Domain Name Scam Letters

Getting emails or letters that look like invoices for re-registering your domain name/s is nothing new.

Dodgy companies have tried it on for years with inflated prices...we get them here too.

But there's a new batch of complete scam letters being received for renewing a domain name you don't even own.

The letters look official so it's easy to see how people get confused and pay them.

The ACCC says the letters may be from “Domain Name Corp Pty Ltd”.

But if you're not sure if a renewal letter is legitimate, call your domain name host (which may also be your webhost if you have a domain/hosting package).

Do not ring the number on the letter as it's the scammers!
