DNS Services Scam VS. Savvy Clients

They’ve hit again!

A new stream of mailers posing as invoices recently flooded the mailboxes of some of our clients. The responsible company, DNS Services, goes on a rampage every couple of months, trying to trick people into forking over control of their domain names and DNS. It’s not until you read the fine print that there is any indication it’s a solicitation, not a debt.

Although not illegal, this kind of advertising is based on trickery and is a good reminder for all of us to stay savvy and secure. Contact trusted providers before you buy off on the next big scam. We’re happy to guide you in the right direction.

  1. We got them, too! I blogged about it over here: http://www.quantuscreative.com/quantus-creative-blog/a-warning-from-our-team

    It’s amazing that there are businesses using this criminal tactic to get money from people. So scary. Thank you for sharing, too. Hopefully people will be aware and avoid it.

  2. I received an invoice from DNS too. When you call them to complain, they make you wait forever hoping you’ll hang up… i did. How can this be legal?

    It’s hard to believe that anyone actually falls for this crap, but if it didn’t work, they would waste their time.

  3. THANK YOU! that mailer came to me today and I just knew it had to be a scam!! and then I found this and reread the entire flier and found that it was a scam! thank you!! more people need to know this!
    peace
    oh, and if like 1000 people fall for this then they have $65,000 mega profit…for zero work…
