Domain Registry of America, - Fraud

  thegreypanther 12:20 07 Jun 2007

I have just received a letter from the "Domain Registry of America" (56 Gloucester Road, Suite 526, London SW7 4UB) requesting renewal payment for a domain name that I own.
I have received letters from these people (or this person) in the past, and as far as I am aware this is nothing but a full blown fraud.
The letter appears quite convincing, and has arrived at about the time that the domain name is genuinely due for renewal.
What I would like to know is whether there is any person or body to whom this letter should be reported, and does anybody care in the first place?
I will place this message in both the Web design forum and the Consumer Forum.

A contributor on the Consumerwatch Forum has found out that 56 Gloucester Road is home to a number of businesses, and the Domain Registry of America would appear to be a mailbox.
There is obviously no connection with the American Embassy.

on the same subject, it creates confusion as people post similar responses in both threads. We'll go with the one in Consumerwatch and close this one now.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
