Scam Alert: Domain Registry of Canada LetterFriday, 02 August 2013 14:02 Written by Vagrant
Another of our clients has been scammed by the infamous letter from the "Domain Registry of Canada" (DROC). Luckily, the domain is "locked for transfer" on our end, meaning it can't be maliciously transferred. However, sadly.. the client is probably out the $45 "transfer fee" scammed out of them.
Don't be fooled, this company and these letters are nothing but a scam. Do not under under any cirumstances reply to or send this company your credit card info.
The letter is designed to look like an invoice, and is very "assumptive" in it's language, leading the domain owner to believe that a) Their domain is registered with Domain Registry of Canada and b) they MUST renew now to avoid losing the domain.
This scam has been going on for over a decade, and chances are if you own a domain name, you will eventually recieve one of these scam letters from DROC.
Why are you receiving this letter?
If you recieve one of these letters, TOSS IT.
