Subject: 007names pulls a fast one

Message:
 

 
007names queue was due to be closing tomorrow the 3rd March. But at the last minute they changed their closing time to the 2nd March.

Of course I was waiting till today / tomorrow to place my bids, as would have been most other bidders, and now have completely missed out on making any applications with them.

I phoned them and they said all bidders received an email notification a couple of days ago, but I would guess this is a lie as I paid the $80 to be eligible to bid and had in fact bid on one name and still received no notification.

Did anyone else bid with 007names and get any notification? My guess is there was an insider who wanted to make sure they didn't get outbid and the queue was closed early for this reason.

I also emailed them twice last week asking for clarification of the exact time on the 3rd on which the bids would close and of course received no reply, presumably they were planning this scheme all along.
