I got an email earlier subject "Completed Outbound Domain Name Transfer"

It was really from them and about a name that was out of that directnic account for a long time.

I tried logging into my account and was told it was locked and needed to call them. I search news to see if they had some breach but found nothing.

Anyone else got an email today from them?

Yes, I have! Seemed really sketchy. Very similar situation.

I haven't tried to access my acct yet.

I received it as well, for domains I transferred in 2018. I assumed it was just a mess up on their end.

I too got one email for the domains which were transferred years ago.

They might have started using .xyz domain as their email sender.

It's always concerning when you receive an email like this at 3am, when the domains are located elsewhere. I checked the domains and they are where they should be. I logged in and changed my password at Directnic, just to be sure! Use two factor authentication anywhere it's offered as well!

Yes, same here. A client received the notice last night. The domain was successfully transferred away, way back in May/June of 2016!

We apologize for the confusion. These are emails sent from Directnic, so there was not a breach. When cleaning up historical transfer records, it accidentally triggered these erroneous email notices. You can ignore these transfer completed emails as they are from some time ago. Feel free to reply to the email if you need support.

Thanks,
Brian D.

I don't use that registrar, so did not get the notice, but a number of other people are reporting on social media receiving the same message, for domain names long since transferred.

Yes. I've got the same email too.
It is about "Completed Outbound Domain Name Transfer" for my domain registered at Dynadot...
I understand when they apologize for the first email. But when the same email come again yesterday (Thrusday 26 Jan 2023), it seem weird to me...
