Receiving lowball offers via email isn’t something new; the stories I could share are numerous, but for today I’ll be focusing on the ‘poor student’ type.
Apparently, those poor students have moved on from making lowball offers from behind a disposable email address, to actually registering an account on Sedo.
While it’s good to ignore those idiots instead of responding with a scathing email about their idiocy, by using Sedo one is more or less obligated to respond.
My counter-offer to their $60 offer was met with the following comment:
“Come on man, 3k for a domain. I just need this for a school competition, can you lend it/rent it to me?”
At that point, obviously, I canceled the transaction.
Sedo should change their requirements regarding how one qualifies to open a Sedo account; those with sub-100 IQ should be blocked out.
