    I got at least 3 emails like this.
    I do like the line:
    Failure to complete your Domain name search engine registration by the expiration date may result in cancellation of this offer making it difficult for your customers to locate you on the web.

    I guess the offer is no good if you do not take advantage of their offer....:LOL

    And then there are the one that actually send you mail via the USPS and want mega bucks to transfer and renew your domain.
