Consumer Alert

 

Issued by auDA - 18 June 2003

 

Regarding

 

Letter/Fax from Domain Names Australia Pty Ltd

 

 

auDA has become aware that an company named Domain Names Australia Pty
Ltd (DNA) is sending letters and or faxes to some domain name
registrants regarding the .com version of their .au domain name being
available or unregistered.

 

The communication is headed "Domain Unregistered" and could, in auDA's
opinion, be easily mistaken for an invoice.  To this extent, auDA
considers that the communication could be misleading or deceptive.

 

auDA believes that registrants should be aware that DNA is a company
controlled by Mr Chesley Rafferty, who is also a Director of Internet
Registry Pty Ltd.

 

Both Mr Rafferty and Internet Registry Pty Ltd have been the subject of
previous media releases by auDA which can be located at:
