I need your help again. I just sold a site on flippa for $3999 and I want to use Escrow.com to finalize ( finalise) the trasaction.
The buyer has wired the money to escrow.com but I need to transfer the domain name to him. I filled the little form on escrow and wrote to the buyer to comfirm I have filled the form on flippa and that I am not sure if that is the right thing to do as namecheap.com which is my registrar for the the domain name in question is not listed and here is what he wrote back to me :
You should just login to your Namecheap account and push the domain to my account under the username "xxxxx" ( removed cos I don't have the rights to post his username here without his permission) . Escrow.com is just waiting for me to tell them I have received the domain and related files. Then zip a mysql database backup and the theme and send to me.
Can't he tell escrow.com I have transferred nothing to him? Thought I am suppose to transfer the domain name to escrow.com and then from escrow.com to him. I know I should have emailed escrow.com to ask but I know for sure that it will take days for them to reply but I need the trasaction done on time and I am scared of being scammed.
Also, Can someone teach me how to zip the files and send it to him when necessary?
Thanks in advance.
