WARNING: An old appraisal scam seems to have been resurrected that everyone should be aware of. Yesterday, I got an offer on a domain. On reply, the potential buyer says he may be interested, but wants to verify what the domain is worth, and will only buy if an appraisal is provided from one of the appraisers he "trusts". He then goes on to list greatdomains.com, domainsultan.com, and hollywooddomains.com. I would always advise someone to avoid "appraisals" and if they want one, to waste their own money. In checking further, I noticed that domainsultan was only registered 12 days earlier and lists lower prices than the other two. There is the scam, in that he likely owns the appraiser site and is trying to drum up business for himself. I replied back with my standard wording in case it was legit, but on further checking found he has tried this on others in the last few days. The site is registered to a UK address, and the offer comes from a free domain offered at rock.com, also using a UK based IP address. You will never get taken on this scam if you are not tempted to buy into providing an appraisal in any circumstance.
