Hi Collin, sounds like you’ve been scammed very easily. While purchasing a domain name, it’s not only about the money we’ve to look, but also we’ve to search the registration company website thoroughly. Because, nowadays scams can be from anywhere. If you’ve any doubt about the company, don’t approach them. The scammer’s real aim is to steal our personal details as well as the credit card details for the bank account transaction.

Duped ….. was I
I wanted to buy a domain for my company; I contacted this website that offered the service at a very reasonable price. I talked to them over the phone and they mentioned some very good domain names at reasonable prices. I immediately bought four of them and the payment was done through credit card. It has been three weeks now and I have still not got any confirmation. Apart from this, I believe the domains that I booked have been already taken and I was duped.
