I have been scammed by Sedo. Around 2 months ago I paid $795 for a domain and the seller eventually started the transfer and everything seemed to be going as normal (I've spent $$$$$ by domains via Sedo over the years). Then the seller just wouldn't complete the deal and it fell through. This was around a month ago and Sedo STILL haven't given me a refund. I have been pestering them and they keep saying they will sort it soon but they're obviously trying to keep hold of money. What's worse is that when the deal eventually fell through, Sedo flat out lied to me and said, "We have processed a refund to the payment details in your Sedo account. The payment has left our account." BS, no money ever arrived in my PayPal account. This is a lesson learned, I will be contacting the owners of domains directly from now on where possible and cutting out the unreliable middle man because I've found out the hard way that they can't be trusted if a deal goes wrong. I know that eventually a member of Sedo will read this and my parting message is simple: you won't keep my money. I paid for this via PayPal through a credit card, I will start a charge-back. If that fails, I will contact my solicitor and start the appropriate action - I have the means to go down this route even though it's a small amount of money.
