You probably are, I doubt Francois would scam you or anybody else - it would be suicide for his site, why don't you just contact him and clear the issue up ?
I'v noticed that domaining.com keeps changing from free to login, must be a glitch.
Highly unlickely Francois would try and scam anyone, never mid simple domainers.
Better of sending an email to them instead of posting this kind of stuff on a public forum.
Contact them and see what happens...
Below is the response to my mail. But all my login information was valid. And also shouldnt be any disclaimer or something like that on the listing purchase page that domaining.com can delete my listing. But believe me there wasnt anything related to that. Just log in to that site and see it for yourself.

Accounts with a fake information were deleted look likes you were in the lot..
Sorry. If you sign up again ensure to all information provided be accurate...
Have you contacted Francois to try and rectify the problem?.
Francois put an enormous amount of time and money into Domaining.com... He certainly isn't going to scam anyone for $5 and I'm sure Francois will be more than happy to make things right...
Otoh, if you contact info was fake, they're well within their rights to delete any sale w/o notice, read their TOS.
I really doubt any serious domainer / domaining site would cheat you for even $500, let alone $5..
I have contactedAnd they sent me the answer in the post above. Maybe Francois can have a good reputation hereabout, but what he or/his folks have done is unprofessional. Anyway I'm not going after my 5 bucks, but this kind of an unprofessional approach makes businesses fail..
Then contacting them is the best option.
Your $5 is not worth the time or attention tbh.
