I just received a fax also today. Says the same thing all of you are reporting. The interesting thing is I also have my domain name through Network Solutions. Don't think there is any truth to this letter at all and I am sending a copy to the FTC. Maybe someone there will take care of this scam.
Just received this fax today. We are a .com but this is threatening about a .us. The concerning part, though, is that when I go to the website listed, it links to Network Solutions. Our website is hosted through Network Solutions so it makes me think that these companies are related, and therefore, that this fax may have some truth to it. Anyone else experience this?
I rec'd this fax today. I noticed that they had my domain name with a .us listed. We're a .com. Figured it was a hoax even before checking the 800notes site for confirmation. It's bad enough to get telemarketers calling my home, mobile, and business phones. But now my fax? Hmmmm....there's a fax # listed on this so-called final notice form. Wouldn't it be fun to send a few pages back to them loaded with thick black scribble lines?
got fax made call with number on fax seconds later got hung up on. we have got to get these guys some how.
This guy is a real DIRT BAG! how does he sleep at night! he tried telling me that I paid with a credit card 5 years ago and he even made up the last 4 numbers on the card that I paid with...what a low life!
I received this same fax message today. When I spoke with the rep and explained that my domain automatically renewed he hung up on me. I called back and it went to voicemail. It's probably one person. I hate these do***e bags.
Received a bogus fax as "Final Notice" for domain registration. Don't fall for it. I knew it was a scam when I received it, as I keep the records and knew our domain had been renewed. What a bunch of jerks!!!
I just received a same fax number 877-237-9179 at 7:30 am today (3/2/13) asked me to call 1-800-936-8089 because dead line is same day 3/2/13. scared me a lots!!! How can i do !!! ?
I got the fax demanding I call 1-800-936-8089. Total scam. Don't waste your time.
Yep, this number appeared on the bottom of a bogus fax I received from "US Name Registrar" saying it was my FINAL NOTICE before they assign my domain to someone else.
We received this fax yesterday. I'm so glad that I researched this and discovered this site. The letter seems so threatening, with a strong sense or urgency. I will report this to FTC.gov.
I received the same fax and called the number 1-800-936-8089 the agent wanted my credit card number to renew my domain name for 5 years for $350.00 and $450.00 for 10 years. My domain name is registered with Alentus and does not expire until 2015. The agent name is Daniel Fuller and insisted that I had to do this with a credit card and not a check. I ask if I could pay online and he informed that since it was the Final Notice it had to be paid with a credit card over the phone..
I immediately called Alentus and was informed that this is SCAM. I called back to US Named Registar and spoke to Mr Fuller and inquire why was he trying to scam me and hung up the phone.
The fax number is 1.877.237.9179
If anybody receives this fax or email reported to the FTC.gov.
I just got one today. Sounds like B.S.
Seems to be origin of domain scam. They wanted $350 for extension of domain name. When I pressed as to who they were, they hung up.
Yup, we received a fax, too, threatening loss of our domain name. Although it's a substantial "cut" above the usual scam productions it is quite intimidating. I'm grateful to this site helping to avoid these thieves.
I just received the same fax to my efax account. Looks pretty "pro" but it is only a sales call/fax. You can safely discard the notice.
A client of mine received an official-looking fax from someone calling themselves US Name Registrar. The fax says that my client hasn't registered the domain somename.us (he's only registered somename.com, from another registrant). With a bunch of legalese and intimidatind headlines like INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY NOTIFICATION, they seem to be saying that no one has registered somename.us yet and that my client might do it right away; otherwise someone else could do it. They also add some intimidating-sounding language about other people with a company named "somename" might argue that the domain is theirs, not my client's. This sounds bogus to me.
