Have you been confronted with financial demands to “recover” your domain name? This is one of the most common domain name fraud experiences made by businesses in Australia. Small business owners who forget to renew the domain names of their business website get contacted by a concerned party offering to recover their domain name at an exorbitant fee. The truth is different than what it looks. The caller registers recently expired domain names of still operational businesses and then places the “concerned call” to offer their expensive recovery service.
In all reality these people are not helping, they are extorting money from business website owners who lost track of their domain ownership.
