    ...watch out for the scammers. I just got this letter below, it's obvious they're sending these out hoping people won't know better or won't bother reading the disclaimer that "This is NOT a bill" and just stick it in the pile of stuff that needs to be paid. And look at what they're charging for domain name renewal! I think the domain that they mention only is about $9 or $10 a year....also it doesn't expire until 2016! :mad:

    Yeah this scam has been going from internet year zero. I had the bogus invoice letters in the UK for domains owned going back to 1999. I have one somewhere that's 16 years-old! The vermin simply collect WHOIS info and send fake invoices out, hoping that 1 in a 1000 is dim-witted enough to pay them.:mad:

    That sucks! Up til I started my affiliate site, I always either had fake whois info or domain privacy enabled on any of my websites so this is the first time I've gotten one of these letters. I thought it was something new. :oops:

    You should never provide fake info. Someone could file an invalid whois report and you could lose the domain as a result. If you want to keep your details private pay for privacy.

    Yeah, I've had loads of these - by e-mail and even through regular post.
    They are very obviously a scam to anyone who has two brain-cells to rub together - but I guess some people don't , otherwise this scam would have died out ages ago :eek2:

    I think the best option is to have "Whois Protection" enabled for all your domains.
