    Hey guys and gals,

    Be forewarned about this account. He tried to hussle 50$ from my broke ass by implying he had found me an 8k deal on one of my domains.

    He insisted on receiving 50$ before making the deal. After I suggested on giving him 2k as a finders fee once the deal closed considering I've never had a deal that big he insisted I give him 30$ beforehand.

    I reported him and proceeded to tell him good luck succeeding with your reported account and he did not answer back.

    Be weary fellow domainers. If it seems too good to be true it probably is.

    Jeepers, thanks for sharing. Surprised how blatant his con was. Did he really think someone is stupid enough to just handover money that easily? :banghead:

    Haven't gotten back to me quite yet. This just happened and I felt it urgent to warn anyone else.

    He's got quite a bunch of legit threads going on. You're a 10 day old namepros member with a website and domains for sale.

    He hasn't done anything that proves he's a scammer. He could've contacted you on your website through an anonymous email.

    That
    Those were my thoughts exactly! He's an established member with some time and effort on this site behind him. But I assure you his "deal" was fishing. I doubt I would have ever seen a sale and would have been out 50$. I have screenshots of the entire conversation but can't figure out how to add them.

    Isn't @ImperiousDon the guy always asking for "emergency" appraisals because he doesnt want to do any research on his own ? He seems to be "throwing darts" trying to find a domain to sell.
    Let's see what the mods find.

    I'll let you know once I know. I can't upload files on this thread category but I can on the sell domains category so I'm going to do it there. You will have some proof for the 24-48 hours before mods take it down for being in the wrong category

    Judging from his previous posts I doubt he found anything for you as he claims. If you can prove he said he found a $8k offer and it was a lie, the guy is gone....

    Hell, if I found you a solid $8k offer, I would want at least 5%, not $50. :-P

    Jeez I swear this site is trying to make me look dumb :P

    I tried to post the images to a selling thread but it said the moderators had to view it before it posted.

    So I went through the trouble of posting all the pictures to pasteboard and copying in all the links of the pictures and it tells me I can't include links cause I'm not upgraded member -_-

    ImperiousDon is also a new user. Only been here since August 28th. Sure the mods will sort it out.

    If you continue a conversation with him make sure you add a mod who witnesses everything that was said once added.

    Calm down, ask the mods for help. Don't ruin your message by getting too excited.

      I have connection with some brokers who are really good at providing buyers for several domains...

      If your domain is valuable , let me know

      Hey,

      Thanks for reaching out! The domain in question is increaseyouraudience.com

      It's already been shot down quite a few times for being long tail and recently hand regged but I still see value in it just for the fact it could work for such a vast amount of end users in the marketing/advertising community, especially online for social media marketing on YouTube and Instagram, etc.

    • Established Member
      Well I also see value in it
      I would say 10K-15K to the right buyer and I have the right person to ask for this domain.
      If he agrees our fee is 50$ before and 15% of the amount after the domain switchs user.
      If you agree , let me know

    • Established Member
      8K leave it or take it

      Being completely honest with you I'm a bit strapped for cash at this moment. I've poured a lot into developing a portfolio and just paid out a decent amount to develop a website to try and directly sell my domains from.

      This would be my first sale to date as I've only been in the business for about 3 weeks now. If you'd still be willing to consider I am willing to give you 25% for waiving the initial 50$?

    • New Member
      Holy sh*t! How did you find that so fast?! If you can make that offer work I'll give you 2k to seal the deal!

    • Established Member
      We dont work that way , The buyer just sent a 8K offer and you want to retreat now?
      30$ before and 20% after its my last deal , we respect clients but you should respect us ;)you have a gold mine

    • Established Member
      Well Bill , its my childhood friend , and a youtuber too ... Increaseyouraudience.com , well that makes money to him , and to me too for brokering it ;)


    • New Member
      Have you heard the saying "If it feels too good to be true then it must be?" I just get the feeling if this deal was legit you'd take the 2k off the top and not be worried about 30-50$. Sorry but I'm going to have to pass.

    • Established Member
      Its all about the trust my friend.
      I have the buyer you have the domain ;)
      You decide , I know you’ll be back ;) just kicked a deal that many dont even get it :)
      Good luck

    • New Member
      Sorry but no one in their right mind would turn down 2k to make 50$ unless they're fishing a scam.

      How about this. You deal successfully with the report I just put on your account and maybe we'll talk.

    My thought, He is clearly don't have any buyer. He only wants that $50 (how cheap guy he is).

    "I have connection with some brokers who are really good at providing buyers for several domains..."

    Just checked out some of his other posts.

    Said he never sold a domain. It's like 2 different people.

    Lmao it got confusing! This entire conversation was within 5 minutes. I got excited, told him if he waived the 30-50$ upfront I'd just give him 2k from the 8k sale but he insisted on getting just the 30-50 upfront and trying to rope me in telling me I was missing out. Pretty sure he was the one missing out wanting 30-50$ more than 2k :S

    I wonder if maybe his account got hacked or something. Could have been someone else acting on his behalf.

    ImperiousDon is his username. I had to delete both our names and times of message exchange cause they included links. I'm a new user so I can't include links in my posts

    You know if his friend bill is actually a successful youtuber that explains how to increase your audience then perhaps hes just be a farfetched broker lol.
