SPAM: yourdomain.com Final Extension

 

Another domain renewal scam is circulating this week.

The format is the same as usual - danger, danger danger, about to expire, your domain, final warning etc.

Then right at the bottom it says something like:

Failure to make payment may result in account closing (making it difficult for your customers and your friends to locate you, using search engines on the web).

So it is actually a service to submit you to search engines.

 

Well there is only really one search engine unfortunately, although Ecosia's plan is a good one, so there is no need to pay someone to submit your pages. Google are quite capable of finding you themselves.

 

The email arrives as:

These emails are allegedly from 'Domain Services ✔ although the above was from address plus@lumeaafacerilorinformationale.com 

As you can see from the below, there is a general air of a renewal email and when you click the link in the email above and arrive at the site below, there is no mention of what you are actually buying, again allowing you to think that you are renewing your domain. The word 'registration' is used to mean a submission to a search engine. This is of course something that is automated for domainregorders.com to carry out and completely pointless inthe modern world of SEO and Google rankings.

The email itslef is puportedly a reply even though it is not. This is just another tactic to try and associate this company with previous delaings.

Our advice is to blacklist this email and report it as spam.
