    Hi all

    I have a few domain names registered for projects which never came to fluition and am now looking to sell some of them I have registered them all on sedo and a few are making a few £ on their ppc. I have had an offer for one of my domain names off of sedo but the buy requires an independent appraisal and has also showed interest in a few other of my domains.

    Being new to this game i wondered if someone could give me a brief introduction into selling domains what to look for and the normal process of business so that i dont get caught out.

    Is it the seller or the buys responsibility to get an appraisal? also how much should these cost.

    Many thanks

    Ant

    Sounds like the old 'lets get an apprisal scam'.

    Google it or search on here.

    Listen to Robs advice, don't get tempted, it's definitely a scam :mad:

    As Rob says, more than likely an appraisal scam, which you can read more about on Google here: domain appraisal scams
