Watch out for scam emails from ‘UK Domains Trademarks’!
We and many of our clients have recently been plagued with scam emails. ‘UK Domains Trademarks’ are pressuring businesses into buying .net domains. They’re also asking their victums sign up to an expensive subscription programme. Check out this snippet of the example we recieved:
It’s a convincing-looking fraud. It trades on false officiality. It’s similar to this con which did the rounds last year. It’s a ploy which exploits people’s lack of knowledge about internet domains etc. Let’s face it, it’s a murky area which most non-experts don’t know much about!
You do not need to do anything about your .net domain name, or your domain trademarks – we promise! If you recieve any emails from ‘UK Domains Trademarks’ – do not worry about your .net credentials, do not pay them any money, and consider reporting them to Action Fraud.
