    Nope.

    Never saw that or any similar email.

    Wonder if after the cited 24 hours has passed a " follow-up " call for action email will be sent to your account.

    I received that for many domains of mine. Just maked as spam :)

    I'm also getting some emails saying your site has been hacked & asking me to contact a lawyer. Did the same as above & didin't even bother to check internet for what it is.

    Need to get rid of these time wasters -_-

    Pretend to be a sucker and waste their scam time, the less scam time they have, the less they can scam.

    Run a system wide anti-malware scan on your computer. Most anti-virus software can do this by default but I prefer malwarebytes.
