Today we received a statement in the mail from Domain Registry of America. The invoice gives us the impression that a couple of our domain names are up for renewal and are about to expire. The letter actually states that, “Your domain name registrations will expire February 17, 2012, Act today!”
This type of marketing scam is aimed at consumers who do not realize that by returning the invoices along with a payment, their domain names are in fact transferring from their current domain registrar to DROA.
Don’t fall for this. Chances are your domain is fine and already set up for auto-renewal through another reputable domain registrar.
