Ha! I got one of these scam/fake notices today (“FINAL NOTICE – Your account is pending cancellation”) which looks like this:

FINAL NOTICE - Your account is pending cancellation

This is a scam – don’t fall for it. There is NO such thing as “search engine registration” so don’t fall for it. Go to Google and type in your domain name. If your website shows up, Google knows about it and you’re “registered” and you don’t need to do anything else.

I think this segment of the email is bogus:

You have received this message because you elected to receive special notification offers. If you no longer wish to receive our notifications, please unsubscribe here or mail written request to Domain SEO Service Registration Corp., Miami Beach, FL 33139. If you have multiple accounts with us, you must opt out for each one individually in order to stop receiving SEO notices. We are a search engine optimization company. We do not register or renew domain names. We sell traffic generator software. This message is CAN-SPAM compliant. THIS IS NOT A BILL OR AN INVOICE. THIS IS A SEO PURCHASE OFFER. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PAY THE AMOUNT STATED UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THIS PURCHASE OFFER. This message contains promotional material strictly along the guidelines of the CAN-SPAM act of 2003. We have distinctly mentioned the source mail-id of this email and also disclosed our subject lines. They are in no way misleading. Please do not reply to this email, as we are not able to respond to messages sent to this address.

I “elected to receive special notification offers” at one time? Where? Tell me!

Look above, it says you’re under no obligation to purchase this. It’s just a solicitation for SEO services from some company who says they will get you ranked in search engines. My guess is that they post one link for you “somewhere” and they’re charging this $86 for that one link.

Don’t do this. It’s not worth it. It won’t help. Save your money and get some real SEO help from a reputable company – not one that sends you spam email.
