These emails are allegedly from 'Domain Services ✔ although the above was from address [email protected] 

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 to carry out and completely pointless in the modern world of SEO and Google rankings.

The email itself is purportedly a reply even though it is not. This is just another tactic to try and associate this company with previous dealings.

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