    Well I am still reeling from it. I see some news and realise
    that I am due £50 and then I contact the company and
    they say there is no way they will pay. What do I do ?.
    I just think of all the domains I can buy,lol . Anyone know
    a good lawyer ?.

    If the debtor company has assets, and your case is strong or already won in court, then you should be able to find formidable lawyers to act for you on a percentage of the settlement they can extract.

    No doubt, a company with a multi million dollar debt will prefer to exhaust all other options before handing over the cash, and with such relatively high stakes I am sure they will be as slippery as a bucket full of eels.

    Perhaps you should supply a list of your domains for sales, with prices. I have been tempted by the odd few.

    Thanks mate, i suppose after a while unsold domains dont look so good!.

    Wish you luck with getting whats owed to you, surely with that type of money involved they must have to pay??? Its no joke!!!

    No problem. To be honest I have been buying and selling domains
    for around 6-7 years now and im kind of addicted. At the end of the
    day youve got to think "what am I buying this domain for" and that
    will hopefully concentrate your mind on whether the name you are
    about to register is worthwhile. i.e. if you register "discount-hotel-rates"
    you really are registering a domain that will be good for getting
    hits from search engines, but i dont think will be as easy to sell
    to someone else as you couldnt brand it. If on other hand you register "easyhotelreservations " you will have a name that will be both of interest
    to hotel owners and get hits from search engines and is brandable
    (or so Easy Group would claim).
    Thanks and I will collect in due course im sure. If I do I wil treat
    the whole forum to a slap up meal.

    Good advise mate, it gives me a new perspective on how to choose which domain names are worth registering.

    Im an absolute beginner at this so i guess i can only get better at it with experiance.

    ..... Looking forward to the slap up meal, ill keep my eyes open for the limo pulling up!!! :D

    Ive been working on some business project for about 3 years
    with no pay only commission. The deal came off for them through
    my work and they said there was no agreement.

    No too shy to post about $17,000,000 owed to you ... oh, thats edited to £50 now ;)

    You dont happen to own a fair number of domains relating to legal instituions do you?!

    I feel I ought to do the 'You are Kolly Kibber I claim my five pounds....' ;)

    Seriously though, lots of people around here are more than happy to help but timewasters are just that.

    Cheers,
    Rob.

    I am not the one who posted asking for help trying to reclaim $17,000,000 :p

    To be honest a UK specific domain forum is not really somewhere I would consider asking either :)

    I think you might have taken my comments the wrong way, the only frustrations are when advice is offered but ignored or people post with no intention of listening to suggestions.

    This thread however is just providing some light amusement on a sunday evening... :wink:

    Cheers,
    Rob.
