    Is this ethical?

    Person lists there domain for sale "sellers Listing Price £100"

    when you bid on the domain they want £20,000

    surely this is in very poor taste because the seller will increase there standing when searching for domains,basically the more offers for a domain they go to the top of the search engine?

    secondly people will bid on it because the sellers expectations are thought to be low

    I've noticed this happening recently on Sedo, and have also bid on a few in this situation. Earlier in the week a domain was listed @ £300, so I bid £300, only to receive a counter offer of £15k.

    I don't have a problem with someone listing a domain for £300 and then receiving a counter of say £500 as things can change from when the seller initially listed the domain, but it is annoying when it goes from £300 to £15k.

    Please could you email me directly with the domains in question and I will advise the sellers on pricing correctly and fairly in the system.

    Kind regards
