We’ve heard from many of our clients that a company called DNS Services (www.DNSsvc.com) has been sending them letters that appear to be invoices. Some clients have attached copies of the bills that they have received even.
However, Pamela’s other business, McAbee’s Custom Carpets received their own the other day.
The “bill” looks like you own $65.00 for “DNS Failover for 5 A Records”, etc. At the bottom of the letter it has a section that reads, “Please detach and return this portion with your payment”. It states that it is due “Upon Receipt” and lists an account number and Amount of $65.00.
It goes on to say, “Make checks payable to: DNS Services, Inc”.
However, it does state above the bottom section:
“This is a solicitation for the order of goods or services, or both, and not a bill, invoice, or statement of account due. You are under no obligation to make any payments on account of this offer unless you accept this offer”
If you receive one of these “bills”… Promptly toss it in the trash. It is about as useful as “Domain Registry” letters you get telling you to renew your domain (through them).
Here’s what the bogus / scam letter looks like…. Simply ignore it.
