When a Domain Registration renewal notice is not a Domain Registration renewal notice

Phishing Scams

Here is a misleading email doing the rounds that does its best to disguise itself as a Domain Registration renewal notice.

If you read the tiny grey small print at the foot of the email it actually states: 

We are a search engine optimization company. We do not directly register or renew domain names. We are selling traffic generator software tools. ... THIS IS NOT A BILL. THIS IS A NOTIFICATION OFFER. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PAY THE AMOUNT STATED UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THIS NOTIFICATION OFFER

So in other words the email is not a domain registration renewal notice - it is a carefully crafted email that is attempting to fool you into parting with your money allegedly for a Search Engine Optimisation service from a company in Florida.

Action - Do not click on anything (including the unscubscription link) just delete the email and ignore

This is what the email looks like... (the actual domain name has been replaced with yourdomainname.info)

The subject of the email from Domain Service <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>  is entitled:
