Domain Scam #2 —

Written by

How very strange. Here is a little add on to yesterday’s post. This morning, an email arrived:


As you can see, it looks quite official and most of all kind of “scary”. Again, this email – almost a web 2.0 version of the paper scam from Domain Registry Of America I wrote about yesterday – pretends to be a legit notification of domain renewal. Upon closer reading, it is about SE (Search Engine) submission and NOT domain renewal.

First, search engine submission to both Google, Yahoo and Bing is free, it only takes your time – Second, this is so overpriced that the boldness of this scam is scary.

Do not be fooled. You do NOT need to pay this and your domain will not suddenly be difficult for your customers to find.
