Original CamRoulette.com Owner Tells His Story of Ups, Downs, and Up
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011
Guy who originally registered CamRoulette.com tells his whole story.
Craig Snyder (no affiliation with Oversee.net Craig Snyder) went through the ringer last year.
He registered the domain name CamRoulette.com, which is similar to the (then) popular ChatRoulette.com.
He sold it to Adam Strong for $1,200, only to see Strong flip the domain for $151,000.
Snyder certainly had domain sales regret.
But then it got worse. Someone else claimed to have agreed to buy the domain from Snyder for $700 and was mad to see the domain name flipped for so much. That person also confused Snyder with another Craig Snyder who appeared to have some money in the bank. So he sued Snyder.
Snyder describes himself as a small town guy. He’s never even flown on a plane. He has very little money.
As he describes in a detailed post today about the entire situation, he was truly overwhelmed.
The first two lawyers he talked to weren’t very helpful. (In his mind they weren’t very accurate, either).
And then he found someone who he says he nearly has a man-crush on. That person helped him get from the idea of filing for bankruptcy to a tenable settlement.
It’s a long post, but very much worth the read. If there’s one thing about this guy, he tends to write down his feelings and then delete them later. So I recommend reading the post now…just in case he changes his mind.
