June 14th, 2010, 09:16 AM #1Domain Registry of America (DROA) Still Scamming
I guess everyone is getting letters from Domain Registry of America that look like invoices trying to slick you into renewing domains with them. They have been doing that since at least 2003 according to this from the FTC.
Well now I'm seeing a new twist. They sent me an email saying that my transfer from Godaddy can't be completed until I change my status on the name from "locked" to "active".
The FTC reference said that DROA is an eNom reseller. If that's true how can eNom continue to be associated with such a deceptive company?

Probably GREED. and the idea that the dirty work is being done by someone else therefore, hands are clean.You must climb this mountain. There is no elevator. ---- Don't stick your finger in the liquid nitrogen.

If you don't actually read it, it looks like a bill, and it looks like you forgot to renew a domain. I would imagine that there are people who skim through it and if they aren't sure about their domain details, it would have them switching registrars at that inflated price.

I've received a couple of these over the past couple of months and just tossed them. Here's a copy of one that I found online, I've blocked out the domain information.
