    Hello,

    I'm interested in your domain name listed for sale.
    Can you drop me your desired price?
    If I can afford it I'll reply.
    By the way, did you receive offers from other buyers?
    I run a software development company. Selling & buying names is not my main business. Just another way to invest money and make additional income.
    Please keep our correspondence confidential.

    ===================================================================Scam Alert: allfordomains.com appraisal scam

    Here is a heads up for an appraisal scam. Somebody e-mailed me that they were interested in one of my domains. I replied with a price, and here was his reply.

    Thank you for the response!
    Do you sell a developed site or just domain name? If you have a
    developed site please send us traffic statistics. If you don't have a site it's not a problem. We are mostly interested in domain names without content. We need an appraisal for domain priced in your range. In other words we need some kind of proof that your price is reasonable.Our partners (webmasters and domain owners) always recommend us to verify an independent appraisal first. It would be fair for both of us.Please note that we don't trust free or cheap appraisals. We were burned after accepting such appraisals in the past. So we cannot accept appraisal from each and every site.
    Appraisal from www.Sedo.com is not acceptable because your name is isted with them and they are not independent in our case.
    I asked about reputable appraisal companies in a well-known webmaster forum
    http://www.webmasterforum.com/showthread.php?t=53837
    My nickname there is JMARTIN. Hope webmasters will recommend us
    appraisal companies with good reputation.
    After we verify an appraisal from you we'll continue our negotiations.How do you prefer to get paid: www.PayPal.com, www.escrow.com,check or wire? Looking forward to your reply.
