These guys have been sending out postal notifications for years and the number of people that have asked me if this is legitimate or if they need to pay this “bill” is probably topping 100. Well I guess those stamps cost to much or they are concerned with Mail Fraud as they now appear to be sending them via email.

Basically this boils down to some outfit using a third party mailbox store in N.Y. is charging nearly 10X the going rate for Domain Renewals for which they say they will also submit your website to the various search engines. The “SCAM” is this clearly looks like a bill and unless you read the fine print your likely to think it is a bill.

By accepting this offer, you agree not to hold DN liable for any part. Note that THIS IS NOT A BILL. This is a solicitation. You are under no obligation to pay the amounts stated unless you accept this offer. The information in this letter contains confidential and/or legally privileged information from the notification processing department of the DN. This information is intended only for the use of the individual(s) named above. There is no pre-existing relationship between DN and the domain mentioned above. This notice is not in any part associated with a continuation of services for domain registration. Search engine submission is an optional service that you can use as a part of your website optimization and alone may not increase the traffic to your site.

Please note the “This is not a bill”, “this is a solicitation” and “your under no obligation to pay” which was taken from the very small print at the bottom of the “Notice”. Folks don’t be fooled with this junk mail if it shows up either in your postal mailbox or your email.

To have a little fun and thanks to Google we can see that 47-47 36th Street, Long Island City, NY is the office of MyUSABox, a questionable re-mailing service. With further thanks to Google here’s the offices of “Domain Services”, NOT! Of course the return email address on this email was an anonymous Hotmail account as well as the unsubscribe email listed. The fax number as well is likely just a service but gives us a great way to see what others are saying about this SCAM, 646-385-7542. It is also likely that the return mail is being forwarded to Canada or other country then being re-mailed again as at one time they operated from Thornhill, ON address which is a UPS store.
