    I registered on SEDO for the first time yesterday, and listed one domain on there.

    Lo and behold, I suddenly got the following email today...

    I guess the distribution of the email is "strictly prohibited" because the emailer wants to keep his scam hush-hush... *sigh*

    I replied saying "make me an offer" and then got the following response:

    There's no way the domain in question would be worth anything like that amount.

    It would appear this is an old scam and I'm not sure many of you have seen it before. However, the name being used appears to be different to the other examples around the Web so hopefully me posting this will help anyone else searching for 'David Grantz' or 'Web Domains & Hosting LLC'.

    This is one of hundreds of 'appraisal' scams. There are many posts about this nonsense on Acorn.

    Happened to us as well.

    My hubby got offered £15,000 for Lenses.TV funny thing is he replied with an absolutely ridiculous counter to put them off something like £70,000 and they still wanted to go ahead.lol The domain is newly reg as well. It just puts domainers off selling privately which might lead to missed opportunities because I have sold a few domains to Legit companies who have emailed me but I guess "caution" can be defined as using Listing service, Escrow and never pay for appraisals even sedo appraisals pisses me off. You can check backlinks domain history bla bla yourself why pay. The appraisal algorithm is all over the Net and the seller should always have an Idea anyway. Should be worth your bottom price period.

    Anyway be cautious. :)
