I registered many years ago domain name via 1and1 Yesterday I received letter form Arvato Finance (debt collectors). They asked me to pay debt 10£ for domain name and + 15£ charge for late payment . In the letter Arvato mentioned that "please do not contact "1&1": all contact should be made with Arvato Finance Service LTD." I called to Arvato and they told me, if I am not paying this money, I will go to court!! Great!! if you traveled and forget to renew domain, 1&1 can destroy your credit record!!! So.. it's your choice registering domains via 1&1 or not, but Myself never-never will use this sh--t company!!! Best Regards and good luck dear domainers!!
