I know the person who sold this domain name really well, his name is Barry Garner and he runs a company over in the UK called GARNER MEDIA LTD. He’s sold over $480,000 (£300k) worth of names in the last 35 days e.g. Models.co.uk, vouchercode.com, iva.info, and now Discountvouchers.com for $160k, very impressive sales. That guy should become a broker as he knows his stuff and seems to be on fire at the minute.

I also know Barry Garner really well. The reason for these sales is allegedly due to the success of the hit UK ITV2 program “The Only Way Is Essex” in which its rumored the main character Mark is based on Barry Garners real life (The cars the money the women etc). Because of this Barry is believed to be opening a unique national spray tan salon company and hopefully the recent sales will allow him to add vagazzling & teeth whitening to the portfolio of services on offer by his chain.
