Domain Services Emails deceptive emails to domain name administrators with short times lines for business domain name search engine registration (basiically search engine placement) Torrance, California

*Author of original report: Received another notice from Domain Services

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I am listed as the administrative contact for several domain names that I own.  On 01/15/2012, I received an email notice making it look like one of my domain names is expiring and I need to renew my "Domain name search engine registration" by 01/16/2012 for a whooping $75 for one year.  You can submit your domain to most major search engines for why anyone would pay this is beyond me.  The message is a bit deceptive because it makes it look like your domain name registration is about to expire...when it isn't.  They seem to like use various email addresses from hotmail.

Received another notice from Domain Services

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

Received yet another email today (01/17/2012) from this company for a different domain I own.

Here's a copy of the email I've been receiving.  You can submit your domain name(s) to most search engines for free.  You don't need to pay this place a penny to do this.  Yet again, notice the (rushed) time which you need to fax the form by (reply date 01/18/2012) and this has absolutely nothing to do with your domain name's registration.  The disclaimer at the bottom of this "solicitation", is in font size 4 or 6 (very hard to read).
