Domain Registry of Canada SCAM

The letter starts out with the words "As a courtesy to domain name holders...". If you got a letter in the mail that looks like this one I posted do not pay these crooks. Shred it. This is obviously a scam to try to get your to switch from your current domain registrar, in my case it was GoDaddy, to this company at hugely inflated prices. The document has the look of a Canadian Government document, designed to fool the unsuspecting person. If you don't look carefully you may be fooled by this document into thinking that you are about to lose your domain name unless you fork over some exorbitant sum of money. The scam is widely reported all over the internet. What's surprising is that such a business is permitted to operate without government shutting it down. The government is apparently aware of it Competition Bureau.
