Email Phishing Scams – November 2015

Please be aware that many customers may be targeted by some malicious emails purporting to be sent from your domain registrar.

These emails are part of a large scale email phishing scams, targeted at a large number of domain registrars, not just Heart Internet (our hosting company). You may find that you have received similar emails from different registrars that you have domain names with.

These email phishing scams are commonly using the subject line “Domain [xyz] Suspension Notice ” and will prompt you to download an attachment, or reply directly to the email.

We ask that you are extra vigilant when checking your email, especially with regards to any emails asking you to click on a link, or download any attachments.

Here are some sites with stats and facts about phishing scams:
