Several of my clients are getting these too - but I have warned them and
they now call me the instant they get any paperwork of this kind. Thank
goodness.

The database they are using is an old one too as 3 clients who let domains
lapse more than 18 months ago are also getting these tricky promotions.

I too have received "invoices" from Internet Registrations Australia for
each of my clients - enough of them to paper a wall. The misleading
statement from these people (who I call the IRA) in a tear-off coupon
states "Total Due" followed by a dollar amount calculated by them for
each of the domains you don't have - but could have. I have one for a
client to the value of $990.00.  But .... I (or they) could win a trip
to Fiji, it says!

Nowhere on the form does it indicate the period of renewal but the price
is $198.00 - so I would presume it is for the standard 2 year period.

A trap for the innocent if ever I saw one.
