Internet scams are nothing new and as we highlighted before they can arrive via email or even in the mailbox. The most recent scam warns of domain name expiration and has fooled a couple of our clients. The email pictured above uses language that scares business owners into thinking they have to pay quickly:
Don’t miss out on this offer which includes search engine submission for YOURDOMAIN.COM for 12 months. There is no obligation to pay for this order unless you complete your payment by Apr 18, 2013. Our services provide submission and search engine ranking for domain owners. This offer for submission services is not required to renew your domain registration.
Failure to complete your search engine registration by Apr 18, 2013 may result in the cancellation of this order (making it difficult for your customers to locate you using search engines on the web).
Always make sure your domain name renewal is coming from the company you registered with. We always recommend our clients to check with us before paying any web related bills.
