By: Aigars Thu, 25 Jul 2013 09:30:54 +0000 One more scam, I think from the same person. I have list my domains on SEDO.

From email:


I’m interested in buying

I’ve found it through Sedo.

Please respond with how much you are looking for it. Just specify this price in the subject line.

If you have other names for sale please email me your list with prices.

I offer 7,000 usd. I have 42,000 usd budget for 12-15 domain names.

How can I pay you (PayPal, Western Union, etc.)? If this is your first time domain sale I may help you with the sale/transfer process.

Are you a member of domain seller communities/forums? Probably, we know each other under some nicknames?

I’m going to invest in hosting, adult and online shopping related names.

Best regards,

Abram Bernstein



Ok. Since you are a novice in domain selling I can help you with the transfer process. Before we go further we need the following:

Please send me an official appraisal (certificate of price).

Please don’t worry, it will take only 2 minutes to order it. I prefer appraisal service that also verifies possible trademark infringements. It’s important for me to know that your domain has no problems with trademarks. It won’t be a problem for you since some good appraisers offer this option (trademark infringement verification) as a free bonus to the appraisal service.
Without it we cannot be 100% sure in the final sale price. The appraisal will help determine the true value of your domain’s worth so you can maximize profits during the sale. On the other hand, it will minimize my risks too.

To avoid mistakes and wasting money on useless automated services I asked in the forum about reliable manual valuation/TM verification services. Please read this:

The process is very easy:
1. Go to the appraisal site and order the valuation with the TM verification. After several hours you will get the results.
2. Please resend these results via email and we’ll proceed with the deal.
Hi There,

Sounds great, we can process via escrow this domain name for $7000.00
