Domain name scam email

Published on 31st October 2016

Domain name fraud alertThere is a scam doing the rounds at the moment for domain name registration. You will get an email that looks like it’s requesting you to re register your domain name, it’s not.

It is an attempt to scam money, usually about $66, from you for a supposed SEO registration. So to be clear there is NO such thing.

The scam relies on you scanning the email and not reading it properly, something most of us do regularly. You can see an example of the scam email below.

If you are in any doubt forward a copy to me at alan.tomkins@alpha-tango.co.uk and I’ll let you know either way.

Please do not pay for this as you will be wasting money and b) your payment details may be used for fraudulent purposes.

As always please get in touch if you are unsure of any correspondence you get in that looks unusual or is asking for money or details.
