I wasn’t sure who was going to be happy about the new RAA docs that were published last night. I guess I now have the answer – Telesign.
Telesign have been trying to get “in” with registrars over the last couple of years but their sales tactics are quite lacking.
Today’s missive arrived in my inbox with the subject line: Registrar Accreditation Agreement Limited Offer
Do they honestly think that now is a good time to try flogging their services?
Well obviously they do:
You may have heard about the recent proposed changes to the domain registration process. If not, feel free to read my colleague’s blog in which he summarizes the proposed changes:
TeleSign Verify fulfills this proposed requirement by verifying phone numbers in real-time. We have been doing this for many prominent domain registrars for years and wanted to extend a special limited time offer to help you become compliant before it becomes a requirement.
By being proactive rather than reactive, we want to reward forward thinkers:
· Sign up for a 1 year contract of TeleSign Verify and receive 15% OFF all services for the lifetime of that contract*
· Sign up for a 2 year contract of TeleSign Verify and receive 30% OFF all services for the lifetime of that contract*
Please feel free to contact me directly so that we can discuss how TeleSign can help.
*This is a limited offer for new customers only. The contract must be signed prior to July 31, 2012 to be eligible. Does not apply to accounts under $100 per month.
I replied and told him briefly to go read my blog post, but the message isn’t getting through as they now want to talk to me:
Thanks for the response. I read through your blog and thought it was very interesting. Do you have 15 minutes for a quick chat on the subject and our other fraud prevention services?
Sorry, but I don’t do business with ambulance chasers.
