If you get an email like the one below, DO NOT PANIC, but please, please, please, don’t fall for it!
This is a scam. There is nothing legitimate about the email I received below. Unfortunately,a lot of people who own a domain or website don’t realize this.
This company will not register you domain. In fact, they CAN’T register your domain. They couldn’t even do this service for you if they wanted to, because they haven’t asked for the login credentials for the domain. And while we’re on the subject, don’t give your login credentials to anybody who sends an email like this.

It takes a lot of time to build a commercial website solution even with amazing tools such as content management systems and software solutions. A truly professional website takes professional expertise, all around security, skills and most of all marketing.
Not many individuals can do everything I do. This allows me to charge less than bigger companies and gain the recognition and national attention.
The biggest factor is I don't take on any project and do a half-[done] job. This is why you can expect to pay only higher prices with my business and I stick to it with full dedication and proven success.
