Social.com Domain Name Transfers to Buyer’s Broker

Looks like the payment went through for Social.com.

Social.com, which Ron Jackson says is under contract to sell at $2.6 million, has an updated whois.

As of today, the whois record at Network Solutions says the owner is New Yorker Kevin Bingo. However, the whois record is not complete with an address nor does it have a valid phone number.

Furthermore, it appears this is the buyer’s broker for the domain name, not the buyer.

Kevin Bingo’s twitter account looks like it links to DomainsCable, a domain name broker. [Update: I received a message from Kevin Bingo saying he used to be with DomainsCable but is now independent.]

In a June 6 tweet, Kevin Bingo tweeted a message to Social.com owner Scott Carter:

@scott_carter Can you DM me your email? My client is interested in Social.com but these organizations wouldn’t participate in an auction

This transfer indicates that the payment has been made for the domain name.
