Is a Scam? Domain Networks Bill Review

Can anyone tell me if Domain Networks Bill located at is legitimate or a scam? The website, which claims to be an online directory listing for top websites from local businesses from around the world and appears to be around from 2002, is using an address used by another company. This is what makes me question the legitimacy of Domain Networks. If you have any information about Domain Networks, please share in a comment below.

July 15, 2023….received yet another invoice from this company. They have been sending a fake “invoice” annually for the past three years. Why are they still being allowed to scam people/businesses? Is there no organization willing to sit this place down….it seems that some branch of the government should be looking into this scam…..they must have a massive mail dump going trough the USPS system consistently! Oh I forgot, they are too busy “spying” on middle class America and it’s churches, instead of crime families!

Yes this is totally a scam that I fell for the first time. I was busy and not tracking that well and out of anxiety about loosing my site address. There paperwork looked correct but I was registered already with a different company.They rely on that reflex panic to get you to pay up. Sent an invoice to me again. First time shame on you, second shame on me so no thanks. You cant get money back form them once you have paid. I don't understand how they are allowed to stay in business.

Totally a scam, don't send any money. They send several fake "Invoices" per year, total scam.

I found out from a friend driving to my house 15 hrs away, he tried to get directions.

This was when I found out when he tried to Google maps and my place is registered “cowboy web hosting” I have no idea how this happened!

I’m trying to look into my Social Security and they will not give me any information because they say I’m running a business!

All I got was a voicemail as well. I’m gonna be one squeaky wheel. Any suggestions from anyone else? Please and thank you

I don't believe that Domain Networks is an outright fraudulent operation, but they are definitely a scam in that they heavily promote their directory listing service as something that will help local businesses improve their marketing for their products or services, which they can not or do not actually do. And, they claim they will do so for an insane annual amount, generally $289 in the several invoice-looking letters I receive from them periodically. I have several business domains that I maintain, and the actual domain registration fees are paid through the web hosting providers I use for typically $25 to $35 annually. They do actually include your business in their "listing services" but that listing is worthless. No one looking for a local business will likely never see your listing for several reasons. First, no one looking for a local business would even know this "company" even existed to help them find the business they are looking for. Anyone would normally go to Google, Yahoo Search, Bing Search, etc., and search there to find the same, if not more information, about any business or business category you can imagine. Second, searching with any of the common search engines is so much easier than searching through Domain Networks listings. All domain networks is doing is sort of publishing a private version of the old telephone book Yellow Pages, and their only listed businesses will be those dumb enough to fall for their scam.

The Yellow Pages, as well as all the search engines mentioned above, all list businesses in whatever area you are searching, and not just the ones who have bought a listing on Domain Networks.

Bottom line - Domain Networks is clearly not claiming to be a domain registration company, and their so-called listing service is definitely a scam since it is promoting services that have none of the benefits they claim to provide to those who purchase a listing. They are simply trying to sell a listing service for an insane price to businesses who already are listed by all search engines at no cost at all, and they don't even do as good a job as the free search engines do.

I also do not believe they intend to keep promoting their scam since their own domain is currently (September 2022) for sale.

In my opinion this is a fraud. I called them, only voice mail, only PO Box, they wanted me to send them $289 to renew my domain name that is $39.78 for 2 years. Confirmed with GoDaddy who informed me they were looking into this issue. Anyone can search and pick up domain names. Report them to the attorney generals office from the state they do business in, though they may changes offices, addresses, states each year.

This SCAM bill comes every year - straight to the circular file #13.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
