They just got me on July 4th.... 15.00 ... called my credit card company...
CC operator was conversing with someone from 360 253 2210 ....
The CC operatior was told that they would look into this ..... ROFLMAO ....
I will tell the CC operator never to allow that charge to go through again.....
I will also check to see if that charge happen in the past....
cancel your bank card get a new number and have your bank block them. that is what i did.
I took out a domain from this company, maybe 2 years ago now. I eventually forgot the domain name, I tried to have this charge stopped but they insisted that I provide them with more information. Two years later $9.95 x 2 every month coming out of my account!! I'm in Ireland and I don't even how how to deal with this. Any suggestions guys?
I recently found a charge pending on my bank account for $67 and the bank gave me the number so I called it. A reputable company will not have "press 1 for customer service" and "press 2 for sales" as soon as the call is answered. But they may not be reputable even if they do, but it should be a red flag when they don't.
When this shady character answered he asked me if I purchased a domain name and i was like NOOOOOO. He then wanted my debit card number in order to find out about the charge. I told the guy he was nuts and I asked him why would I give him my debit card number when he should have it to begin with.
As I was on the phone with these shady goofballs I was driving to my bank so I cancelled my debit card. The charge did not go through so I was lucky.
People now-a-days are low life scum bags who obviously don't believe in God or what will happen to them when they die. They think they're getting away with stealing money...which they might, here on earth but after you die eternity is an awful long time to pay for what you've done in this life if you haven't repented & forsaken your sins. It's all good.
please call 360-253-2210
I am going through the same s***!!!!! They are helping themselve's to my Bank Account, There is a site call rippoffreport.com If you have a good case an attorney will call you,
Today -14 May 2010 I was charged $5.43 from that same number, I will be calling my bank in the morning.
Huh...I did finally get through, and, as it turns out, Dotster IS the parent company of mydomain.com, with whom I do have domains registered.
Wow...the bank looked, and it goes even further back.
Apparently I need to pay better attention. They've been charging me $9.95 every two months for at least 6 months now.
I see two transactions in my online banking records, one in Feb and one in Apr. 2010.
I wonder if there were previous transactions I missed.
I just noticed the Apr transaction and started to look into this.
Calling my bank to report abuse/fraud, now.
They billed me over $30.00 on January 29th, 2010. I am filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau's online complaint system.
I finally got through after about a 15 hold time. The 360-253-2210 number does belong to DOTSTER.
They had auto renewed a service I don't even use, then claimed my credit card isn't in their system! At least they promised to reverse the charge though, we'll see...
Saw an unauthorized charge for $9.95 on my credit card statement JUST 1 DAY BEFORE a real and authorized charge I made to Dotster.com.
I think what these scammers are doing is that they search for expiring domains (like 1 day left for expiration) and they somehow submit a charge to your credit card (I think they somehow obtained the credit card infos of Dotster customers) for that expiring domain -- hoping that you will actually renew your domain in the last minute and will not notice the extra charge created by these guys. It worked in my case...I almost didn't notice the discrepancy.
This is for your website and email address.
I un-authorized this charge for $11.88 (after calling:360-253-2210 and could NOT get thru). Now we dont have email or website address. Still trying to correct this-we have been on hold for over one hour!
This is a real company. We are called Dotster. Some people do use other peoples credit cards to renew their domain. To get that tracked down and fixed call 360-449-5988 if you are having issues with the 2210 number. It sometimes will get you through faster. Sorry for the hassles you guys have had.
I never received a call, but I logged into my online banking and had a charge of $19.90 for a domain name. 360-253-2210 was listed as the number on the account charge, so I called it. There was no company name given, and the automated prompts basically sent me in a circle. I googled the number, found this page, and the webiste 000domain.com also came up.
Same thing happened to me. Was notified by email that I needed to pay $$ to keep my website open. I tried the link, couldn't change my password, so I called them. They walked me through the change, and then directed me to another website to log in. (lots of misdirection on their links). Got suspicious right after and made some calls to close, to block, to investigate.
Me too, just this past Thursday. At least it was only $15. This is really disgusting. Going to the BBB now.
Did not purchase domain
Same thing happened to me, a charge for $35.98 JUL-09-09

On the internet the following companies use the same phone number
000domain.com and dotster.com
Same thing just happened to me, same# same name...July 2009
Same thing here. I call them to find out why they are billing me $19.99, I leave a message, and no call back. I'm calling my bank to block this ? company from using my debit card again.
Same thing happened to me.. pretty bold to put their number out there when they rip you off... bold or stupid.
Unauthorized credit card charge for over $500 showed this phone number as possible web domain purchase. When I tried to call the number, no company name is given. When you press the option button to report credit fraud, it kicks you back to the main automated menu. Pressing button to speak to representative, a man answered. When I asked him the name of the company, he said 'your line is breaking up' then he hung up on me. I have not been able to get thru the line since. Reported.
