I just received what looks like a 'renewal invoice' style of letter from Domain Names NZ, who are offering to register a domain name that looks very similiar to one I already have (the letter offers a .net.nz instead of my .co.nz) for the paltry sum of $237 for 2 years !!!

A quick look at their website suggests they may be Australian based (application form requests an ACN). Haven't we had this before from the Aussies ? :|

Me too!! for my .net.nz address as opposed to .co.nz. I simply through it out.

This has now been referred to the Commerce Commission by Domainz as well. You may also want to complain to the Commission.
