    Definite scam. Received this today about a domain that we have parked at the moment. No website, email. Never click on a link for an account from anyone.

    If anybody is interested I have contacted the domain registrars to see if they reply ? Message below:

    Hi Namesilo, a domain recently registered with your company is sending out Spam/Phishing emails which I assume are up to no good. I am sure that the good name of NameSilo does not want to be tarnished with this reputation, so in your own interests I should take the appropriate action necessary. Regards Darren.
    The emails that many people are receiving are as follows:

    Yup, i also got that email today. The giveaways for me where:

    1: It was not sent to abuse@, postmaster@ or any other standard "administrator" email
    2: "...within 24 hours otherwise your domain will be suspended permanently"
    3: "There is also possibility of legal action depend on severity and persistence of your abuse case"

    E-mail server missuse happens all the time and most of the times it's not the owner's fault. Threatening for permanent suspension and/or legal action is like trying to sue the car manufacturers for all the alcohol related accidents in highways. Real world example: I doubt you could pursue legal action against any IoT company Even if they are partially responsible for something as destructive as Mirai botnet's attack on dyn

    Smells like a scam with garlic sauce. Also, like those Indian calls I used to get weekly about my windows computer sending bad reports. They may be onto the mac users now; look out!

    1.) Thanks to U guys for finding quick answer to Q. what this mail (received same) is about!
    (Just registered to express this)

    2.) Received exact same mail from:
    Return-Path: <finley_scott-("myemail")[email protected]>
    Received: from mail.domaincop.net ([37.61.222.140]

    3.) Could not resolve IP 37.61.222.140 (at least not on who.is)

    4.) Noticed that "domaincop.net" is too nice a domain to waste on scam?

    5.) Noticed: Not only is Domain in Question just parked but also on "Private Registration" / Domain by Proxy with Godaddy. (No point asking them - since most likely the provider with the most lousy service on the net?)
    So: How on earth did these scammers find my (correct) email-address?

    Needless to say: Did not click on any of the links.... ;)

    Once again: Thanks to all for sharing!

    I actually got a call a few months back saying that they were doing random upgrades for lucky windows users around the globe and they will upgrade my windows 10 to a limited edition platinum version, with a host of upgraded features.

    I asked him what he is wearing and if he can talk dirty to me..... hahahah that was the end of the call. ..lol

    Thats a nice idea for a phone APP..... have loads of pre-recorded voice overs. Then you can add phone numbers to the "blacklists" in different groups... so when they phone you then they get directed to the recorded message for that group...lol

    Like if these Microsoft guys phone it should redirect to a Pre-recorded message saying something like you have reach the Microsoft special investigations team in collaboration with Interpol this call is being tracked, expect a visit from us soon. :laugh:

    Yep, I think these spammers realize that when using a decent domain name, like a good .net domain would have a better open rate compared to a [email protected] cheap TLD. It also kinda makes them look a bit more credible...I mean domaincop.net looks like a decent domain name..

    I had a really bad spam attack through one of my names recently.

    This was handled by my host whilst I was asleep. I gather he redirected the name servers and blocked some of the inbound IPs. He alerted me to the problem in the morning. At no time was the domain name or registration involved, and the problem was resolved before any complaints could have made it through the domain name system.

    This must be some sort of scam - it doesn't gel with the way the reputable Internet works.

    Right from the start! ....which is why.....

    But then again, I do have some serious doubts about Godaddy anyway. Lots of reasons for that. But I dont understand enough about many details to "nail them". ....Time to move elsewhere? Yes! Once I find a decent hosting-provider with at least some "customer service" deserving to be called that.

    in this age, its always best to keep a copy of backup of all of your data.. and avoid any links and/or any suspicious email, double check the email address. It has been my practice from around 8 years now.
    these kind of email can be v v dangerous for your data and security information. you must always have an updated antivirus with proper updates to your OS...
