    WDRP compliance email

    Just received the following:
    To: [email protected]
    Subject: Important Notice: Please Verify Contact Data for your Domain Name(s)


    Dear Domain Holder,

    This message is a reminder to help you keep the contact data associated with your domain registration up-to-date.

    As of Mar 31, 2004, we are required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to send you this reminder by the Anniversary date of each registered Domain Name that is subject to the terms and conditions of that organization.

    Below is a list of domain names with your email address listed as the registrant or administrative contact. The current contact information associated with the domain may be verified by following the link provided.
    If any of the contact data is inaccurate, it must be corrected. If the contact data is accurate, no further action is required to comply with this notice.

    Please remember that under the terms of your registration agreement, the provision of false Whois (contact) information can be grounds for cancellation of your domain name registration.

    Domain Names with Anniversary Dates between April 1 and April 30

    Name: Registration Date:
    ------ -----------------
    Several names and URLs to (aparently) view info.


    Thank you for your attention.

    Sincerely,

    WDRP Compliance
    This appears to be legitimate, yet I've never had one before today. Anyone else seen this yet?

    WDRP Emails
    WDRP emails are legitimate communication from eNom to domain holders about the WHOIS information attached to domain names. ICANN mandated this communication. eNom has chosen to white-label the communication to protect reseller customer relationships.

    Anniversary date.

    When I first started getting them I did a double take to make sure it wasn't a D**A type of scam that tries to get people to transfer their domain.

    LOL..I simply replied with a F U Scammer note.

    If Enom want's us to reply they should make VERY sure that THEIR name is somewhere in the email and not from some unknown url. Never heard of WDRP.

    Can ICANN take away domains from owners just like that.

    As of October 31, 2003, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires that a reminder notice be sent to the registrant by the Anniversary date of each Domain Name registration that is subject to ICANN's terms and conditions. Thank you for responding to this notice. For further details regarding ICANN's requirement please visit http://www.icann.org/registrars/wdrp.htm

    The current contact information associated with the domain is displayed below. If any of the contact data is inaccurate, it must be corrected.

    they can't use their name, they are emailing EVERYONG including your customers, so they want it to be as much anonymous as possible.

    they would do a thing like the renewal notice and send it from our My Info settings like"my company name <[email protected]>"

    would be better

    It seems ICANN will start cracking down on incorrect whois info:

    http://internetnews.com/xSP/article.php/3334181

    I also got an email yesterday for one customers domain, via DirectI, although the whois info is actually valid, so waiting to hear back from them on that.

    I think the big registrars will comply with this but i bet many of the smaller guys wont unless forced to.

    even if your whois info is valid you'll still get emails, since they are automated and as reminders.

    I agree as I did a double take on it as well, and it simply is just written like a scam email, not to mention we all tell everyone NOT to trust things like this. Have it coming from the ETP, just like renewals. Silly that it doesn't.
