[DNS] Have IRA gone one lie too far?

[DNS] Have IRA gone one lie too far?

One of my clients rang today querying an IRA "offer" that says, and I quote:
"Internet Registration Australia is authorised by the administrator of the
.com.au namespace to renew your domain name(s)".

Thereafter it proceeds to solicit a 10-year fee for a 2-year service.  The
renewal isn't even due until the end of March next year.

Why can't we cut these crooks off at the knees?  They are certainly NOT
authorised to renew my client's domain name, and to claim to be so is in my
eyes gross misrepresentation and a blatant lie.

C'mon you legal lot - do I, or my client, have recourse?

ING are now trying to scare com.au domain name holders into buying the same
name in the .com space to prevent cyber squatting" ...

This is an interesting tactic for an organisation which has registered:

australianit.com
asic.com.au
auda.info
aunic.info
etc ...

Here's IRA's latest attempt to get people to switch their "domain
management" over to them.

ING's most recent attempt is here:

and here's my complete set of "renewal notices" ... is this all of them?
