Syncronicity would like to make all customers aware of the
ever-increasing rise in domain name hijacking in recent months.
Our customers have been receiving email or postal notices that
their domain names are near expiration with "instructions" on how
to renew. These mailing are from companies that
DO NOT manage your domain
name record. The notice appears to be a simple renewal form and
looks very legitimate, but in reality it is an authorization to
move your domain name registration away from us to a new registrar
(ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT).
Beware of any notice you receive from: Network Solutions -
Verisign - Registrars.com
Domain Registry of America (DROA) - eNom
Don't fall victim to this scam! If you sign and return the notice,
YOU WILL be leaving our registration service and most likely pay
MORE for your domain name registration.
If you registered your domain name through Syncronicity, please
note the following:
1. WE DO NOT SEND RENEWAL NOTICES THROUGH THE MAIL. Notices
are only sent by email to the billing contact address on your
domain name registration. If you receive a renewal notice in the
mail, it's not from us and it is an attempt to "hi-jack" your
domain name. Our email notices will reflect information from
you sign and mail back a renewal notice you received in the mail,
YOU RISK paying a higher renewal fee possibly even losing your
domain name. Think about it ... a company that will try to deceive
you to obtain your business may also change your domain name
record away from your control. Would you really want to do
business with a company that uses deceptive practices?
If you are not sure about a domain name renewal notice that you
have received, please contact immediately at 303-256-4657 before
taking any action. We will be happy to answer any questions and
help you avoid becoming another victim of scam.
"If you like our service, tell someone...If not, tell us!"
