Odds are that ING Direct Canada will soon by called Tangerine.
David and Michael Castello recently sold Tangerine.com for $100,000, as reported on DNJournal this week.
The buyer? ING Direct Canada.
George Kirikos, a Canadian domain name investor, just tweeted out that he believes ING Direct Canada is about to change its name to Tangerine:
Scotiabank announced a deal about a year ago to acquire the company, and time is running out for it to change the bank’s name.
Kirikos also noticed that Tangerine.ca recently changed hands. The new owner – which is surely ING Direct Canada – transferred the domain name to brand protection registrar CSC.
Capital One bought the U.S. version of ING Direct and has since renamed it Capital One 360.
ING Direct has an orange brand, so this rebranding is quite clever.
