    im gonna cry right now -when they released the .me extensions recently i decided to get in earlyand waited for the second they released-2 of the first ones we fgot was sue.me and insure.me- we called godaddy and they said alls good so we handed over cc details and added them to my real estate

    next day godaddy sends an email they didnt go through and i dont own it
    i had an email saying i did and not only that we did it live over the phone how could they fuck it up

    anyways i got over it until i just saw this thread

    http://forums.seochat.com/affiliate-marketing-58/date-me-sells-70-000-on-t-r-a-f-214689.html

    insure.me just went for fucking $68000

    i feel violated

    i fucking have a piece of paper that says that domain is mine

    hmm interesting. So you're saying that if i register a domain like.. for example fuck.me and i put it for sale i might get a couple of thousands..or do i have to actually have a built website..sorry im sort of a noob at this. But im interested

    If you have an email stating you are the owner, then you could possibly file a complaint through a lawyer and get some good $$$ back your way.
    I would fight back if I were you dude.

    damn dude, I would be crying too. Then I would man up and call a lawyer! Of course, I'm not a man so maybe I'd woman up. IDK

    Yeah, I think that's at least worth a phone call to an attorney.

    if you read the fine print on jewdaddy's terms, you will notice they don't guarantee you get it just because you register it then. :( with lots of other registrars clamoring to register domains it's possible one of them was faster than jewdaddy at grabbing the domains.

    The key is in the credit card transaction. Do you have something that says you paid GoDaddy for the two names during the sunrise period?

    If you do take that transaction and a copy of the original email read through the Challenge Policy (attached) If you meet all the terms file an ownership dispute at www.domain.me/ or at Godaddy,

    Checking the Whois for INSURE.ME it looks like a godaddy insider got the name as the purchaser is from Phoenix Arizona.

    Given the value of the domain it may be worthwhile to throw a couple grand at a lawyer

    Alternatively, if you tie up the domain someone may offer you afew thousand to go away

    The GoDaddy (and other registrars) account executives routinely go through the lists of people who have put "dibs" or purchases on upcoming domains and buy them themselves. Shitty way of doing business, but these guys make a boat load since they control who gets it.

    Yes i had a domain that i asked my "agent" to register. The next day the domain was register in another name. It was not a dot com and nobody thought about it before. Guess if i changed agent after that.
