Domain Renewals - Beware!

Helpful Hint: Those "Domain Renewal" notices that you may receive in the mail most likely aren't from your domain holder. Those companies bank on you NOT checking where your domain is actually registered and sending them a check, etc. Then they request a transfer from your current registrar. If the domain is "locked from transfer" or if the transfer is denied, they will keep your money. Your domain will not be renewed and you will still have to renew it with your current registrar. And don't expect a refund.
Check the fine print. It usually says "This is not a bill".
