    I had listed a domain name for sale here on DNForum, friended.com .

    After receiving no offers that met my expectations I listed it at GreatDomains auctions this past month with a reserve of $2,000.

    I was then contacted by a long time member here at DNForum who offered me $2k for the domain. I told him I listed it at GreatDomains auction that was coming up and coincidentally the reserve was $2k.

    On feb 22 he replied to me "Good luck with the auctions! "

    The domain went to auction and it sold for $3,100.

    On March 7th he emailed me and asked "Did you sold the domain? "

    I replied the same day that the domain had sold but I was still waiting for payment.

    He replied to me that day
    "
    If they don't complete I offer $2000. Keep me posted.

    Regards,
    Emil"

    After waiting almost a month I asked Sedo to cancel the transaction since the buyer was not paying.

    Sedo ended the transaction and provided me the buyer's contact info in case I wanted to pursue legal action.

    The buyer's name?

    Moscom LLC
    Emil Mendoza
    12587 Fair Lakes Circle #248
    Fairfax, VA 22033
    United States



    Coincidence? I think not.

    This is the member here on DNForum

    I do a whois lookup on king.net and what do I find:

    Emil Mendoza (emil@king.net)
    +1.7035014981
    Fax: +1.7035014981
    12587 Fair Lakes Circle #248
    KING OF THE NET
    Fairfax, VA 22033
    US

    This has to be one of the shadiest moves I've seen. He outbid someone else (who wanted the domain and ideally would have paid) knowing that he would not pay, and hoping he could buy it through email for less from me, and I would never know what he did. I guess he did not know that Sedo releases the winning non-paying bidder's information. Stupid you Emil, and now wipe that egg off your face.

    I am requesting that this guy get booted off of DNForum for pulling this stunt. Definitely the most scummy move I have seen.

    Thanks for wasting my time and costing me a sale Emil. Appreciate it.
