iDNS Criminal Domain Slamming

iDNS Criminal Domain Slamming

Domain Name Expiration Notice

Jan. 11, 2016

We recently received a notice from an outfit called iDNS - Internet Domain Name Services which encouraged us to renew our domain name….

It certainly appears to be a cleverly worded letter designed for the purpose of criminally tricking you into paying an exorbitant rate for your domain registration renewal – and in the process you will have moved your domain registration to iDNS which will then charge you excessive yearly maintenance fees….

There are also reports that you can – may lose control of your domain registration, an identity theft of sorts which will result in hours upon hours of frustrating time and money lost.

If you try to remedy your mistake, it has been reported that iDNS will not release your domain name – or charge you an exorbitant rate to release it.

In addition, several sites note that “it may be a phishing scam for credit card numbers…”, i.e., for stealing your credit card…

Shred it and pass the word. And encourage your state’s attorney’s office and state legislatures to aggressively pursue these attempts at fraud and criminal enterprise.

Meanwhile, be sure to watch: “Internet Domain Name Services Scam!”
