Don’t Miss A Sale!

Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home1/theman37/public_html/ on line 103

I've been reading around the forums alot recently, and what I have noticed, is that many people are so scared of being scammed, they are passing up potentially huge sales.

Whenever someone makes a post on NamePros, for example, that says something along the lines of:
"Someone sent me an email, and asked me if my domain name was for sale", the thread gets about 5-6 posts that say its a scam. 99% of the time, this is without any knowledge about the email that was received. I'll admit, there are many times when scammers send out fake emails, to get you to fall for an appraisal scam, or to try to steal your domain name. You need to be aware of those scams, so that you don't fall victim to one of them. But at the same time, don't assume that every email you receive inquiring about a domain name is a scam. Be aware of what is going on, though. I would suggest keeping an eye on DomainNameScams. This blog is run by Reece Burg, and he writes posts that will keep you informed about the latest (you guessed it) domain name scams.

Here are the most important tips I can give you:

  • Never pay for an appraisal, especially if an end-user asks you to purchase one.
  • Always use a trusted escrow service. I suggest:
    -Moniker Escrow
    -Sedo Escrow
  • When an end-user contacts you, don't be afraid to pick up the phone! It is much easier to sniff out a scam (and negotiate!) over the phone.

I'm sure some of my readers might have something to add to this, so if you do, don't hesitate to leave a comment, and Ill consider adding it to the post! :)
