    when you do a google search trying to get an ANSWER for a problem, end up on a forum ( this problem doesn't happen on DNT ) and someone has asked the same question, THEN posts " ohh its ok I found the solution" but doesn't post the bloody solution !!!!!!

    Hah, Cloudfare. Were they worried about a DDOS or something?

    Seriously though, scumbags. How do they get away with it?

    you will probable find an empty office or a "serviced" office, if not WOW.

    the problem is they are doing nothing wrong except wasting my time.

    Client today "I need you to fix you up for this invoice", "ignore it, it's spam mail". "I paid this invoice last yeah"...

    Sure enough he'd transferred his domain away from Melbourne IT. I guess thankfully the high pricing was similar. So yea, people fall for this

    People's lack of scam awareness means these mongrels win more than they should.

    I'm in the cbd @ noon 5/2/14 , I always drop into the nescafe? nespresso? or what shop as Helena LOVES it and grab some blends ( the only blends I drink contain hops )

    so maybe I might take a walk up a few streets and see whats happening.

    Guidex, how would you like to join me?

    Domain register scam

    hi, PLEASEEEEEE read this.​
    I want to SHUT down "domain register" , they are sending these misleading email invoices "domain available" to my clients and no doubt yours.​
    they are using the services of AussieHQ which I have just phoned and they have told me domain register are just a reseller so its not their fault. fair enough​
    if you have any evidence or stories of misleading conduct then PLEASE email it to feedback@uber.com.au the owners of AussieHQ​
    the more we can send in the more chance we can stop them, futile I know as they will just move to another one.​
