More often than not, today it is more likely to find unsolicited messages in your email inbox opposed to your physical mailbox. But that is not always the case. Business owners and non-profits are still targeted for mailing scams and unless you know what to look for, they could cost you a lot of money.
Several Spotted Monkey clients have been mailed fraudulent domain expiration notices from unknown companies. These letters look very real. However, if you have your domain or hosting with Spotted Monkey Marketing your letter will always have Spotted Monkey branding on it and we will typically send you the invoice via email.
If you receive an invoice or a domain expiration letter from a company you are not familiar with, whether it is by mail or an email, do not pay it. Even if you recognize the service you are being billed for, do not pay it. Contact Spotted Monkey Marketing, or whoever handles your domain and hosting or any other services, to verify the information you have received. We will be able to determine if the invoice is fake.
