Yet another Network Solutions/Verisign deception plot at work.
My company has a number of names (unfortunately) registered with Verisign.
So we moved one of them about gosh, the beginning of August.

So guess what we get in the email this morning?   A dunning notice for
*not paying* for our domain registration.  And an offer to reclaim the
domin before "it becomes available to the general public".

This is as bad as those people that send bulk mail to seniors in envelopes
that look like the ones Social Security checks come in...

Why are these people with business practices like this allowed to have
*anything to do* with running critical Internet infrastructure???

   Best regards,

PS: the redacted note below is exactly what we got, minus the names....

Subject: Retrieve Expired Domain Names

Dear Network Solutions(R) Customer,

Although your domain name registration(s) has been deleted from active
status in your Network Solutions account, it can still be retrieved before
being placed back on the market to the general public.

Due to non-payment, the following domain name(s) has expired:

[our domain name.com]

If you inadvertently neglected to renew the domain name(s), contact a
Network Solutions Customer Care Representative at 1-866-234-4126 to check
if this service can be restored to active status. For a fee, in most
instances, we can register the domain name(s) to you with a one-year term
added to the expiration date.

Don't let this domain name(s) become available to the general public for
anyone to register. Call us within 7 days of receipt of this e-mail at
1-866-234-4126 to ensure that the domain name(s) is restored back to your


Network Solutions(R) Customer Care
