Scam

Yesterday I got two letters (as in actual snail mail!) from Domain Registry of Canada, an official sounding name and official looking forms telling me that a couple of my domain names are about to expire and offering renewal. Not only that but they even offer alternates (.net and .org instead of .com) like all good domain registrars. The problem? My domains aren’t registered with them! Do they do some kind of “scraping” on whois.net or is there a central place all registrars can access the info? I don’t know but watch for it, in my case anyway they are changing more than I’m paying and charging to them would possibly bring about other charges with my host. Seems the scam is based in Canada and used elsewhere
