there are a lot of companies who try and get you to register your domain
names with them. i get hardcopy letters and e-mails all the time offering
to chge my domain name registrations to some registrar other than
directnic for merely 4 or 5 times what i pay directnic.
unless you signed up with whoisguard i would ignore the notice.
whois guard is a separate service from domain name registration
here is a discussion of the try and get you to change registrar scam:
