    mmg.co.uk - sale didn't complete via sedo last time.

    I actually sold MMG.CO.UK on sedo on Jun/30/11 but the buyer pulled didn't complete the transaction, seems to be happening a lot these days, even amongst people i would class as professional domainers.

    So beware of this company if they are the bidders >

    ===========================
    Contact Person : Daniel Layton

    MMGRP Limited.
    145 – 157 St Johns Street
    London
    EC1V 4PW
    United Kingdom
    Company Registration Number: 07527443

    Website > mmgrp.co.uk
    ===========================

    May be worth contacting Dave at sedo just to check its not them again...

    Good luck with the sale.

    Best,
    Barry

    Hi Barry, thanks for the heads up, I don't know who Dave at Sedo is, do you happen to have an email address for him that you could PM to me?

    I've only had 1 non payer so far on Sedo, that was my last auction sale on there, they won the auction for this domain, non payers details in last post:

    http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/domain-name-auctions/92909-horse-racing-cards-co-uk.html

    A week ago, I received an email out of the blue asking if I wanted to sell one of my neglected horse racing sites, I replied and sent them a list of all my racing names and asked them if they were interested in any others, and to make their best offer, they chose 2 other names to go with the site they were after and offered £1,200 for them.

    I Googled their email address and found a listing on a gambling site, it turns out the potential email buyer was freebets.co.uk, I did a Who-Is on that domain, the registrant address rang a bell but I couldn't think why, and then I remembered, it is the same address given to me by Sedo after the person failed to pay on the link above, so I've just ignored them and not bothered replying to them since their email offer, clowns.

    I had an email from Dave at Sedo saying they can't give out any details about the buyer, which is understandable.

    Anyway, I'll know soon enough, this auction ends in just under 10 hours.

    @ Barry, the buyer has a different name to the one you posted above, but it's the same address:

    No idea how to do PDF's, I cannot see the point in PDF's at all when it's easier to write in plain text, also, I have no fax to send anything, so they can have the text invoice I replied with in the Sedo reply box or nothing.

    CutePDF software is good and free, allows you to create a PDF file from anything which is printable.

    @ WB, downloading the cutepdf thing, not sure if I'll know how to work it though, will I be able to load the word document from Sedo that I downloaded on to the PDF maker?

    The Sedo rep provided me a word document invoice to download and said that would be sufficient, but when I open word documents on this computer, it asks for a product key, which I don't have, as I never use anything like that, so it must have expired or something, it only lets me read documents, but not edit the text on them in, I don't use any programs on the computer apart from notepad for plain text.

    [edit]

    I can't use the cutepdf thing, it prompts me to download some other thing as it wont work without it, so I click to download that and then this page opens:

    file://localhost/C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Acro%20Software/CutePDF%20Writer/README.HTM

    That appear to require a printer to operate it, I don't own a printer :( Even if I had a printer, I still wouldn't be able to use the Sedo word document, as I can't open the document and select anything in the file menu of the application without the product key, as it's all greyed out

    Sedo just replied to my message stating I can't use theor Word document:

    Nothing further that I can do now to provide an invoice, and no way I can add a signature to anything as I don't have a printer or scanner.

    Yep, as long as it lets you print the document you will be able to. The software adds itself as a virtual printer, so will appear in the list like a normal printer would. After you hit the print button, a dialogue box pops up asking where to save the PDF file.

    @ WB, thanks, but even if it's a virtual printer, that still leaves the problems that I can't physically sign the document with my signature, which is what the buyer is requesting.

    [edit]

    Had an idea, will ask Sedo if it's alright first. Idea is, get a sheet of paper, write out what's on the Word invoice, sign it, and then take a photo of it, upload that to my computer and upload to Sedo, might work, will ask them.

    Sign a piece of paper, take a photo of it, e-mail it to me along with your text invoice and the Word document from Sedo and I'll sort it out and e-mail you back a PDF.

    Mmg.co.uk - mmg

    I hope they complete this time around as they were time wasters previously and totally ignored any emails sedo were sending, personally i think they should have been suspended from the platform.

    Good luck chuck.

    Best,
    Barry

    @ Barry, they have at least answered Sedo this time to ask for an invoice before they make payment, I assume they initially asked you for an invoice, then ignored contacts after that?

    They must have been, as their Sedo details say their new account was registered in Janaury

    A big thanks to Kev (dotNetFreak) for his help in supplying me with a PDF invoice, which has been uploaded to Sedo.

    That's correct, for about 2 weeks i thought the sale was going to complete but nothing... fingers crossed it will be different for you, personally i think you will be ok as i cant imagine the same company trying it on twice, surely... if they did sedo should instantly remove their account as its not acceptable.

    Have a good rest of the weekend.

    Best,
    Barry

    @ Kev, thanks, hadn't seen that page, might come in handy if they mess about again like they did with Barry.

    @ Barry, I thought that might be the case, they wont be getting 2 weeks from me, if no payment comes within a week, I'll be telling them sale is now off but, as you say, hopefully it will go through this time, or they're very foolish, and are in for a bad time.

    [edit]

    I've made Sedo aware in the transfer centre that this buyer failed to pay after winning this name before, and that I won't be waiting 2 weeks for them to remit payment, I stated that I'll give them until the 24th, which is plenty of time to make a payment, and if by that time no payment has been made, I'm withdrawing it from sale to them.

    No doubt Sedo will reply saying something along the lines of, the sale is legally binding, unfortunately, it's not, it means nothing, otherwise why don't Sedo chase non buyers and get them to pay, and I'm quite happy for them to close my Sedo account as I wont be waiting around for payment from a non payer.

    [edit]

    Sedo seem understanding about me putting a time limit on the buyer making payment, due to their non payment last time:

    @ Kev, yeah, I had seen the address was an accommodation address used by loads of different businesses, but with the previous non payer being MMGRP Ltd, chances are it is them again.
