The domain that turn into dust

Saturday, November 01, 2008

After talking to my two friends about what type of domain and hosting to buy I finally decided yesterday.

Package #1
Domain: for $6.99/ a year

Package #2
Domain: $10.20/ a year
Hosting: $3.36/Quarterly

I chose Package #2 but then again I changed my mind and picked package #1. I went to package # 1 site and applied for it. At the end of the transaction, it was indicated that I have to wait for 24 hours for my code. So I decided to browse for blogger themes and create a new blog. After 4 hours of browsing, the only thing I got is headache for installing themes and then trying to figure out what went wrong with the code. That's the reason why I don't like blogger. It always makes me mad every time I tried to change my themes.And then when I decided to stop, I got curious and opened my email. There, the email that I've been waiting. :) I called hubby so we could read the email together. After reading the email, we were dumbfounded.  We need  to send a proof of identification ( I.D or Passport) either by fax or email in order for them to authenticate our identity. According to the email, they need that because of the rampant scamming on-line. Come on, Were the one shielding money here not them. So why do they need to know us? Hubby got mad and decided to cancel it. It looks like a scam to us. What do you think? They are inquiring for PII and we believe it is as scam to ask for those information.
