Beware of this Domain Services scam

While not strictly illegal, the outfit calling themselves Domain Services are presenting themselves as an essential internet service without which client websites will not be able to be found in internet searches. Their email campaign suggests that if you do not pay their fee, there is no point in having a site on the internet. Essentially, they are masquerading as something they are not and as such may be regarded as a scam.

Their email message carries this warning:
"Failure to complete your seo domain name registration nzwebdesigners.com* search engine optimization service process may make it difficult for customers to find you on the web"   *Yoiur domain name will appear here.

If you wish to verify our assessment of this company have a look at the search results page here.

Rest assured, your site will be searched and indexed automatically by the major search engines without paying the Domain Services 'registration' fee !
