I thought I should share this with everyone:
ICANN has sent the following notice regarding 'fraudulent'
solicitation coming from a 'dispute resolution; provider:
Many domain-name registrants are receiving "Domain Dispute
Notification" mailings from an entity identifying itself as "XChange
Dispute Resolution." The mailings falsely state that XChange is an
"ICANN authorized arbitrator" and that the registrant must mail in a
"security deposit fee" to defend "ownership of the domain name."
A scanned copy of the deceptive mailings is available at:
instructs registrants to send a check for the security
deposit, made payable to "XChange Reciprocal Services" at 490 Fallon
Road, Petaluma, CA 94952-9655.
The sender of these notices has not been approved by ICANN as a
provider of dispute-resolution services under ICANN's Uniform
Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP). The authoritative list
of all approved providers is posted on the ICANN website at:
Registrants should not send money as requested by this notice.
Registrants who receive the notice should contact an appropriate
governmental law enforcement/consumer protection agency to report the
incident. Recipients can also fax the notice to ICANN at
+1 310 823-8649.
The complete text of the advisory is available on the ICANN website
It just never ends!

If it's not one (or several) of them sending out letters saying a domain is about to expire, and they should register right now by mailing a reply (and switching registrars)...this is a new one that I haven't seen yet. I hope ICANN can nip this early and it looks like they are trying.
