Fwd: Attention: YOURDOMAIN.NET Search Registration

This isn’t so much a scam as a con.  A total con.  If I renew my domain through my regular registrar it will cost me approx $10 – these con artists want $75.

Don’t get taken in by this email.  Renew your domain in the usual way.

I tried the “optout” link at the bottom of this email and it took me to a page that claims my unsuubscribe was successful.  I doubt the authenticity of the page as it had some text that should have been links but weren’t.  We’ll see.
