Domain Support Group Scam

November 13th, 2002 • 1 min read

I got a fax today from the "Domain Support Group" filled with legal mumbo-jumbo about losing my domain name.

I happen to have an outstanding issue with Verisign (I registered a while back before they installed their fancy new administration program, so I'm having a lot of trouble changing the mailing address associated with my domain), so I thought this might be related.

I called the number and was put on hold for a bit. I did a quick search on "Domain Support Group" and found their website seemed a little off.

Then I found a link to a description of the scam...

I promptly hung up the phone before they picked up.
