Alright gurus. here is one for you.

I sent $700 to the guy (after receiving a paypal request confirming the agreed sale!).

Next day he refunded the money saying he would not require payment again until the domain was pushed. All the supporting emails point to a done deal which was never canceled.

The kid then sold it the next day to someone for $1500 and that guy sold it for 200,000!

So, what do you say ... game on?

According to the legal eagles once this sale was done all other parties are custodians and all proceeds belong to me.

Comments please.

Also, advice. Is this one straight for the jugular via hard-ass lawyers or ICANN route?

I prefer they die of natural causes, preferably without a lot of pain . . or flames . . or spam.

I think there're still some legs left in this thread...
There's quite a few members who haven't voiced an opinion yet.
How do you think they would feel if they didn't even get the chance to vote?

-1 on the plug pulling.

BTW gypsyking: We're just having a bit of fun, so don't take anything personally, and you're still welcome here, it's just that forgetting the 2 years ago part was a bit of what seems to be critical information to leave out of the 1st post.
