New spate of fake invoices from NL Domein Host

22 February 2018

Once again, reports are coming in to Fraud Help Desk about fake invoices purporting to come from NL Domein Host.

Recipients are told they are due € 196 for registering a domain name. This is not an invoice, but only an offer, as it reads in the small print. This means you are under no obligation whatsoever to pay.

Here’s an example of the fake invoice (click to enlarge):

We have warned about fake invoices from ‘NL Domein Host’ before, on several occasions: 9 March 2016, 12 July 2017 and 7 November 2017.
