Ivan is blogging (and sent me an IM) on such a scam mail he received on his mailbox today. The paper came from a company "based" in New York, and they asked him to pay US$966 for a domain already registered on his name - and not registered with the scammers of course.
This mail came from Prague, but in the last couple of years New Zealand companies received similar letters from an Australian business trying to do the same.
Many companies fall for this scam because the accounts departments have no clue on how domain registration works, and simply pay the paper - which is not an official document at all!
Make sure your accounts department check with IT before paying any invoices related to domains, e-mail or Internet services. Let them know about this scam.
