    Hey guys,

    I saw a Flippa auction that went for just about $7000, but the site looked terrible, and I'm almost positive it got almost no traffic (It had a YouTube video on the landing page that only has about 300 embedded views.). The seller said that it's made over $4000/per month the past few months from ClickBank alone as well as 66k UV/month. I can almost guarantee they were lying about the CB earnings and Visitors. So is this legal?

    do you think the buyers were idiots and just dished out $7k over some screen shot?

    I am not being sarcastic.... I am seriously asking that.

    Are buyer on flippa that enthuz and naive.


    to answer your question.
    Yes. It's illegal to inflate your earnings/stats/etc to sell a business in the US.

    anyone with a brain would do more research, i mean seriously if i was spending 7k for a domain even if i was dumb and had no clue i would find someone that did, per say an expert. just because a site looks shitty or only has 1 video does not mean it can not rake in money.

    i have seen sites with 1 article and just EMD rank well and rake in nice chunks of cash and traffic.
