    Let me start this off by saying that recently an issue has been brought to my attention which makes me basically throw up in my mouth. Domainers already deal with enough scams and rip offs that the last thing we need is a industry leading auction company ripping us off, intentionally !

    This issue cannot be ignored and NO ONE is safe from the practice when using Namejet.com . I challenge a Namejet representative to respond to these FACTS and make the issues right by refunding those bidders who have fallen victim to this disgusting practice. Perhaps Acroplex would like to blog about this and take up the cause further.

    The issue is as follows...

    You enter a drop auction at Namejet
    You win said auction
    You then receive a udrp notice for the domain shortly there after
    The udrp notice also informs you the date the original notice was sent to the drop company ( Namejet ) and the fact said company tried to negotiate a sale of said name with obviously no success
    This notice PRE dates the offering at auction by the owner ( Namejet/Registrar )
    Said drop company then decides to auction the name via there service with FULL KNOWLEDGE the name is NOT in a position at that time to be auctioned ( it is a real asshole move ) excuse my french.
    End result you win name, you lose name, Namejet says too bad hahaha

    It has come to my attention this is a COMMON practice not a rarity and Namejet refused to reimburse the winner. Basically ripping them off.

    So in saying that there is no desire by Namejet as far as I see to protect you the buyer, their obvious goal is to cash in before they lose the name. They are for lack of a better term ripping you off :upset:

    Here is a recent post on another board with a similar situation.

    No name is 100% safe. I will cease my use of Namejet and suggest a Rep from that compnay address this issue ASAP. If this was a member doing this they would be and have been banned from this forum.
