    wow... i hope it's real!

    i received an offer thru SEDO on 9/29/2005 (yeah, about 13 days ago)...

    SEDO just e-mailed today to say they received the funds and NOW is transfer time.

    so, it can take some time.

    you have to keep us updated please.

    11K for 70virgins.com - WOW!

    good luck.

    70 virgins is a punishment not a reward.

    Middle Eastern terror organizations (PLO, Osama bin Laden, and so on) tell their people that shahids (martyrs) will get the personal services of 70 or so virgins when they go to Paradise.

    -
    That has to be the biggest rip off of all time, I mean come on, they only stay virgins for so long, then what do you do , you blew your self up for a few good night!! lol I would rather just go to vegas

    That's too bad Henny - sorry it didn't work out .... this time.

    If you really think the domain is worth that ballpark figure, it might be worth doing a press release about it and generate some buzz.

    wow I honestly would have not imagined 70virgins.com to have that much in it :)
    edit: you sure the buyer didn't think he was getting a 2 week vacation with 70 virgins in Hawaii? ;)

    edit: didn't see the last few posts here, sorry :(

    I had that happen last time I sold a domain on Sedo. After about a month, they transferred the domain to themselves (Sedo) and released to funds to me. They said they'd take it from there.
