Domain Service Notification Scam

Last Update: June 07, 2015

Just to warn the unwary. I got this notice giving me the impression that my Domain Name was about to expire needing urgent renewal. The notice was asking horrific amounts from $75/yer to a lifetime of $499!

I checked with Go Daddy and it still has a year to go. Did a Google and came up with scam info at the following link.

The greed and dishonesty in today's world seems boundless!

Thanks for the warning Shawn. I get so many of those that I forget what it's like to receive the first one. ~Marion

A similar scam is one that comes through regular mail from Domain Registrars of America (or some similar name). Their letter is deliberately (and carefully) designed to LOOK LIKE a bill without actually being one.

You did right to google first. So sad unscrupulous types are real threats. Victims are real people too unfortunately.

I pray some check can be done to address this situation. Thank you for the heads up Shawn, God bless....
