    Domain Registration Scam

    Hi,

    There is a company sending emails to the owners of newly registered domains advising them that they need to have the domain registered for search engines otherwise the customers may not find you on the web. There is no need to do this. The search engine spiders will find your site in due course without you paying for it. It says no payment required then asks for card details!

    Transcript of the email I received is below.

    Attention: Important Notice , DOMAIN SERVICE NOTICE
    Domain Name: squirrelwebdesign.net

    ATT: Chris XXXXX
    squirrelwebdesign.net
