    Mark, this sort of bait offering seems to be the new norm, had the same ish with a .academy domain offered $1,000, I countered at $5K, then he said let’s meet in the middle at $3,500, then he said sorry I can’t do it on their own offer.

    I guess it is easy to be a big man over email, but when it is time to pull out the check book, and close the sale the real man comes out.

    WUSA.com might come with a whopping UDRP, given that WUSA is a major market in Washington, D.C.


    I’m not sure I would want to buy this trouble.

    Besides, WSUX.com is better (LOL), which I own.

      Thanks for pointing that out Jenny, it’s always good to do a little research before you invest in a domain.

      • Gannett has an old TM on WUSA for Nice class 38, and there are three recent TMs for classes 7.9 and 42, owned by a Chinese company. (Source: USPTO).
        In Europe there are two more live TMs for classes 25,32,33,9,35,38,42.

        IMHO it’s safe if you use it for a different class of products.

        This is the “trouble” Jenny Lee was mentioning, see below:

          A different use may be okay, but the way some of these UDRP decisions are going lately is troubling.

          Buyers just need to be aware and think before spending big bucks on something that might be snatched away.

          Also, once acquiring this to be sure that it’s not parked with a bunch of WUSA radio ads.

          Depending on who catches the domain: this could go for BIG bucks.

        • Great comment enjoyed reading it thanks keep up great work and excell research

  3. “I accepted his offer, then he came back with β€œI’m not interested anymore sorry”
    It’s one of lowballers tactics to get a fire-sale price, thinking that we are in a hurry to sell … hahaha, they are just pathetic … πŸ˜€

    “Premi.com – Another interesting 5L, $8.9k Estibot and lots of NJ bidders”
    Mark, “premi” in Italian means “prizes”, “awards”. πŸ˜‰
    It’s curious to see it was dropped by a Dutch multinational, DSM.

  4. Mark,
    these people are everywhere.
    These are people that don’t honor their word.
    Scam of the earth.

    My 2nd grade daughter was kicked out of a “private” and self proclaimed “elite” club…Banned!..She was hurt, but she ended up finding sincere, honest and caring friendships…Relationships based on truth, not secrets……Her happiness and success has never been better……..Yes, this comment has everything to do with domaining…..

  6. Ram says:

    Mining Company owner surely will comeback with better offers because currencytips.com is not available & seller must accept $10k + offers for aged domain.

    DOD: BitcoinService.org

  7. Way Too Easy to offer but even easier to say just changed my mind sorry there should be a list to name these people so the rest of us don’t waste time and money on them

    Slze.com or dcks.com should have these people on it lol
