    See how I got into some real trouble. Need some help before I get fu**ed by Godaddy.

    I joined the Godaddy auction membership and was looking to buy some expiring domains. I wanted to get some PR3 and 4 domains (no more 2).

    But once I started browsing and checking domains I placed bids on more than 70 domains. Everytime I placed the bid the popup window appeared asking to agree the terms. So, I didn't realize that these terms means that they are going to charge me once I won the bid. I realized this when I got my first email today after winning the bid which state that they are going to charge my paypal (default method used for joining).

    So, the problem here is that I won over many domains which I didn't want to buy. I just wanted to buy 2-3 domains. They will start to charge me right after 2 days for the domains. I thought that we would have a option to pay or not for the domains else it goes to the 2nd bidder.

    So, can you tell me how would I escape that. This has turned out to be good lesson for me to always read the terms before I agree.

    Some points that may help you in helping me out-

    1) I am a noob
    2) I am based in India
    3) I paid through Indian paypal account having a VCC (Indian paypal don't allow payment through balance or bank account hence paid through VCC)

    4) I cancelled the billing agreement of Godaddy from Paypal, but that was just for $5 for auction membership, I am not sure if they can still bill my paypal account or not for the domains (need help on this).

    5) I deleted my VCC from paypal
    6) I deleted my membership in Godaddy and deactivated paypal payment method.
    7) I updated my account and replaced my real info with a fake Columbia guy ID, number, address etc from fakenamegenerator (I know I am not doing any good here since they have my address through my first paypal payment).

    So, can anybody here throw some light on the consequences or how can I escape those. Isn't there any way to stop Godaddy from billing my paypal account (will cancelling the $5 agreement help).

    Its an auction man

    you bid - you win - you pay

    Anyway I doubt they will do much in the end since your way over there in India, your paypal will most likely be banned and your name/address black listed
