    "Hello there,

    I am contacting you to offer you some cold, hard cash. Unfortunately in this case you have not won the lottery, nor do I need you to help me wire a ridiculous amount of money.

    I am contacting you in relation to the domain name which I am aware that you own.

    I was just curious as to whether you would be prepared to sell the rights of ownership to this name to me? If so, I how much would you want?

    Payment would happily be rendered through any medium you feel safe utilizing.

    I would greatly appreciate a response in a timely manner."

    I am willing to sell the domain, but since I have no experience in doing so, have no idea how much he is willing to pay and the right way about getting the most I can for it.

    Any suggestions?

    First things first: Make sure he doesn't say ok well go list it here. There is some scam where he gets money if you go list it. I can't remember exactly but look on this site and you will stumble upon it somewhere. He really doesn't want to buy it just acting like he does.

    This may very well be a serious buyer though. So with that said in any negotiation whoever states a price first LOSES. So I would write him back something like well I would be interested in selling this domain for the right price. What kind of price did you have in mind?

    Now hopefully he will state a price and if he is smart he will say a low enough number that won't offend you and you will either accept or it is in a range that you would counter. The nice thing about having this guy say a number first is his number might be much higher than what you were willing to sell it for.

    So what I would do is think of a number that you would be happy selling this domain for and see if you can get it. I have no idea of the value of that domain but it is certainly not anything crazy high.

    Say 2500$

    If it's too high. he'll flat out deny, and that's where you ask him what price he would consider just then.

    If he accepts it, you'll know you could have requested more.

    Google his email address and see if others have reported him as a scam. I almost fell for one of these.
