Selling domain names on eBay or any other place can be a reliable business in case you have very popular domains, but if you don’t there is always a chance to disguise them as being a great name and hope that people fell for it.
For example, DRLNK.com was being sold on eBay disguised as DRINK.com – View the auction and check it yourself, isn’t it a bit misleading? The price difference between each domain is huge, in one side there is an expensive 5 letter dictionary word (drink) while on the other there is a cheap 5 letter domain (drlnk), and some people fell for it bidding much more ($3,000) than its normal value.
How was the disguise made?
- In the listing description, the seller uses capital D,R,N and K but mixes in a lowercase L (l) so that it looks like an I (i).
- The seller time and time again claims that the word is drink but tries to deceive by saying exactly as: “This is NOT a dynamic name, it is the actual domain: DRlNK.COM”.
- The image is misleading as well.
