[Beware / Warning] New GoDaddy Hack attempt email going around

Received this email on a couple of different accounts:

--------------------------------------
Email subject: Status Alert: Your account contains more than 9740 directories.
Dear Valued GoDaddy Customer.

Your account contains more than 937 directories and may pose a potential performance risk to the server.
Please reduce the number of directories for your account to prevent possible account deactivation.

In order to prevent your account from being locked out we recommend that you create special tmp directory

Use link below:

-------------------------------------

Then it appears to be a normal godaddy link using <a href> but it redirects to swtest.ru (Don't click there)

They disguised their click-thru link good too by putting (DO "NOT" CLICK THIS LINK) (www).godaddy.com.asp.2949482983982928theirsite.ru (DO "NOT" CLICK THIS LINK)

Could maybe have fooled some newcomers.

That arrived in my Gmail spam folder this morning.. and luckily, I'm saavy enough not to have clicked but they'll unfortunately catch many who aren't wise to that ruse.

Just received one very close to that one, although they edit some of the text apparently. Don't forget to report it as spam/scam to your provider if you have one, hopefully the email providers will react.

I've never seen a legit .ru site in my life. As far as I can tell, .ru is always a scam. Why would GoDaddy ever use a .ru? It has a .com!

They illegally steal your info from a public whois, Jules. They are breaking law, but it's not like they care. They'd murder or rape a child if it got them money.

This email address was a .net in fact it was this one domainrss . net i googled it and it directed me to this website. Scary how they get my info. Annoying, I'm glad I'm a little bit on the ball with suspicious emails + I've never paid for an SEO service via the net in dollars. my web hosting company said they'd never heard of this company therefore they cannot email me to tell me anything to do with my domain has expired because only they can do that.

Don't post your domains here (on NamePros) or anywhere else.

It's from a whois scan. If your whois info is public, you are guaranteed to get these kinda things eventually. Best thing you can do is use private registrations (they usually cost a bit).
