Are you a target for a domain name scam?

If you’re in Canada, have a Web site and own a domain name for it, you have received or will receive an envelope in the mail that looks like this:

Don’t open it, throw it in the trash. Inside is what looks like an invoice to renew your domain, at about 3 times what you are (or should be) paying now. If you open it, and if you’re as busy as most business owners, you may just glance at it and pay it – I know 2 people in Whitehorse who have been nailed so far. I’ve complained to the RCMP about this company, I’ve complained to the Ontario Better Business Bureau about them, and these things still keep coming.
