I purchased a domain on Sedo from a member of this forum. We agreed the price and both parties entered into the usual electronic contract one does when buying/selling a domain on Sedo. I then paid for the domain in full through Sedo. The seller has since then defaulted on our agreement by not responding to Sedo or our numerous attempts to contact him. It also appears that he might have sold the domain to a third party as the Whois info has since changed. My questions are: 1. This would be a very valuable domain for us, (the agreed sale price, which is still held in escrow by Sedo, was around £1000), and we have already spent considerable amounts of time developing a website around the domain name, creating logos etc. whilst waiting for the paperwork to come through. We would be willing to fight to get our hands on the domain if this is possible, but we have yet to take legal advice. What are your opinions, do we have any chance of getting the domain through legal action if he has indeed already sold it to a third party? 2. Sedo has said that they would suspend the seller's account for defaulting on the deal, but from reading other posts about experiences with Sedo it seems they might just not care... Does anyone think Sedo will take any action against the seller? 3. Is there some sort of warning system here on the forum to let others know of "rouge" sellers/buyers that enter into agreements and then default on them? I don't want to just throw out the name here without knowing what the usual practice is. But I would hate for other members to have to waste the time we have been doing over the last few weeks to developing something they thought that they had bought, only to find that the seller defaults on the deal in the end... Any advice or thoughts on how to proceed with this would be much appreciated.
