This scam is very simple and very effective. Domain Registry of America (which is actually based in Canada) sends out millions of these domain expiration notices. You should understand that, if you receive one, your domain isn't registered with them. They are trying to trick you into transferring your domain to them and paying more for the annual registration than you are likely payingnow. Beginning in early 2000, their business model consisted of sending out notices that looked like a bill. You had to read the fine print on the backof the mailing to confirm that that they were not actually your domain registrar, and that by paying the "bill" you were authorizing them to transfer your domain away from your actual registrar. The charges from Domain Registry of America are usually much higher than the cost of what you were paying to begin with.

In December 2003 the Federal Trade Commission required Domain Registry of America to provide refunds to tens of thousands of consumers and alter their advertising.

It is also worth noting that they employ some particularly despicable individuals, such as Eric Voisard, and that you will most likely be further insulted if and when you contact them regarding their 'services'.
