    So I was in the position to test out Seo Lover new domain service. Wasn't no more than 30 seconds
    after I posted on his BST some asshat messaged me trying to undercut him. If any of you guys doing
    this are reading this thread then NO I will not buy from you on principle.

    Of course I reported him and the reason I created this thread is to encourage other people to never
    buy from clowns like this and to just click the report button. Supporting the legitimate BHW economy
    is one of the best things you can do for the forum and its community.

    Cheers!

    I did post the PM and its an image at the top. Since it has a black background it fades into my post.
    Undercut means he is trying to offer the domains cheaper and spamming people who post on a
    legit BST.

    undercut would mean that the undercuter would send him a pm
    telling op to buy a domain from him at a lower price then seolover is selling at

    I think, op means unsolicited PM. I do get these type of PM's regularly.

    As stated in my OP I reported him and will let the staff come up with the appropriate action against
    him since their the arbitrators here. Not outing him because I don't want people to buy from him.

    Anytime you run across a situation like this you are trying to balance actual helping with potential
    healthy exposure for people like this. I don't want to raise awareness in the wrong way and shoot
    myself in the foot.

    I did get this type of PMs too when I posted questions in the BST. I simply never replied them. Thats the reason I perfer to PM BST seller instead.

    Yes, I am also receiving too much PMs like this since I buy a lot of product from BHWs BSTs.
    It happens to most of the member who are active in the BST section.
    They only do this because they dont want to pay for VIP membership and BST cost.
    Just report and move on.
    I always do that and will keep on doing.
    Can't blame staff if no action is taken against him because they are also busy.
    So all we can do is be cautious and report. :)

    Not that it matters but was it a new member or established? If they are regular members they ought to know better, not that it seems to mean much for some these days!

    Anyway hopefully they will get banned for this.

    but before you do that, hit the report button
    i hardly report any pms, but that's just because i don't get many from this type fortunately, however today i also received one, not this exact same one though, but i reported it, i guess others did the same, the sender of the pm got banned since then

    and it's not even friday...

    some of them are just people who sell services like

    i post on youtube views selling bst. The next thing is a guy who pms me telling me that I can try his views for free and then let him know.
    Why not just open a bst, or if you dont have money then wait till you have money and then open a bst.

    An example of undercutting is when there are many merchants on Amazon offering the same thing, and they all try to undercut each other. It's offering the same product or service for a lower price.
