Expired domain auction was supposed to end in 3 days, closed yesterday?? What the hell
And we don't even receive notifications when someone bids.
Highly valuable domain too! What a scam.
Thank you for you post and sorry to hear that you were unable to capture the domain via the expired auctions.
As the auction was closed early, it is most likely that the original registrant redeemed the domain before the auction closed and assigned a winner.
The current registrant can reclaim the domain name from redemption up to 42 days after expiration. If the current registrant renews the domain name, we cancel the auction and refund any bids.

Hope this helps!
