    Hey i recieved an email from these dudes at "http://traderdomains.net" saying they managed to snatch up a .com of a website i might be interested in (i own the .net).

    They offered it for a very low price of 50 bucks. i said w/e and just bought it because i know i can flip it for 5x easily.

    That's till i realized maybe i should look more into this company before spending shit :rofl:. it was too late but whatever, it's 5am and im pretty messed up at the moment :sad2:

    Has anyone heard of this company or should i file a chargeback :o

    lol, I just got one of these a week ago, though not from "trader domains".

    Funny thing though is my .com WAS available so I registered it :rofl:




    my reply after I registered it:
    How about for $8?



    They didn't respond :wtc:

    i think they might be legit.

    the domain they are offering is surprisingly good, even for 50 bucks :o

    i did a whois and the domain was in possession of them (or atleast the contact info matched their domain)

    Go for it then. Not like losing out $50 would be that big of a deal even if they happened to scam you.

    I went on the .co.uk version of my domain yesterday and it is just a holding page with a link further down saying it might be for sale.

    I put in a very low bid and it came up with an error saying my bid must be >£1000 minimum :wtf:

    Even their own site statistics on the page shows the domain gets no traffic or anything :ugh:

    just for the record it looks like its a scam website.

    it's been over 48 hours since they said they would respond and they arent following up on any emails. oh well, only 40 bucks

    Just got an email from these same faggots.

    They offered me a .com for $49. I checked and it was available so I registered it. :rofl: Then I sent an email back thanking them for letting me know about the great domain. lulz.

    Similar type of company targetted my work recently.. we got a variety of letters from the same company to diff departments, seemed to be randomly targetted (eg HR got a letter, IT got a letter, Admin got a letter).. each was slightly diff..

    1. "xxxx.com is up for renewal, renew quickly or you may lose it, get a free ipod nano if you renew online via credit card now"... for a domain we didn't own and didn't want :p

    2. "xxxx.com is available! grab it now before someone else does! login and register via online instantly, don't hesitate!" ... for a domain we already own.

    I think they just target people who go "Shit, better act now!" and quickly throw credit card details into their site without thinking about it or checking up on it.
