Mystery Domain Name for Sale at Ebay.com

I have to admit it. People’s creativity in scams never seizes to amaze me. I was browsing the domain names for sale at Ebay.com when I found this for sale: “Mystery Domain Name”. I was curious to see what great “mystery” domain the seller had for sale. Was it mystery-now-you.com or myname-is-mystery.com? Well guess what? You don’t get to know what crappy domain you are buying until after you have won the auction! And the opening bid is set at $10. The photo posted with this item says that “This Domain Name Can Fit Any Type You Want”.

Isn’t it great? To get this great premium domain name for only $10. Of course I am only kidding!!! I bet it is something like greatest-domainname-ever-fitsanytype.com that the seller bought for $0.99 at Go Daddy. Oh did I forget it comes with free shipping too! So hurry!

Well don’t because the “domain name” didn’t sell the first time and the seller had to relist it. Too bad that somebody lost out on this great! Bid with confidence! NOT!!!

  1. it’s illegal per Ebay rules to run a mystery box auction.

  2. Great find, please keep us updated if you find out the domain name 🙂

  3. It’s probably this domain, which matches the description and is also offered by the seller:

    http://m.ebay.com/itm/201019144491?cmd=VIDESC

  4. Ebay specifies that you can’t sell an item with an “inappropriate item description” so it won’t be listed for long.

  5. This is quite funny. And yeah “it comes with free shipping too!” that made a laugh 😀
    Wonder who is going to win this auction!
