    Flippa is full of scammers mate. I'd stay away if possible. Honestly, if you're asking these kind of questions, you're not ready yet.

    This. If you have to ask these questions, it's probably best to find another site.

    I ran out of breath trying to read your post. But I think the consensus of opinion is not to buy it.

    Stay away from Flippa. Ok, you may get the odd one or two legitimate sites, but you have to ask yourself, if they are all earning this fabulous autopilot income, why are they selling them?

    I bought a site from there and to prove the site was getting 2 sales a day, the site owner used my affiliate links on the sales page, and i got the 2 sales as promised.
    I thought 'great' and bought the site. The 2 sales were quickly reversed, obviously himself doing it. Total scammer.

    Cancel the purchase if you can mate..

    Got to assume you at least did the site:domainname.com search as the first step to see if it is indexed, correct?
