Questions to Ask Oversee CEO LogoMike Berkens told me that he and some other South Florida domain investors will be meeting with CEO Jeff Kupietzky this evening in Boca Raton, Florida. Since I can’t be in Florida, I wrote a list of questions that I shared with Mike that I would like to see answered.

I think it’s good that Jeff is reaching out, and obviously this is going to be a casual get together rather than a grilling. Additionally, I am sure he won’t be able to address any of the legal issues surrounding the case, so there really isn’t a point in asking those questions.

  • When did Oversee learn about bidding by an employee?
  • How did Oversee learn that an employee had been bidding?
  • Why did nobody ever investigate bidder “halvarez” after so many complaints over the years?
  • Did Oversee executives ever try to speak to or meet with “halvarez” who accounted for a % of Snapnames revenue?
  • What measures are in place to ensure insider bidding doesn’t happen again?
  • How can domain investors trust Snapnames/Oversee when we were assured halvarez was a real bidder for several years?

  1. ” I am sure he won’t be able to address any of the legal issues surrounding the case, so there really isn’t a point in asking those questions. ”

    If you know that than you know non of these will be answered either. Maybe a little PR as to it wont happen again, otherwise I would be shocked to see any answered straight.

  2. I hope they can, be nice to hear specifically what has be implemented.

    Also glad to see someone ask the tough questions Elliot, good stuff.

  3. @ Josh

    Sadly, these should be the softball questions. Mike’s sent the questions to Jeff, so hopefully he will address them and Mike or someone else will post the answers.

  4. I did but didn’t shoot any video.

    Nothing about SnapNames was brought up during the meetup. I am meeting with Jeff for lunch tomorrow but have a strong feeling that questions about SnapNames is off limits.

  5. Which leads me to assume once a registrar like netsol for example shifted control to snap a close eye was not kept on what happened to the name.. or was it?

    I bet Nelson has so much crap on so many big players there’s likely a secret hope nothing comes out ever.
