GoDaddy Scam – hostage negotiations
“My” domain oncallresumes.com is now worth $900 thanks to GoDaddy, hostage department. For years, I’ve tried to purchase it back. I let it lapse. Now, to repurchase the price is $900 thanks to GoDaddy, which advertises domain name purchases at 99 cents.
Which is mean spirited and penurious corporate greed – Because, it is buried under layers of corporate names.

NOTE: GoDaddy does not consider this practice a scam. So, for the sake of legal CLARIFICATION… THIS IS NOT A SCAM BUT A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS PRACTICE that they spent hundreds of thousands – millions of dollars for. Ergo, the need to profit from that investment.
