I get them all the time. Half the time I know my details are correct so I just trash it, nothing's ever come about it. But if I have the time, or I'm bored, I click the link, look at my details and then close out.
I receive emails like this one on a regular basis.
Has anyone seen something bad actually happen from ignoring these emails?

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Received these a couple of times. Details were correct so I trashed the mail too.
I too keep getting such emails from time to time. But then I know that my details are correct so i dont care to even cross check it lol.
I received this email once on my 1and1.com account but never got it again
If your details are correct, you can ignore this email. But if they are not correct, I'd update the details.
Title says: "Urgent...Check ASAP!!!!!"
Message: Discover how I made $500/day 100% on auto pilot!!"
Then a crappy link to .info website. And the website is horribly made, full of spelling errors (kinda like my posts ), and product priced $2.
Maybe I should send them message with a link to Internet Marketing Basics" website. The website would say only this: "Do not spam others!"
If your details aren't correct you can just loose your domain, so I'd keep them accurate.
My details are correct so as soon i get one of these i just delete it.. get them from namecheap, godaddy etc..
