Our clients have reported getting letters via snail mail from a company called Domain Registry of America (DROA) telling them that their domain is due for renewal and to renew their domain by filling out a form and mailing it back to them. This is quite simply a scam to trick the consumer into registering their domain to DROA directory for absolutely no reason.
DROA monitors domains which are coming up for renewal and sends out letters via postal mail to the registrant of the domain. These letters look like domain registration renewals, though their fine print is very careful to state that the fee is to register the domain to a directory.
Consumers who don’t actually read the fine print and return the form to DROA along with their payment for the “renewal” will end up just sending money for a directory that doesn't exist.
Be aware and don''t get caught in this trap. Be sure to call your marketing firm, GoDaddy or any other company that has some association with your website, domain or marketing.
If you have any questions about your domain registrations with, you can always contact our support department for help.
