My friend registered a domain name just 4 months ago and just sent an email saying they tried charging her card for $12.95 renewal but were unsuccessful.  These liars lured her through an Ad on Google search for .50 cent domain name and she got excited and bought it.  Well now she regrets doing any business with and is thankful she changed cards before they were able to charge her.  They could have easily put her into overdraft with their crooked charging people for a very early renewal.  No host or domain registrar out there would renew this early.  Avoid at all costs!
