Domain name scam sending letters in the mail prompting renewal


Do not respond to this letter. They are hoping that you voluntarily send money to their company, using their own “official enough” looking website, under the pretense that your domain name will expire. It will expire, but your domain name should be on auto-renew with the host you originally set up the domain with.

Fake domain name expiration notice

Thank you to my anonymous customer who let me post his photo. I’m happy that he reached out to me for verification before handing this company 265 dollars for no reason.

Your domain name should be on auto-renew. If you secured the domain name yourself, you should identify that this is not your domain name host. If you have hired someone to manage your website, they should have the renewal process covered.
