aim: monegaboy123 Selling clients


Hello all,

I have just had a quick conversation with monegaboy123 regarding his apparent sale of 115 clients.

It just appears fishy to me, however I'll let you guys form your own opinion and at least there will now be a search result in WHT for anyone else he contacts.

Quote:
volmasoft (11:02:06): Hello there
monegaboy123 (11:02:42): hello
volmasoft (11:03:00): You contacted me at 10:45, how can I help you
monegaboy123 (11:03:06): You buy webhosing clients right?
monegaboy123 (11:03:17): if im correct?
volmasoft (11:03:39): I used to but at the moment it's not what I do. I concentrate on my freelance programming, however it depends on the offer of course
monegaboy123 (11:04:17): Ah right
monegaboy123 (11:04:24): Because i have 115 clients for sale.
volmasoft (11:04:29): okay
monegaboy123 (11:04:29): Earning 1300 Per month.
volmasoft (11:04:43): 1300 what ? $, £, euro ?
monegaboy123 (11:04:52): I may have seen your replies on WHT thread so i added you.
monegaboy123 (11:04:55): 1300 USD $
volmasoft (11:05:08): okay so you have a WHT thread about this ?
monegaboy123 (11:05:35): Actually i dont.
volmasoft (11:06:42): okay, i'd need a full breakdown of the clients
volmasoft (11:13:26): hello?
monegaboy123 (11:13:37): I am here sir
volmasoft (11:13:48): i'd need a full breakdown of the clients
monegaboy123 (11:13:53): I see
volmasoft (11:14:45): are u able to provide this ?
monegaboy123 (11:14:57): Yes i can surely
monegaboy123 (11:15:01): Can i send you a NDA?

monegaboy123 (11:15:08): Also 9000USD price fine
volmasoft (11:15:30): can I ask why you are selling ?
volmasoft (11:15:38): and yes I can sign an NDA
monegaboy123 (11:16:00): Because we are moving from Hosting & Reseller to VPS & Dedicated. And need a good budget
volmasoft (11:16:42): okay I would need a full breakdown of the clients this includes country, how long they've been with you for, when their next billing date is.
volmasoft (11:17:06): I would also need your company's head office address and company number. Also your website address so I can do a lookup
monegaboy123 (11:17:26): Once the NDA is signed i will give you access to the Billing system so you can see everything yourself.
volmasoft (11:18:18): I'm sorry but if you're wanting to SELL then surely you are the one that should be doing the leg work
monegaboy123 (11:18:44): Ofcourse, I will get this done by tonight for you.
monegaboy123 (11:18:45): sorry
volmasoft (11:19:53): okay
monegaboy123 (11:19:59): Can i have your mail again?
volmasoft (11:20:15): again ? You have never had it, you may use #####
monegaboy123 (11:20:38): Is this your MSN?
volmasoft (11:21:15): I do have MSN however you have me on AIM so that is good enough
monegaboy123 (11:21:24): Sure
monegaboy123 (11:21:28): No problem
monegaboy123 (11:21:33): I will send a NDA now
volmasoft (11:21:53): okay, can I ask why you're not advertising this on wht as well ?
monegaboy123 (11:22:54): Because I dont want to keep this wide and have my clients now aboutt he deal.
monegaboy123 (11:22:56): They may go
volmasoft (11:23:36): so use a false username, you're allowed to do this on wht
monegaboy123 (11:23:53): I do not use WHT At all.
volmasoft (11:25:03): but you found me on wht ?
monegaboy123 (11:25:09): Yes, Im a gues
volmasoft (11:25:13): Okay i'm gunna turn this opportunity down it already sounds too fishy
monegaboy123 (11:25:20): Why is that?
monegaboy123 (11:25:45): Im ONLY a guest on WHT. I have never signed up. My Partner USED wht and has a account.
volmasoft (11:26:07): 1) No client breakdown ready. 2) Stating a price very early on. 3) Randomly added me. 4) You say you found me on wht. 5) You don't want to advertise it on wht due to not wanting to lose clients, yet you don't use wht.
volmasoft (11:26:21): What's your website address ?
monegaboy123 (11:26:43): Forget it, Im not intrested either. Im actually was doing a stats for you now.
volmasoft (11:28:05): Now when you turn around like that it instantly reassures me I made the right choice
volmasoft (11:28:26): I'll also be posting this message log on WHT so that others are aware of you
monegaboy123 (11:28:27): You can say so.. Im not in the rush to sell the company.
monegaboy123 (11:28:32): No,
monegaboy123 (11:28:39): Im not a scammer actually.
volmasoft (11:28:50): I didn't say you were, I said "so that others are aware of you"
volmasoft (11:28:56): at what point did I call you a scammer ?
monegaboy123 (11:29:29): Im actually feeling like very sad at this point. As your telling other to be aware of me why?
monegaboy123 (11:29:53): We have got a NDA sorted, But not a FULL STATS of clients?
monegaboy123 (11:29:58): is this why?
volmasoft (11:29:58): They can make their own mind up. I have made mine up.
monegaboy123 (11:30:11): Thats upto you, I have not done anything wrong.
monegaboy123 (11:30:15): Thank you for your time.
monegaboy123 (11:30:16): Bye

To clarify, you must be a member in good standing, have ad privileges with your regular account, then ask for an anonymous account to sell.

I had a similar looking name e-mail with the same type of requests. I kindly confirmed he was e-mailing the wrong type of company!

I'm guessing they are getting the contact details from our public profiles.

Apparently this gentleman is pre-screening for a company that is a member of this website. I am happy he is not as dodgy as he first seemed.

Company name: D*Servers

prescreening == cold calling using contact info gathered from WHT.

Apparently monegaboy123 does not have an account, however the owner of the company does.

I wouldn't do it, but then again I don't know if that's based upon that conversation or my own feelings. Personally I think clients should choose their host, and not the other way around.

He certainly make it sound very dodgy, I don't think he'd get many interested parties contacting people like that

I'd probably consider it spam and ask them to leave me alone. I hate it when people message me on my personal account to try and sell things to me.

It wasn't my personal account however I do consider it as spam as well as I did not ask for them to contact me. Nor have I recently been advertising about wishing to buy clients.

It was a long time ago I looked into it but decided not to.
