We’re seeing a lot of domain renewal scams at the moment and advise you to take care when acting upon emails and letters suggesting that your domain name needs renewing. There seems to be 3 different types of scams.
1) Attempts to trick you into moving your domain name to another organisation,
2) Attempts to sell you unnecessary services such as directory listing or search engine optimisation, or
3) Attempts to sell you other domain names similar to your existing domain name.
There is even the possibility that some of these scams are really just “phishing” for your credit card or bank details.
If you are unsure about the validity of a renewal letter or email, note that all our domain renewals notifications come from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and that all renewals are processed via the web addresses http://webnecessities.partnerconsole.net/ or http://www.webnecessities.com.au/shop/customer.php . Also we do not send reminders by post. If the renewal doesn’t match these attributes, then there is a good chance that it is fake.
