Hello all,.

I reluctantly sold a domain here on namepros very recently. I was reluctant because the guy said he would pay me half of the fee straight away then the other half a few days later when he had the funds avalable. I looked into my paypal account and the first installment was there - briefly!.

Shortly after I had pushed the domain I went back into paypal and noticed that the payment had been put on hold while paypal investigated the transaction. I had never seen this before and found it very strange. I contacted the buyer and told me he had seen it before and it would all be cleared up within 2 days. Then came the day when his second installment was to go into my paypal - guess what? nothing. Basically I dont have 1 single penny to show while this guy (who no longer answers my emails) is using my domain as a fully functioning website!.

I contacted godddy and asked them to reverse the transaction but havent heard anything yet and I dont imagine they could help me anyway.

Does anyone have any advice? - other than be more careful in the future!.

Ps the buyer has now been banned from namepros and not for the first time from what I can see.

Godaddy are usually pretty un-helpful in this situation, how much was the sale for??..

Nothing from godaddy yet.

The guy did have a verified paypal account but it appeaers to have been frozen.

The sale was for $210..
