DNForum deal : Seller pushes the wrong domain at GoDaddy

Directnic
Domains for sale by Tim Schoon.

Tim Schoon sold a bunch of LLLL .com domains recently.

A domain investor selling a group of domains, pushed a little extra gift to his buyer: an LLLL .com domain.

The accidental push might have cost him at least $1,400 dollars – the average selling price of a “Chinese premium” domain nowadays.

The sale must have happened months ago, as it completed on the now defunct DNForum and it was supposed to involve LLLL .net domains.

The Chinese buyer has engaged in transactions with the seller several times in the past, but the accidental push of BPBT.com has garnered no response from the buyer yet.

It seems that the domain is now up for sale for $5,800 dollars, according to DomainTools.

As the incident is now six months old, the seller took it to his domain peers at NamePros, where he describes his frustration over this mistake.

Would that be considered “domain theft” or the silent acceptance of an unexpected gift by the seller?

Update: The buyer stated the following to the seller:

“Be honest, i am really don’t know there have any mistake for our deal, because i purchased many domains everyday and have not check each domain, we had many good deals before, so you know we are all honest domainers, same as what my said, if you feel this deal have a mistake, i can gree to cancel this deal and you return the payment to me, i return this deal domains to you, but please note, you need to bear of my domain transfer fees also, this is best way for solve this problem, because i sincerely hope have more deals with you in the future also.”

    It’s a theft actually.

    Scott – It seems that the domain has been resold. Perhaps the “buyer” didn’t notice? Just playing devil’s advocate.

    Looks like the buyer made an “honest mistake” according to his response to the seller:

    “Be honest, i am really don’t know there have any mistake for our deal, because i purchased many domains everyday and have not check each domain, we had many good deals before, so you know we are all honest domainers, same as what my said, if you feel this deal have a mistake, i can gree to cancel this deal and you return the payment to me, i return this deal domains to you, but please note, you need to bear of my domain transfer fees also, this is best way for solve this problem, because i sincerely hope have more deals with you in the future also.”
