+ - Network Solutions Opts Customer Into $1,850 Security Service->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Brent Simmons has posted about a trouble email he received from Network Solutions. He registered two domains with them in the 1990s, and the domains remain registered today. He just received an email informing him that he'd been opted into some kind of security service called Weblock, and that he would be billed $1,850 for the first year. Further, he would be billed $1,350 for every year after the first. Believing it to be a scam, he contacted the official Network Solutions account on Twitter. They said it was real. The email even said he couldn't opt out except by making a phone call."
