"domain.tld" not fully registered Print

  • 0

Had this email arrive recently, apparently triggered by registering a domain name several days ago (4, in fact). It's an absolute scam, meant to elicit a response where you sign up for some service they offer.
Be careful, and don't follow random links regarding domains or hosting that are not from us without asking, please.

It was sent from:
From: "Domain Support - {{last_name or \"Hosting\"}}" <info@beatriciphotography.co.uk>
<<< (the info in the curly braces {} is their script failing to properly manage "placeholders") >>>
To: <<my email>>
Reply-To: "Domain Support - {{last_name or \"Hosting\"}}" <support@searchregistrar.com>

The email:
Thank you for claiming <<yourdomain>>.com yesterday.

The URL is now available for use in your Namesilo, LLC account.

To complete registration, please click here. << (links to the scammers site)

Without this registration, your website will not appear on search indexes like Google, MSN, Yahoo, Bing and more.

Don’t allow this registration to expire without completing it here.

Thank you,
