This seems like a new low for Uniregistry domain name brokers and it is really insulting to domain buyers.
I inquired about a domain name in July 2016 and 21 emails later (yes they don’t give up) I received this email from a Uniregistry broker yesterday:
“Our payment plans do not accumulate interest.
When someone is willing to lend me for free I want to listen!
What is a good day to discuss?”
I don’t know if anyone else has received anything like this but that is certainly a first for me.
This is actually insulting to me, it came out of nowhere and also makes little sense at the same time. I don’t want a loan and I certainly didn’t ask Uniregistry for one. And the tone, telling me I should listen, is really plain insulting. I didn’t even reply and I get this out of the blue?
And the opening line makes absolutely no sense to me. So no one else cares about your payment plans but I should listen?
BTW the broker’s initials are MR and the previous email (which I never replied to) from this one above was this:
“Do you have a few minutes to discuss the flexible options we have for paying over time?
I am not making any promises that my client is open to it, but it would be worth a conversation.”
Most people are familiar with some cheeky lines by Uniregistry brokers like the “Are you on vacation?” email or the plain stupid “Get Lost?” email. But this email reinforces my “I don’t like brokers” feeling.
Anyway, I am really sorry for the current state of Uniregistry. It started off really promising and I was truly excited. In the past couple of years it has taken a turn for the worst.
