Why not contact them and see if you can get it resolved?..

Comment #1

I have contacted right after I purchased it....They will hear more from me if I do not get an email within 24 hours...

Comment #2

No you didnt get scammed. They will refund your $13.95.

Here is the deal talked about at two diffrent places: Dotster Promo.

And the one here at Namepros..

Comment #3

I dont see the point in this at all..... you pay them $15 and they send you $14 back, why the hell not just sell you it for $1?..

Comment #4

Did you pay with PayPal? It seems like the problems people have been having almost always come from using PayPal to complete the transaction...

Comment #5

No I paid with a CC. I know many who used PP got the refund usually within 10 to 21 days. I got mine in 2 days. Others who used a CC didnt get charged the full amount just the $1 fee...

Comment #6

Sounds like a domain rebate. hehe..maybe they want to avoid "tasters"...

Comment #7

It's just their crappy system. They authorize the full amount, charge the actual amount, then (usually) fail to remove the initial authorization.

It's simply resolved if you contact them and get someone halfway competent. There's 2 threads around here somewhere about it, I posted the name of the support rep that fixed mine in one of them.

If you don't contact them or they don't remove it, Paypal will automatically remove it one month after the auth date (if you used PP, of course).

So not really "scammed", just incompetency...

Comment #8

Thanks for all the information guys, I later recieved a email stating that I will be refunded the $13.95 and it will only charge $1.00 and no I used my CC as Paypal I personally think is a fraud and scam...

Comment #9

So you know what to do next time then...

Comment #10

Yes as a update, I did get my domain for only $1.00 they refunded me about 6 hours after I purchased it....

Comment #11

Pls who knows whether it does effect on renewal?..

This question was taken from a support group/message board and re-posted here so others can learn from it.
