It is a scam however it's not an illegal one.
They no longer word the "notices" to give the impression that you are
already their customer - it's obvious in the wording that they want you to
switch to their overprices "service".

It used to be that they included a prepaid envelope however they have
stopped doing that now so I recommend you just throw the notice, etc away.
The one of these scams to be very watchful of is the one operated by "EU
Registry Services". This one is a criminal scam which Cambridge police
seem to be collecting "evidence" on.
The general advise for these things is the same for all of them - if you
receive a domain renewal notice from any company that is not the company
you registered the domain through either ignore it or contact the company
the domain is registered with. Never sign and return such a document.
