"Invoices" from Domain Registry, Liberty Names, etc.
Ignore any e-mailed or hard copy "invoices" from Domain Registry of America, Domain Renewal Group, Domain Services or Liberty Names of America asking you to "renew" your domain name registration. This is a ploy to get you to give them money to transfer your domain name to their company and extend the registration period for one year -- at twice the usual price. These folks are now being sued for their deceptive practices.

    What to do?
    Delete or destroy the invoice.

"Invoices" from Search Engine Listing Services
Ignore any invoices for search engine listing services from Internet Corporation Listing Service, Domain Listing Center, ILS, Top Sites, Web Listings Inc or World's Biggest Directory asking you to subscribe to an annual website search engine listing. They're just trying to get you to sign up and waste your money.

    What to do?
    Delete these messages.
