I recently paid £600 for a domain (.co.uk) plus £10 registration fee. Before handing payment I checked the whois records to make sure the domain had been renewed because I knew it was nearing deletion. To my utter dismay I found out that the unscrupulous seller had reversed the domain renewal payment. As such, the domains was days away from deletion. Fortunately, for me I caught it in time. I will posting full details of the TAG holder here unless I get a reasonable explanation from him.
