Domain name scammers - beware

    If any of you have received a letter that looks like an invoice for a
    domain name you may own (or once owned) then beware - you don't have to
    pay it.

    Domain name registrants in New Zealand are sent pro-forma invoices
    asking for $225 for a two-year period through NZ Domain Registration
    Ltd, with an office address given as 60 Cook Street, Auckland. The
    address is the same that Chesley Rafferty used in the past and leads to
    The Corporate Centre, which supplies serviced offices and telephone
    answering for customers.

    Chesley Rafferty tried this on a couple of years ago - sending out
    pro-forma invoices - and ended up before the Australian commerce
    commission equivalent (ACCC) and is now bankrupt. His brother appears
    to be running the company now.
