A) Often the domains are months away from expiring... it is a "scare tactic".
B) They are not sending these letters to THEIR customers, they are 
sending them to everyone else's customers, with fine print at the 
bottom or back of the letter that the piece is an advertisement 
(which legally covers them). They make the piece look like a renewal 
form, when in actuality it is a transfer form.

Obviously designed by a grifter-turned-marketing-exec.
