Domain industry attorney Jason Schaeffer reported today that three of his clients received $60,000 offers to buy domain names, and the supposed prospective buyer requested an “appraisal certificate” in order to proceed with a deal.
3 clients this week had $60K offers through GoDaddy. Each appeared to be from Japan requesting an “Appraisal Certificate.” Screen shot of the result: Pay $349 to appraise and verify your domain name. A good way to lose $349. #domaining #domainnames pic.twitter.com/F3wOEKaCIU
