Hilarious domain offer from PremiumDomains.net

I got an absolutely hilarious domain offer from a company called PremiumDomains.net, they made an offer on a 4L .COM that I own, NGMT.com. Here’s the email they sent me which was just too funny not to share with the rest of you:

Hello, According to current market prices at domain auction websites, your domain which is classified as a 4-letter .com domain are currently going for $300 for the domains beginning with letter N. I can pay $300 and i’ll also cover any fees so that you’ll receive $300 net.

You also would not be losing the 15% – 20% commission that the domain auction websites take.

Please let me know if you want to move forward with this sale.

Sincerely,

PremiumDomains.net

I love their logic here, four letter .COMs that start with the letter “N” are going for $300 according to current market prices at domain auction websites. I wonder how many people they’ve been able to fool with this lie?

    I got the exact same email from that company with same amount of offer.
    I asked him to please stop sending me any more emails in future.
    Surely no one would be fooled by their cheap strategy because these days every investor holding LLLL.com knows the value and have better idea than crazy PremiumDomains.net team.

    Of course the reasoning is funny … but I appreciate their courage. Most domainers wait for the right domain to fall from the clouds. You have to be active, to send emails, to search until you are tired and then to search a bit more.

    Same exact email word for word on NNNG.com. This right here is the reason legitimate inquiries are rarely ever replied to nowadays. Good job calling this spammer out.

    A lie – that’s exactly what it is. And also what I told them when they emailed me last.

    Let them offer less than the going rate. That’s fine. Leave it at that, and maybe they’ll get lucky.

    But claiming that this is the current market price is obviously untrue, and they certainly know what they’re saying is false. With many kinds of domains, market value has a wide margin of uncertainty. Not here.

    I typically respond in the same spirit and have replied with a similar offer to negotiate in good faith. Based on their thorough market analysis, a similar undertaking completed internally has yielded a value of 30,000,000. Given the efforts made by both parties to complete a fair evaluation of the unsolicited domain in question, it would be reasonable to meet at the midpoint of our offers. In light of the generous offer to cover all closing costs by your company, I will generously reduce the purchase price to 15,000,000 therefore you are essentially receiving the domain for free since we are factoring a value of zero vs your 300 initial offer. Funds will be accepted in usd or euros. Looking forward to an expedited closing.

    That email is really funny. They might have sent it to hundreds of domainers also. I think they might be able to fool some of the newbies in the domaining business. It is foolish for anyone selling their domain names by agreeing to such emails without knowing the values they might get from different sources for their domain. I think people who wants to sell a domain should join forums, contact experts and surely to see the future potential for that particular domain to make sure to get the maximum possible profit they can.
