Flippa Scam- “My Flippa account got banned” Why?

Flippa is marketplace where you can buy and sell domain names. However, from past few months, they made it difficult for everyone to buy and sell domain names. I am sharing many people personal experience with Flippa. Why it is showing- “Your Flippa account got banned”, “Your Flippa Account has been suspended”. There are many such unanswered questions over the Internet

I was SuperSeller at Flippa with 31 transactions, valued at $3.9K. My six listings were on auction at $1 and one listing already met the reserve and was about to end. When I woke up in morning- I got this message from Flippa- “Your Flippa Account banned”. It was nightmare for me.

The message came from Mr Josh (Editor lead on Flippa), Your account has been banned for shill bidding. Moreover, you made some fake sales at flippa. You belong to Indian Gang, who is using Fiverr to get Bids and also mentioned the names of some accounts.

I was surprised to see such email from Flippa as I did not know any of user accounts with which they linked my name, I donot have my account on Fiverr, My auctions usually sell for less than 10 USD for zero reserve, how I be part of shill bidding on Flippa.

I immediately replied this message to Josh( Editor team head) and other senior authorities, I was so frustrated that I wrote an rough email with many mistakes( it was emotional email actually) –


Flippa, this is wrong that you banned my account by stating that my sales are fake, I have seen involved in shill bidding. I do not have any account at Fiverr, you can check my email address- xxxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com in database of fiverr. It sold my listings for $1 on flippa. I am open to show you my Paypal account statements of all sales.

It was a technical error, I believe from your side. It takes me more than 8 months to reach at 31 transactions. It is my hard work of last 8 months.

It is my challenge that please prove that I have been involved in shill bidding. The users with which you linked me “XXXXX”, “XXXXX” and “XXXXXX”, I do not know any of them. I am ready to give my gmail access to you, you can check same from my gmail account. I never expect these fake emails from Flippa. 

I have payment invoices of each sale. Not made a single fake sale on flippa. I can show you all if you want. I am ready to share my phonebook with you.

I am disappointed against flippa for fake emails.

Who is the supreme authority on flippa to talk with (please do not take it personally). Please provide me with platform where I can prove that whatever you are saying is all shit.

This is not a joke to banned anyone account by saying that your sales are fake, you are threat to our marketplace, you are involved in shill bidding, you are running multiple accounts.

I earlier had word with Sid Galada( senior person of Flippa Team) and asked him to take action against shill accounts. I want you to please prove that I have been involved in shill bidding or bring my case to flippa supreme authorities. You can also send vigilance against my account and verify each bids on all the sales.I have invoices and payment of all sales ranging from $1 to $1.1k

Please prove that I have been involved in shill bidding. I also want to talk with you over the phone. Please connect here- 91XXXXXXXXXX

What info you need from my end so that I can prove my point that I never been involved in this. I am ready to co-operate with you.

One more thing, i am ready to sign agreement or contract with Flippa, If you prove that I know any of them- XXXXX, XXXXX and XXXXX and had word with them in past regarding Bidding then I am ready to give you compensation and In case I prove that I do not know them then Flippa have to give me compensation for wasting my time and money over your upgrades and listings.

What you say?, Agree?

This allegation is personally hurting me. I have been working on Flippa from last 8 months and the first one raising the issue of shill bidding with Sid Galada.

Please investigate further; it might be an error from your end. I am genuine seller

This is email message I sent in frustration to Flippa team because I know I have done nothing wrong.  Later, I came to know that many other accounts were banned by Flippa stating the same reason of shill bidding, your card details are not matching with your name, multiple account operations, Your account is threat for flippa.

1 friend of mine called me 2 days later of this email and said that Flippa Banned his account, Although, He was not using Flippa from Last 6 months( not even Logged in), it was not even have any bidding history.

I was surprised to see, that guy who have not logged in on Flippa from last 6 months and never listed a single auction was banned by Flippa saying that “You have been involved in shill Bidding”.

It is message for everyone who is using Flippa, take care of your account( you never know when Flippa will banned your account by saying that you have been involved in shill bidding). Do not put all your eggs in single basket and donot spend much money on flippa upgrades.

I made a mistake by trusting Flippa. This is article for everyone who is using Flippa.

I hope this article will help everyone and create awareness among the community.
