Domainers adopt Discretion.com: Making anonymous domain name offers

A few days back Discretion.com was introduced, by Francois Carrillo as an anonymous email service.

Then I got an email from Discretion.com. I clicked on the link inside thinking it was a promotional message from Francois but I was wrong. It was an anonymous offer for one of my domain names. I tried to reply but as I was using my android mobile phone I wasn’t able to reply and the message was self distracted after a few minutes. I then got another message and I was able to send a reply to the potential buyer.

Sure, you can use Sedo to send anonymous offers or other services but when I get an offer at Sedo I always add 15% (the Sedo fee) to my quote. So if you want to be both anonymous and get a better price then you should use Discretion.com.

So next time you want to send an anonymous offer for a domain name you are interested in, you can use Discretion.com instead of creating a gmail account you will never use again.

  1. Every transaction between two parties has a potential to go awry; either due to an inadvertent misunderstanding, or a deliberate deception.

    It is therefore crucial that communication between parties be preserved from inception.

    Permanent erasure of these communication, or severe anonymity is therefore stupid. The service described here is unnecessary in today’s world.

  2. Konstantinos,

    Yes, people do, but there’s one caveat, which is the basis of our discussion, there’s a record trail even in the fake gmail account; from inception to finality, the record can be invoked anytime, they are never erased in toto.
