    Hey I was just wondering if anyone could help me out. I sold a website and the buyer requested a file that I was late to deliver, he then demanded a refund and I stupidly got scared and gave him the money before he gave me the website. But he decided not to return the website. Is there anything that can be done, can I file a lawsuits or something? He claims he gave it back, but he just gave me wp login. I know I messed up, but instead of criticizing me can you just say if there is any way to get the site back?

    Were you dealing on some sort of website selling platform?
    Where you were exchanging messages?

    I sold it on flippa a year ago, but yesterday I managed to contact the guy and he said "Dude the domain longgg been out of my hands i think i let it expire." I looked at the Whois www networksolutions.c*m/whois/results.jsp?domain=Insanity-reviews.net and asked him what he did with it, but he didn't respond.

    Why have you waited a year? Sounds fishy to me.

    I don't think you will be successful in claiming ownership after a year but good luck if you are genuine.

    WTF!! Seriously, Why did you even remember this after one year. It's just a waste of time.
