Domain Renewal Group Scam?

Just had a nicely worded letter from a company called “Domain Renewal Group” noting that my domain name is about to expire (it is) and that I can “take advantage” of best savings by switching to them.

So not really a scam – if you read the text properly they leave an ample trail that I’ll actually be switching domain registrars if I use them. On the assumption that they’d continue to manage the domain – and the web stories on this are unclear so perhaps they will, perhaps they won’t – then the only question is whether this is cost effective. It isn’t – there’re more than twice the price that I pay currently.

Beware … always read the fine print. Domain Renewal Group may not be all they appear to be. And they certainly charge more than you need to pay.

  1. also received letter from Domain Renewal Group.  I'd like to say that I recognized that this was a scam right away, but I didn't.  It sat on my desk for several days, and I was a little suspicious.   I hope that I helped someone not get hooked.  Pitch it in the trash!
