Internet Register Ireland – potential scam
The IEDR has notified us of a potential scam regarding an entity known as the ‘Internet Register Ireland’. To give you a little background on this case, a company called ‘DAD Deutscher Adressdienst GmbH’ operating under the name ‘Internet Register Ireland’ is currently in the process of contacting businesses with registered .ie domain names by post and by fax, soliciting them to register their domain name with the ‘Internet Register Ireland’. The letter will request the recipient to fill out their form and return it to them signed. It should be noted that they charge an excessive fee of approximately €958 for the registration of the .ie domain name in their database.
The IEDR has notified all IE Resellers about this scam and advised them to notify their clients accordingly. More information is available at the following url:
