Yesterday, I received a "domain expiration notice" from a company called Domain Registry Services, based in Cambridge, UK. This company is not the registrar of my domain name yet they were asking me to send them £60 to renew the domain name. Here is the tone of the letter:
"The domain name shown above is due to expire. Please renew this domain immediately to ensure service continues uninterrupted. If payment is not made to the registry before the expiry date the domain is subject to immediate suspension and deletion without further notice from us."
Wow! Isn't this illegal?
I wrote a similar article about a company called Domain Name Registry of America: Beware! - Scam from 'Domain Name Registry of America' in April of this year. Keep an eye out for these organisations make sure to let your friends and colleagues know about them.
