If you received a transfer verification email but you did not request a transfer, please check the domain WHOIS (at http://www.internic.net/whois.html). If the registrar listed already shows as 1API, you may ignore the email as being sent out in error by the old-provider. The transfer is part of our domain migration from one back-end provider to another as mentioned in the domain policy;
"Effective June 1, 2012, all renewals will effect a migration to our new accredited partner 1API. You acknowledge and agree that, in accordance with ICANN rules this will result in 60 day transfer lock. "
