Reading the Fine Print

Have you received a document in the mail from DNS Services or a similar company that looks like this?Should a dealer pay this

At first glance you might have assumed that you are a current customer, after all, their is an account number on the form along with your company name.

It may appear at first glance that you are already a customer

Lets examine the document closer. The center of the document has your domain name listed and even your dns information, along with an annual fee of $65 for managed DNS backup business services.

Lets Read the Fine Print

But let’s read the center area closely. That’s right, they have spelled it out for you on the third line down in all caps, “this is a solicitation for the order of goods or services or both, and not a bill, invoice, or statement of account due. You are under no obligation to make any payments on account of this offer unless you accept this offer.

So you do not owe DNS Services, INC any money, this is merely a solicitation and if you send in a payment, you are accepting their offer.

Make sure to read all documents thoroughly that ask for any type of payment. You may have incorrectly assumed that money was due, when indeed it is not.
