Warning - The UK Internet Register Scam

1 May 2007 - 4:04pm -- Room 108

If you should receive any postal forms, faxes or emails regarding the registration of your domain be careful about automatically replying.

We are aware of a selection of letters, forms and faxes that are sent to domain owners informing that their domain is up for renewal or that their registration details are incorrect. Most are worded to seem like an automatic renewal or update, when in fact are usually order forms for renewal or for advertising at a high cost.

We advise that you ignore these forms if they do not initiate from your domain registrar. If you are at all worried about missing your renewal or of incorrect details being held regarding your domain name, please contact Room 108 or your domain registrar to discuss.
