.BIZ Domain Renewal Scam
It has come to our attention that a company doing business variously
as Domain Renewal or Domain Renewals (www.domain-renewal.biz,
www.domainrenewals.biz) has been sending out unauthorized and
unsolicited correspondence regarding renewal of .BIZ domain names.
These notices have not only been regarding names that are not due for
renewal for at least a year, but also have been delivered to
registrants of .BIZ domain names that are listed in the Registry's
Whois database. The notices being sent out read as follows:
Your domain [DOMAINNAME] is due for renewal shortly. Please see
our web site to renew your domain name:
IMPORTANT: FAILURE TO RENEW YOUR DOMAIN BEFORE ITS EXPIRY DATE
WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF SERVICE.
2 Years - $35/year
3-5 Years - $25/year
6-10 Years - $20/Year
All prices are US Dollars.
Should you have any questions on renewing your domain please
contact renewal, firstname.lastname@example.org .
BIZ Domain Renewals
Please do not respond to such notices.
They are not sent by us and responding to the notice will not cause
your .BIZ domain to be renewed. Instead, you will merely be providing
your credit card information to an organization who may be running a
credit card scam.
We believe that these notices involve questionable trade practices.
Therefore, we feel obligated to bring these notices to your attention.
