Dirty Dirty Business
scummy company i take it the directors just take a walk
I LOVE it! I often get letters from Domain Registry of America telling me I need to hurry and renew my domain with them - even though I have never dealt with them. It pisses me off because I know there are some many people out there that would turn their money over to them in fear of losing their little business website.
The article doesn't seem clear on who the company is, but I hope they crack down on the bottom feeders at DROA too!
Yeah, that was a pretty dirty business.
How does one blow 4m? I mean, I can get crazy but still, jeebus!
Wow, were these the same guys that members were reporting on the forum here? I know several posts were made in the domain names sub-forum regarding similar emails subjects. I don't think that anyone who has been here for a while fell for this. I just hope it was members here that started it.
I always get letters from the "Domain Registry of Canada". They want me to pay something like $50 bucks a year to register my domains with them. WTF? I agree, I can see many small business owners getting scared and agreeing to it because the letter and the company seems legit. Very shady stuff, and talk about bad karma.
You know your company is dirty when BHW calls you unethical...
So....they made 4.2 mil and paid 10k? Any criminal convictions or charges for jail time? It doesn't say the blew through the money either but I am wondering where they put some of it. You know one of the 3 was smart enough to stack something away.
I know a case similar to this where the guy made 4 mil and paid out 150k, ran the scam for 3 years. No jail time, nothing. Just one fine
