My wife got taken by these sleazebags. They lookup publicly available domain owner records for owners of domains that are due to expire.

They then send phony "renewal" looking letters just before the expiration date and play the odds that most people will fill them out and pay them without realizing that they are paying more than the original registrar would have paid and you are transferring custody of the domain to them. When my wife called she spoke to a nasty piece of work woman called Rena (or Penal couldn't quite make it out)

Anyway we are reporting them to the Buffalo better business bureau and the Feds - Given than they sent the letter across state borders there could be a case for Federal Wire Fraud.

CAUTION: READ THE REALLY SMALL PRINT ON THE BACK OF THE FORMS!!

#1 Consumer Comment

Its not just the States and Australia that this comany is targeting.

AUTHOR: Sonic7600 - (United Kingdom)

Hi,

I would just like to add my comment, "Domain Registry of America" is also targeting UK domain holders as well.

A note to all domain holders where ever you are, DO NOT respond to the mail you have received from this company, instead contact your ISP and they will either be able to renew your domain for you or put you in contact with the domain registrar where your domain is actually registered.

"Domain Registry of America" will take your money and may not do anything about registering your domain and could leave you without a domain when it actually expires. This company preys on individuals who are afriad of losing their domains as it may be their bread and butter (the means in which they generate money).

I hope I have shed some light of this international scam that is be committed by "Domain Registry of America".

Regards,

Australia is being Bombarded by them as well

AUTHOR: Wally - (Australia)

Noah, just so you are aware these idiots are pelting me with exhorbantly high renewals as well. I have over 250 domains so you can imagine how much they are wasting on postage. I immediately file them where they belong in the 'round filing cabinet' (the wastepaper bin).
They are not just crossing US State borders they are scamming Internationally as well.
They keep sending them and I keep filing them!!
Kind regards to all from our little patch of Paradise - The Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia - the home of the Crocodile Hunter.
