Domain Name Renewal Notice Scams

The only action you should perform regarding your domain with when your receive communication from Point2. 

These e-mails will come from either a Point2 associated e-mail address (e.g. point2agent.com / point2.com) or our domain reseller Wild West Domains (secureserver.net). Any other e-mails may look convincing or official and often contain information specific to your domain registration that most people believe is retained only by the company which you registered your domain through, however, domain registration information including expiration dates, registration e-mails and other contact information is often stored in public records and can easily be looked up using a service called "WHOIS".

As such, if you will ever receive communication with regards to your Point2 purchased domain, you should always cross check the information presented with your Point2 domains account. Typically, these companies will charge more than you originally paid for your domain purchase, sometimes in excess of $50.00.

Some notices may actually be mailed to customers, others come through in the form of e-mails and may look something like this:
