>Hello,
>
>just wondered if someone could offer some help here.  Someone at our 
>University here in Australia is negotiating the purchase of a registered 
>.com domain name  through another party (an individual), who is claiming 
>title to the domain name.  The only contact they have at the moment is an 
>email address.  This individual wants the purchase to be done through 
>escrow.com, based purely on email address exchange.
>
>Although this all may be legitimate, we are not sure of the process to 
>validate this and therefore are treating it with some caution.  Right at 
>the moment we only have an email address for the seller, nothing else.
>
>The main problem is validating the process.
>
>I am attempting to:
>
>1) validate the authenticity of the claimed owner and;
>2) validate the process for transfer of title through escrow.com
>
>Can anyone give me some tips or ideas on how this could be achieved?
>
>Thanks a lot,
>
