    Check out this Big Con!!!


    I just got this

    I wounder how many will fall for this one.

    Look at how it is worded and sent around the time you get a renewal notice.

    The email came from

    Here is the link they want you to click to pay.
    No I did not click the link.

    What's funny sometime about these emails from so-called registration companies is when they use a domain that I do not own.

    Dear owner of,
    blabh blabh blabh

    Pay now or else your site is dead on the net.

    And what is even worse than the emails?
    Getting a letter in regular mail that looks like a bill for your domain.

    The payment page isn't even secure like they say it is.

    This is as bad as the Domain Registry of America sending you junk mail daily.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they are both ran by the same people.

    Search engine registration.
    Pay up by Feb. 7, 2011 or no one will find me in the search engine!

    Got to love those freaking spammers!

    But I wonder, how many people get emails like this and actually go to the site and pay up?

    Good catch.

    There's this infamous note from "godaddy" which apparently made it to my inbox a couple times. I removed the actual links in this example. The second link in this message has a copy of a legitimate URL as anchor text but it actually links to domains like etc. Very easy to pass unnoticed.
