Alert re Database / Advertisement Registration letters

Postby daveg » Mon Sep 17, 2007 9:03 pm

Hello,

It has come to our attention that a company operating under the name “Internet Register Ireland” is in the process of contacting businesses with registered .ie domain names by post and by fax, soliciting them to register their domain name with the “Internet Register Ireland”. The “Internet Register Ireland”, a German based company will request you to fill out their form and return it to them signed. It should be noted that they charge an excessive fee of approximately €958 for the registration of the .ie domain name in their database.

We would like to reassure all of our customers that no such organisation has been authorised to act on behalf of the IEDR or Web World Ireland. If you are contacted in this manner we would recommend that you disregard this letter.

Hello,

It looks like these guys are at it again. I've attached another example letter that they are posting to companies and individuals all over Ireland.

Example : Page 1 & Page 2

I understand that they are now sending collection agencies after people who sign and return these letters looking for €958. Please be warned if you get this letter that you should throw it in the bin.
Thanks
