    I had a call just now trying to get £30 per year out of me

    Has any one heard of "Federal Bureau of Domain Names"

    http://www.fbodn.com/

    It's a private company and seems odd to me

    They are providing a service for the charge, if you agree to it, there is little to be done. I know verisign has gotten into hot water other the practice.
