear sedo member" and second that I should push domain. Sedo rules says if you sold site you should first send files of site and after buyer install it you pushing name. After that I was check my old emails from sedo and saw that godaddy account number is different. After that I log in to sedo account and check transaction history and saw it wasn't updated. I've contact sedo and they confirmed that buyer is involved in fraud.

    So first thing you should do is check you transaction history in sedo account before you transfer name you sold there.

    Sedo have for a while now been sending the following email for transactions:

    Please be aware that there is a secure transfer message waiting for you in your Sedo account. To read the message, please log into your Sedo account, select ‘View Transactions’ from the left margin and then follow the link to the particular transaction. Please follow the provided instructions in the message and send confirmation via a separate email using the information in the message. This is a notification email - for security, please do not reply to this communication.

    If you get any email other than this then it is probably a fake.

    Currently looks Sedo doesn't have a SOP on this. half time they send mail in this style to me, half time they send the old format mail to give me instruction directly in email.

    Even the same Sedo Rep useing 2 formats in different time

    So login your Sedo accout to check the history is still the best way to confirm what happended

    Thanks for the info. Normally I will only push my domain to the account which comes from sedo staff's email instruction.

    Thats really poor practice if its true. I havent sold a domain on Sedo for a while, but I do feel i can trust their service. I park most of my domains there.

    Thanks for the information on this, I will be extra vigilant in transactions using Sedo

    thanks for the headsup, and don't click on any links sent to you via email, it's better for you to access it via your bookmark, type it or put all frequented websites in an excel file and access from there.
