En Ekstra Bladet last year warned of the 'firm' DNS Denmark, it happened with a clear advice: don't deal with, or pay the traffickers money.
at that Time, the thousands of Danish users spammed with an email that was a digital scam, could an Extra Magazine at the time reveal from the numerous victims. But the critical publicity has apparently not stopped the big deal.
Now it happens just under a new name - IDS Denmark - but with the same content in the messages, as the traffickers will send in order to get smaller companies to buy a useless and expensive domain name.
It also happens to continue with a false message that the 'firm' can stop the registration of a domain that are similar to the Danish network users have as a .dk-domain.
the Most striking difference - apart from the name change - is that the price has now increased a bit, as you can see from the letter here. The physical address to which the unknown domænefuskere use as an alibi, is also continue to a Regus-serviced office. This time in Albertslund and not as previously at Nørreport in Copenhagen.
Regus, according to the former opinions to the Extra Blade on the case abused and supposedly have no agreements with the traffickers.
Technology Digital scam hits Denmark
Fupnummeret hit last year also private individuals and companies in Sweden, Finland and Germany. Again with the address of Regus-building. And the methods were at that time more of the hit in Denmark to share a sharp warning on Trustpilot.
In the email from last year and today is threatened, the users, who already own one .dk-domain, with the fact that if they are not buying an equivalent .com-domain, so it can have 'far-reaching consequences.' For example, the 'confusion in the search engines, or damage to reputation.'
There is namely, according to the mail, another person who will buy it .com-domain, similar to the Danish. However, DNS Denmark has, fortunately, the solution to the problem: Pay us some money.
Then registers the DNS Denmark .com domain for ten years, and 'rejects' the other person, who have requested to get .com domain registered.
Now even the lie
as the organizers claim that they have got their fingers in and can help you with to ensure.
.com-domains, you can look them up here.
as your domain have now, but without .com to last in the search box. Write fx dawn.
whether .com-the domain is available - that is what is lying behind. It makes the also, if it actually is registered and they do not own it - since it alone is the one that owns the domain, who can transfer it to you.
If you know just a bit about how domains are being registered, it is easy to see that the mail from DNS Denmark, is pure nonsense. A check of the domains, as the company says, that the other will record the shows so that they are freely available and can be purchased by anyone without using DNS Denmark.
Usually buy a domain for a year at a time, why it is a very expensive solution with ten years of subscription, such as DNS Denmark offers.
If you've been in the clutches of the company, you can report it to the Consumer, who right now is in the process of investigating the case.
the Extra Leaf has since last summer been trying to get the kingpins of the speech, but no response received. They keep likely in the Netherlands, which the Consumer ombudsman is also planning to cooperate with.

Warns against scams
Already last year there were a website, if you by mistake hit .dk-the domain of the DNSDenmark.com - end up on a page, which warns against fupnummeret.
And now the website .dk-the domain of the IDSDenmark.com also been acquired and directs network users to the same warning page.
the Explanation as to why the architects of .com-pages will not have acquired .dk domains, is likely to as a rule can not be save in the Danish domæneregister, if you are a company.
And that the information in this register would be able to bring the victims, the press and, not least, the authorities closer to, who the organizers actually are.
It is a question, which the Consumer ombudsman right now also trying to find an answer, together with the Dutch authorities.
How to mention Ekstra Bladet last year the case. Then, as now, used behind a Regus-serviced office to legitimize 'their business'. With Regus, you feel, however, abused and know nothing of the company, informed the company last year to Ekstra Bladet.
