    ****in scammer

    Glad I caught this, my feeling was correct about this guy from bonbon.net named Mark. He was interested in a .info name for $1100, but demanded an appraisal and has slowly worked the emails towards using alldomains. I told him its fine if he paid for it and we deducted it from the sale price and I never heard back

    Happy New Year everybody

    kayat@bonbon.net is a scam artist

    Domainers Beware!

    This schmuck just tried scaming me. If i didn't read these forums I probably would have fell for it. Please read below.

    Hello,

    I'm interested in your domain name. Hope you have not sold it yet.

    Did you get offers from other people?

    I need to know your desired price. Please don't ask to make an offer. Just email the desired price. I run a software company. We develop client-server systems and databases in Oracle for a local company. Buying and selling domain names is not my main business. Just another way to invest money and make additional income. I wish you and your family Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Best regards,

    5,000 USD. Ok.

    Can you provide me with independent valuation (appraisal)? I need such valuation for name priced in your range. I consider your name as an investment. In other words I'm going to sell your name later and make a profit. If I overpay I won't be able to make a profit in the future. It's very important for you and me to know the current market value of your domain.

    Of course, we must be sure that you are engaging a reputable appraisal company. I heard many appraisal companies often made inaccurate appraisals.
    I will only accept appraisals from independent appraisal companies I know and trust.

    To avoid mistakes I asked domain experts about reputable appraisal companies in a forum

    http://domaintalk.ourplace.com/Archive/51037.htm

    Juck check this posting.

    If the appraisal comes higher you can adjust your asking price accordingly.

    After I get an appraisal from you we'll continue our negotiations.

    How do you prefer to get paid: www.PayPal.com, www.escrow.com, check or wire?

    Hope we can come to an agreement fast.

    duped

    Here I am thinking I'm the worlds savviest, seen-it-all Internet dude and I got duped too.

    In my case, he used the "Frank Moss PHD" alias.

    BTW, hello, very good forum. This is my first post here but probably not my last...

    Thanks for the post about this -- this guy contacted me using "'Paul Deegan'" <pdeegan@bonbon.net>.

    Anywhere there is money to be made, there are people willing to separate you from it.

    I got an email from bonbon.net - same basic format as those above with slight variances. So I thought I'd play with the guy a bit. He wanted to "buy" my domain name because he thought it was very valuable. I told him he could have it for $20 LOL! No response.... So a few days later (today) I wrote back to him and told him I made a mistake and that I was actually asking $2,000, not $20. I got this email back in SECONDS.


    ***************************************
    2,000 USD. Ok.

    Do you offer a web site or domain name only? I'm mostly interested in names.

    Do you have an appraisal certificate?

    Domain name is an investment for me. In other words I'm going to sell your name later and make a profit. If I overpay I won't be able to make a profit in the future. It's very important for you and me to know the current market value of your domain.

    So fast, actually, you'd be a fool to think it wasn't already written!

    So of course I berated him and showed him a couple references to his scam. How can people who do business like that live with themselves?? It's incredible to me...
    Always remember that your domain is unique. Just like everybody else.

    Keep annoying the BonBon guy...

    I suggest everyones keeps this guy going for as long as possible so eventually he gives up as his earnings per hour for the effort he has to put in will not be worth it.

    I need a proof (independent valuation) that your price is fair. I hope you
    understand the importance of this question.

    Domain sellers always provide buyers with certificates. This is a common
    practice.

    I heard many appraisal companies often made inaccurate appraisals. So I
    cannot accept appraisal from each and every site. I will only accept
    appraisals from independent appraisal companies I know and trust.

    Reading responses from experienced sellers I was impressed by one reply:
    "Many Internet users are not smart enough and popular domain brokers are
    using this fact to make money. They offer them cheap appraisal services. But
    if their customers would have something in their heads they'd understand
    experts could not make a professional research for $15-$20. These appraisals
    are made by machines. Easy money for such appraisers as
    http://www.Afternic.com and several other major brokers that offer cheap
    auto-generated appraisals. In my eyes, all services under $60-$65 are not
    manual and the results are generated by special scripts. I don't trust auto-generated appraisals."

    The same is true for GoDaddy and SEDO. Their services are not manual. They
    are just collecting money using their well-known names.

    Thank you for understanding. I'm looking forward to do business with you.

    The first email I recieved.
    ==================

    Hello,

    I found your name for sale surfing sites of the domain brokers. What is your price?

    I'm interested in this name and my intentions are serious.

    Did you get offers from other people already?

    I run a software company. We develop client-server systems and databases in MS SQL and Delphi. Buying and selling domain names is not my main business. Just another way to invest money and make additional income.

    Looking forward to do business with you.

    What is your price range: $5,000 or $10,000 or even higher?

    Please send it to me via email as soon as possible.


    The 3rd email I recieved.
    ======================

    3,600 USD for all. Ok.
