    Did anyone else get contacted from this email address? They are claiming to be ICANN and need me to verify contact info.

    Is it legit?

    if you search the address it seems to be associated with a number of registrars in the EU but i don't know if i would trust it.

    I didn't get that email, albeit I kinda wonder...No reply @?

    Still, good to be aware of such things.

    Maybe it's a way of seeing if the email bounces back or not to update their spam database.

    You are required to do nothing; though it appears that you are, because the bounce back is what they want for an unsubscription in order to keep their IP's clean the next time they blast out for sale / other real scams.

    Haven't gotten any from this email, but got verification checks from others. They are more legit looking with the body (nothing required, following policy, etc.).

    First of all, ICANN never send any email directly to client as their white lebal policy. Only registrar of domain can contact to client on any verification. its all except .US domain where Nuestar INC which manages .US extention contacts client for verification.

    Update:

    This was actually an email verification process from Moniker. I ignored it and they put my domains in client hold!

    After clicking the link to verify my info, the domains came out of client hold.

    Some domains do require verification, it's particularly prominent in the UK right now.

    I got this email today from moniker for a domain I bought from snapnames

    It doesn't say it's from moniker and the email verification domain Whois doesn't show proper info.

    This is a lousy job at verification and letting customers know who they are.
