Today I went out to get my mail after my and along with lost of letters from colleges, (I must get 5 letters and 10 emails every day from Universities) There was an official looking envelope with the security ink on the inside. It looked like the envelope my various bank statements come in.

The outside had a nice logo that stated Liberty Names of America and below it said Personal and Confidential. It looked really official.I though I may have a problem with one of my names Trade Mark of something.

After opening it I found a letter telling me this domain I registered a year ago is almost due for renewal and they wanted me to renew it with them. The only problem is their prices.

$29.00 for 1 year, $49.00  for 2 years and I could get the .net .org, .info. and .biz for an extra 49.00 for 2 years.

These prices are horrible and no experienced domainer would ever renew with them but because it looks so official and looks like a bill I would guess that they get lots of people who own one domain and they renew it with them. After reading down in smaller print they say in bold "This notice is not a bill."

Their website is LNOA.com and they even send a return envelope to send your money in with. How convenient.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up and hopefully I will save some people some money one day.

Has anyone else received these letters? What do you think of their business plan?

    First off congrats on the many letters from Universities and the like. As far as the letters, I get a ton every week from various web development, hosting, etc. All go to the recycle bin.

    Thanks for the heads up Brian. I received something similar last week and trashed it.

    Thanks for putting this up. I’ve gotten some from a similar company. Would you mind scanning the letter so we can see it as a reference? Or taking a picture?

    Thanks.

    It’s been a few months since I got one, but I’ve probably gotten 15-20 over the years. With the 100′s of names I have I’m surprised I don’t get more, but I’m not complaining. They kill enough trees sending me their silly notices. Maybe if they tried less sneaky tactics and offered competitive prices they might have a chance?!?

    They even send them out to people here in the UK.

    I have had a few of them in the past.

    Put them straight into the Trash Can!

    Just waste it, it isn´t worth the effort. They are taking cash? That´s a absolutely no no!
    As more domains you own the more letters of this kind you will receive, it is like that what comes sometimes on the mail, “renew with us and blabla”
    Maybe you can scan that envelope as a example for others not to fall into that?

    Salute, Chris
