Simple Domain Host Scam and Fake Invoices
Advertisement

I received a fake invoice from Simple Domain Host, with no account number. I have never interacted with them but they are soliciting yearly web hosting for my website that they do not host. They encourage a credit card payment to avoid receiving paper invoices in the future. They state that hosting my website with them will ensure my website remains active and that failure to renew by the expiration date may result in my website outages and a loss of my online identity.

This newly created website (Simple Domain Host) is a little bit over a year old and hides is domain registration information by using a third party service. The website has a poor global ranking of 3,000,000 for a website hosting company. You cannot trust a web hosting websites that have ranking of 100,000 or more.

Also, their Knowledge Base is empty. If you need help with email, domain registration, or web hosting, you will not find anything in it.

My conclusion is, Simple Domain Host is a sales solicitation that looks exactly like a bill. Praying on people who don't know better. Since bill is a solicitation, you should not pay them. This type of practice is unethical and prays on many people out there trying to make it as a small business, but don't know better when it comes to hosting.

    Haha. I got my 'bill' from them today. I have had my domain with a different provider for over seven years and am on automatic billing anyway. They are pretty sneaky. It looks like a real bill and had my business name, address, and my web address with the total yearly bill amount of $180.

    They have a website with other services, but no real info on the web services. I checked out the street view on Google and it seems to be some sort of warehouse that is the address in Florida.

    I click on the social media icon and it just takes you to Facebook, not an actual business page. Tricky, tricky. I called the number and of course, go the message machine and left a message pretending I was worried and wanting to set up a payment plan.

    They, of course, called me right back and I told them I saw that it was a scam and the foreign lady (with a Middle Eastern accent so maybe the call was outsourced?) did not seem worried at all when I said I was going to report them and said that the letter said that it is not a bill.

    I can see many people actually paying this or whoever pays the bill for the business getting it and paying it. I was wondering how they haven't been shut down, but that little thing in there that says it's not a bill is the loophole. It's not like one of those bills we are all used to getting in the mail that plainly says it's not a bill, this looks like an actual bill and has an account number, etc.

    received an invoice dated 9/1. It too has an account number on it. I was never heard of them before so I googled it and found out it is a scam. wonder how much money they've made doing this and why no one is shutting them down.

    I blew my top when I received this bill today (August 19, 2020) until I read it and found it to be a total scam! What scum! How is this allowed!? $180.00! Get lost you losers! DO NOT GIVE THESE SCAM ARTISTS A DIME! BEWARE!

    Received a fake bill from them as well, this one had an account number on it and referenced a website that had nothing to do with our business. Absolute fraud!

    Got one from them in the mail yesterday. TOTAL FRAUD JOB. Do not pay this entity.

    What a joke. They want to charge me $180 for a domain that’s cost me less than $10 a year for over a decade. Stay away.
