DomainHoldings Warns Someone Using .Biz Version of Their Name May Be Attempting Scam 

I got an email this morning from DomainHoldings.com VP of Operations Wendy Leung with information that all domain buyers and sellers should be aware of. Wendy said they have reason to believe that someone using DomainHoldings.biz may be posing as the legitimate Florida based brokerage to lure domain owners. The .biz domain, which is listed under WhoIs Privacy at GoDaddy, hiding the owner's identity, has been redirected to DH's .com website without their permission. When someone clicks on the .biz link in an email and lands on the real DH site, that could leave the impression the contact is from the legitimate company. 

Wendy said DomainHoldings is conducting a full investigation. In the meantime they want to make sure the community is made aware of this and  understands that DomainHoldings.biz is not associated with Domain Holdings in any way. She noted that anyone wanting to work with the company should contact them directly via phone or email to sales@domainholdings.com

Whatever the .biz owner may be doing, at the very least it look like an obvious case of  cyber-squatting on DH's well-known brand.
