Latest Domain Name Scams
Several recent domain name scams have been brought to our attention.

1. Low Ball Pricing to transfer your names from your existing registrar.
If you receive a solicitation from a registrar or reseller for very low prices please make sure to READ THE FINE PRINT! What you'll find are schemes that lock you into higher prices if you attempt to transfer, renew or change the domain information in anyway. Sometimes they'll offer free email and web-hosting complete with lots of annoying pop-up advertising that they don't tell you about. You might think you're saving money until you experience poor service, costly hidden fees and unwanted advertising. Be sure to make informed decisions for security, quality and support before transferring your names.

2. Deceptive Renewal Notices
Emails or US postal mailers are being used to mislead domain name holders about the expiration of their domain names. They are usually in the form of a warning about your domain names expiring. They may even look like a bill. Typically, your domain names and expiration dates are included in the message.

The scam messages appear to be generated from large competitive registrars such as VeriSign (Network Solutions) and Register.com or their resellers. If you receive any notices (either email or postal) from ANY other registrar or reseller, please bring them to our attention.

If you receive email or US Postal mail concerning the renewal of your names that you are unsure about, please contact boergoats.com immediately. To avoid being deceived by any renewal scam, we use an auto-renew feature.

One of the smaller registrars (BoerGoats will be used as a substitute registrar name) complained that Registrar.com sent the following email to deceive its customers:
