Domain Registration Scams are paying rent by tricking you.
Know your domain registrar!
Part of learning the truth about the total costs of setting up your website online is knowing who you renew your domain name with. You should also know that prices are your first clue to scams and renewal dates need to be in mind.
The Old Ivan Scam as we call it hit our inbox today.
Email From: Attn Expiration Information for Domain Registration
In bold print in the body of the email "Domain Expiration Notice".
Everything in the email looks like a typical invoice and if you don't know any better you might click on the "Secured Payment" link and pay up the $75.00 they are asking you for.
Then the email goes on and clearly states that "DRS is a search engine ranking and submission service provider."
So my domain name isn't the issue here and it's not expiring like they claimed but they want me to spend $75.00 to be included in Google and other search engines?
Interesting offer but still a Trick which we classify as a scam.

By the way, the email HTML did have code so Ivan can see who read or opened the email. ?r=/email/domain_reg_2010-10-01
Will the UnSubscribe work? Who knows.
If you visit the renewalregistra . com site it should redirect you to a merchant service iGlobal which explains everything clearly.
