So there is a thread on Namepros where members post, “sell it back to me” email encounters.
So George Quang published one,
Haha i got a joke today.
Get an email from previous owner of a domain that i won in Auction several days. And yes, she made my day.
” This has been my website for 20 years and I would like it back.”
Thanks so much for reaching out to us.
We have listed this domain for $7000 in aftermarket.
But due to you are its previous owner, we can release it for only $3000.
Please let us know if you have any questions.”
“Yes I’m very interested in acquiring XXX back. Please provide the date you purchased my website and how were you notified that it was available?
How do we make arrangements for payment?”
“Hi, we can proceed through Escrow.com”
“Great! I need to know the exact date you purchased my website and how you knew it was available. Provide me that information and then we can proceed. Thank you.”
Kindly check att files. They are screenshots about our NetworkSolutions.com account which contains XXXX.com
Please note that we just provide Domain Name, not Website (you have to have Domain Name first, then using Hosting services to build a website which contents, images .etc.)”
“I offer what you paid to get my website back. Otherwise I don’t need it.”

You steal people’s websites. This is a predatory practice and I feel sorry for the kind of person you are. You can’t feel good about what you do right?
Whatever you need to tell yourself to feel better about what you do. You acquire other people’s and businesses websites and hold the ransome. If you don’t pay for your sins in this life you will in the next.
Don’t lie to yourself. You’re a horrible person. I owned that website for 20 years. How can you live with yourself?
