Exactly. And that's why I asked for Campbell1990 to be banned on DNForum.

Really sad to hear Acro.
Why bother making high end offers, coming to a contractual agreement, if you can't/won't follow through?
If the buyer truthfully had a legitimate reason to not pay or to delay payment, they would have ample proof and would more than likely be allowed to delay payment.
Doing this is just irresponsible and a waste of everyone's time.
Acro,..keep up the honerable work. Deals gone bad unfettered, look bad in this community of domainers.
Bad to have a deadbeat buyer.
However, as an aside and probably not related to the message of the OP, I must say that I agree with airmax that it is NOT cool to send a domain into auction after an agreed price from both parties.
I am in no way defending a deadbeat, but I just don't agree sending an agreed deal into auction without both parties' consent
But this is a moot point since he had no intention of buying.
I didn't ask for your opinion allanh and afloat. Next time you decide to do business with me, make sure you a) have the money in the bank and b) you lie better about your car accident.
1. When you post on a public forum, you are essentially asking for everyone's opinion
2. My comments were not directed at you as a person, rather at the events.
3. I purchase all my items on immediate payments (although this has nothing to do this post) unless there is a separate agreement
The point is that both sides should be frank and transparent on what is and what isn't agreed upon and then proceed.
I am not commenting on the fact that this said-person has not paid up, the opinion is only referring to the process of the negotiation. Food for thought.
The bottom line is that a buyer made an offer that I accepted, he got his week-long extension to pay at the agreed upon price and then lied about having had an accident and a lawsuit, thus becoming a deadbeat both on DNForum and sedo.
Appreciate you unraveling this deadbeat's behaviour. As I said, my comments were not related to the goal of this post, so I won't say anything further.
Furthermore, I am not waiving any rights to sue Eric Campbell person in a court of law in the jurisdiction of my choice. I am $6k+ short of money owed and sedo lost their 15% cut. This thread serves only as a repository of my statements related to the event. The personal opinions of everyone else don't matter as there is a trail of PMs and a sedo auction that is already unchangeable.
has it? It was money you thought you were going to get...
And, as for suing the guy, will you really do that? Or is it just a
bit of, perfectly understandable, 'hot air' on your part?
Proving 'malicious intent' on his part will be quite hard anyway,
as it doesn't appear that you can prove a) that he has lied, and
b) that he does this kind of thing consistently.
If a person can put down $7k on a domain, shouldn't he be able to afford car insurance?
