Domain Name Group Fraud

Scams, fraud and ponzi schemes come in all shapes and forms which can be delivered via many ways including email or (postal service) mail.

A scam that has been going on for quite a few years consists of a company writing out a piece of paper that looks like an invoice, to the unsuspecting victim, that leads them to believe that their domain name is up for registration. 

The unsuspecting customer’s real domain name may contain .com.au, whereas the fraudulent invoice is for .net.au. 

This invoice contains an account number that the unsuspecting victim has allegedly opened with that company in order to pay for the domain name that they (allegedly) have purchased which the customer may associate as being up for renewal.

The actions of that company are purely fraudulent, and illegal as they are obtaining financial gain by deception.



In this instance the company committing fraud is:

Domain Name Group Pty Ltd (ACN: 135 462 305)
Level 1, 530 Little Collins St.
Melbourne VIC 3000
Phone: 1300 255 144
Fax: 03 9011 6104

Another company involved in fraud where the so called 'authorities' are slow to act in the interest of the consumer.
