I'm hoping you can give me some advice on how to proceed in this situation. A few months ago I sold a website on flippa, and after receiving a Paypal payment, I pushed the domain from my Godaddy account to the buyer's Godaddy account. A couple months later I received notice from Paypal that they had determined the payment to have been fraudulent, and I was forced to return the payment I had received.
Because it was a "digital" transaction, Paypal was not able to offer me any seller's protection. Of course I wanted to get my domain back, but Godaddy was not helpful--they told me to contact the buyer or flippa. The buyer did not respond to my emails, and flippa gave me a relisting credit but said they could do nothing about returning my domain. And of course I can't relist the site until I've regained possession of the domain.
I feel that Godaddy should be helping me more with this situation, especially since they acted as the registrar for both buyer and seller. At the very least I would hope that they could point me in the right direction for taking action to regain my domain.
Does anyone have experience with this situation, and can anyone give advice on how best to proceed?
Thanks so much,
