[LINK] Expiry Date on .com.au Registrations
Mon, 15 Oct 2001 08:44:06 +1000
Regarding complaints about this sort of stuff...I suspect it would probably
be an issue for state consumer affairs bodies.
This scam is the equivalent of faked publishing scams - the invoice arrives
for advertisements never booked in publications never produced. The bet by
the scammer is that there are companies whose invoice control is poor enough
that invoices get paid without proper checking.
A variant on this is "business directories" which send "confirmations of
bookings" - "if you don't reply you will be billed" stuff.
Anyhow - my original point, I'm not sure the two fed agencies are the place,
I strongly suspect first port of call would be the state agencies.

information on a domain name in any correspondence: who it is with, if it
is with another registrar, and the expiry date (that's three bits of
