    Hi Guys

    Yes, we spotted these last week. On the face of it, the bidders seem unrelated to the seller, and legitimate. Naturally, it it does raise alarm bells though.

    We contacted the bidders last week, and are waiting to here back from them. If we don't hear back in 7 days, we will ban the bidders, and remove the bids.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Its currently at $30,000. Mark maybe your contact to them motivated them. I suppose there is happybanking.com.au owned by bankwest so safebanking.com.au might make sense to a bank and they wouldnt care less about spending $30k

    is it a Bank Mark who is bidding or investor or do we need to watch this space and see to change of registrant when and if it sells?

    well good luck to the seller. Any guesses what its going to sell for people? could it reach $50k?

    This brings up the topic of what a names worth or can go for to a competitive industry with deep pockets once they know about it. ( assuming its a bank who is bidding but who knows)

    Too risky to spend this if you are not a bank so lets see who gets it in the end

    What do you think?

    Wonder what's happening here? I have to say I find it strange that a deal hasn't been done at these levels.
    If they were my domains, I'd be long gone and on holidays by now! :D

    Safebanking.com.au is up to $42,000, but the offer has expired.

    http://www.netfleet.com.au/index.php?a=d&id=56502

    Businessbanker.com.au is up to $30,000, but the offer has also expired.

    http://www.netfleet.com.au/index.php?a=d&id=55408

    What do you think? What would you do if they were yours? Would you have sold?

    They should have sold while they had the chance maybe. The offers expired now so they cant even accept it if they wanted to.

    $42,000 ( ex gst) for safebanking.com.au would have been a great sale for the seller and a very smart buy for a major bank.

    The only reason to not sell is maybe they know the buyer and know they will offer more?

    Netfleet posted here they spoke to the bidders and the bids are real bids so fingers crossed for the sellers they close the deal
