New spam messages are being sent over the Internet. When you receive one, you think you are about to renew your domain name registration, but you are actually purchasing SEO services, whose usefulness is rather doubtful. How can you protect yourself from such fraud attempts?
Have you also received an e-mail that mentions your domain name, combined with the words “expire” and “cancellation”? The e-mail gives the impression that you need to act fast if you want to renew your domain name, otherwise the registration will expire. The name of your domain is mentioned, as is that of your registrar (Combell or other). Therefore, it looks as if the e-mail was sent by your registrar.
However, the real sender of the e-mail is a company that is trying to deceive unsuspecting readers. Careful readers will indeed notice that the e-mail has nothing to do with a domain registration renewal; it actually is about ordering (bogus) SEO services (“your Domain name search engine registration”). In fact, those who will fall into the trap by printing, filling in and faxing back the form will commit to paying for these services!
You can find examples of these spams/e-mail scams on the Scamadviser and Christmedia websites, or by clicking on the preview below:
If you receive such an e-mail, we advise you to put it in your recycle bin right away! Renewing the registration of your domain is something that you can only do via your own registrar, which will send you a reminded in due time.
