It was in the early morning hours of January 16th where a user by the name of 12no3 on the domain forum NamePros claimed that Shane Bellone scammed him of $5,805. This simply is not true. In fact, it’s the seller that tried to pull a fast one over Shane.
Shane Bellone filed a dispute to PayPal claiming that the domain names sold to him were not as described. The portfolio in question was registered at a registrar in which the ccTLD .in transfers were not supported. When this was realized by Shane, it ultimately rendered the domains useless to him for obvious reasons.
After 10 days of no response from the Seller to PayPal in the dispute seen, PayPal escalated it to a claim, finally awarding Shane Bellone the refund that he deserved.
There is no reason to suspect that Shane Bellone’s account was closed on NamePros for violating any rule. He parted NamePros wishing to close his account weeks earlier. He stated that it was the best decision that he’s made as it’s given him much more free time.
Shane Bellone’s Response
When asked about the domain exchange, Shane replied with, “never trust a communist.”
While the seller claims the registrar returned the domains due to his proof, the fact remains that the transfer was authorized by Shane himself.
