Verisign trying to slam EDU domain holders?

Anyone else received bogus bills for .edu domains from Verispam/Notwork
Solutions recently?

Educause is running the .edu registry, and there's presently no charge.
<http://www.educause.edu/edudomain/>

However, in at least one case this does not appear to be stopping Verisign
from sending out bogus invoices that state the .edu domain being dunned
will be removed unless the bill is paid.

This smells exactly like the "implicit authority to transfer registry"
scams that the likes of Register.com have long run against naive .com
domain holders.

Have others run into this kind of slamming attempt by Verisign against
their EDU domains?
