Domain SEO Service Scam

Domain SEO Service Scam

Domain seo service registration corp if you receive one of these via email don’t panic it isnt anything to do with your domain renewal.

These emails have been going around for a while now and we have had quite a few as we hold contact details for a lot of our clients domains.

They do look very official and to be fair do mention that the “request” isn’t for domain renewal but in our opinion the email does try to give the impression of a domain expiration notice, and the less informed amongst us may well be panicked into paying the requested amount on that basis.

Here’s how it works:

The “company” searches domain names (most owner contact information is public)
The “company” then e-mails the domain name owner with an official looking Payment Notice
The “company” places deadlines for payment

In our opinion the intention is to make you think you are renewing your domain name by using technical jargon and terminology you may not be used to.

In this particular case you would be signing up for a years SEO optimisation (you have to ask yourself just what sort of SEO optimisation can possibly be done for $64) but some people would not understand that and that’s exactly what they are hoping for.

In this particular case we’re not really sure what it is the Domain SEO Service Registration Corp are trying to get us/you to renew – we certainly have never used their services before so how can a renewal be due?

If you are ever in doubt feel free to give us a call we are always happy to help.
