Dealing with Ajay Chadha

In June 2016 I received an unsolicited email from someone called Ajay Chadha wanting to purchase a domain name from me. The following is copied and pasted from the email correspondence we shared.

The reason I share this with you is that I've been through this many times over the years, with many different idiots and the end result is always the same.

Some second rate idiot working for a second rate organization producing third rate software and games products who thinks he's number one with the biggest brown dick on the block gets all excited over a momentary half arsed rush of blood to his rubbery little pecker and then decides to contact me to see if I want to hold hands and knock the top off it with him.

Fuck off small man, I do not!

I would sell the domain 27red.com. Give me a figure in USD of what you think it's worth and we'll go from there.

Hi Adrian
Appreciate the reply. I am comfortable paying you $300 dollars for the domain. That's all I can really afford if I'm honest so I don't your waste your time or mine.

At this point with the $300 offer I decide this bloke is a joker and don't bother to get back to him.

Hi Adrian,
Would you consider $5,000 dollars?
Thanks,

Amazing what a few days being ignored can do.

Ajay,

I published my first website in 1996. Over the years in my IT career I’ve been involved in the selling and purchasing of a number of domain names. 27red.com in not just a good domain name it’s a GREAT domain name. Dictating my email address or URL to people over the phone or in person is almost too easy. I have been contacted in the past by different people wanting to purchase this domain so at $5000USD it’s a bargain, and you know that!

So if you want to own 27red.com here is the deal.

1. The price is $7500USD. Paid into my bank account. I’ll send you the details if you agree.

2. I want you to setup and maintain the email address xxx@27red.com for a period of 3 months so that I can inform my client base and make the numerous different website account login changes ect.

3. Sorry mate but this bit is just bad timing. The day before you first contacted me, on the 16th of June I started to re-delegate the domain to a new hosting provider. As you know .com’s always take seven days so that process will be finalised on Thursday 23rd June. Now as you should also be aware domain names can not be traded again for a period of, I think, two weeks. Now i’m not sure why that is, and I may be able to speed the process up, but again it’s just bad timing.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Adrian

Ajay,

FYI. I’ve stopped the re-delegation of 27red.com. My new hosting provider don’t look to be very good and they can’t explain why it was taking longer than usual so I stopped it.

For you that’s good news because if you want to go ahead with the purchase there is now no waiting period.

Hi Adrain,

Ajay.

Now that right there is an agreement to go ahead with the deal.

Hi Adrian,

I don't feel 100% comfortable just transferring you money - I live in L.A and you are based in Australia if you decide not to send me the code?

Let me know your thoughts.

Ajay.

Adrain,
We need to use official methods, please look at the link I sent you.
Ajay.

I was under the impression this person knew a little about the Internet and domain hosting and transferr. Was I wrong? So at this point I decided to look into this Ajay Chadha a little further and did a Google search on his name. A search that returned surprisingly few "Ajay Chadha's", and fewer who resided in L.A., so I soon found his LinkedIn profile and from there the unfortunate organization he worked for.

If you wish to perform a search you may, but from what I could see he should know how this shit works, and any pretense that he didn't was unnecessary jerking off.

Ajay,
I've looked at the information at the URL you sent and that does explain the process. So as soon as payment is made I'll unlock the domain and send you the authorisation code (EPP code).

Hi Adrian, who is your Internet domain registrar?

From: xxx@27red.com

Subject: RE: 27 Red Domain

27red.com is registered with GoDaddy

I was by this time more than a bit sick of dealing with this idiot so when I didn't hear from him for a few days I decided not to contact him again.

HI Adrian,
Sorry for the delay, I'm speaking with Go-Daddy this to work out the best way to exchange the domain.
Thanks,
Ajay.

I ignored this and went on holiday.

...

On the 27 August 2016 I thought I'd have a bit of fun and send Ajay an email.

Ajay,

The reason I emailed you today was not so I could read one of your short, unintelligent mildly misleading replies, but to let you know I have another, very similar $$$ offer for 27red.com. This guy tells me he operates online casinos and gambling??? Problem is this nuff nuff is even more of a malingerer than you are. O’well who ever comes up withe cash first.

It’s now $10,000USD.

Adrian

Now that's not entirelty inaccurate. I do get regular enquiries from idiots wanting to purchase this domain, but it always ends up the same way.

No shit! But at least now he's stopped jerking off in my direction.

I did send him another email telling him he's a dickhead but I don't think it's worth publishing here. That was the end of our correspondence.

This domain is not for sale.
