Hi guys! I'm a bit panicked. I've never signed on with Coolhandle and is the first time that I'm reading it even exists. I got an email from them saying that I owe them over $300! And they even got my name right! What is going on? How could they have gotten my information and my email address?

Please help me!

It's a scam.
Go to any site, look up the name of the owner (example: John) and chances are their email address is John @ domain .com ... and most sites actually list the real email address. Now these scammers are using automated scrappers that find your name, email address and send you an automatic email. Stay away from them.

That is super helpful!! I will definitely try to look for the name of the owner. And you're probably right about the the automated scrappers

Unfortunately there isn't much we can do to stop these practices.

Big scam, be careful.

I did some research and in some it looks legitimate and in some, it's not. So that's suspicious!

Thanks for letting me know though!

Just ignore them and don't pay it. Sounds like a big scam to me. I wouldn't trust them.

Thanks so much for letting me know! I was just trying to find out more about them. Some were positive and others not. So sounds suspicious to me.

That's a scam!
You get very recognizable emails from your hosting company, whether it is Namecheap or WA hosting or some other.

Thanks so much for dousing my fears! If it was in any way affiliated here, I thought that I would have read about it already. I don't use any other hosting website, except WA, so that's why I found it weird. I'm so relieved!

On a different note, do you think that somebody else might have signed up with my information? Should I investigate into it? Or just leave it alone?

There are a lot of this kind of scam bills going around when you didn't have a website online you would have trashed it immediately.
Just trash it!

Sure let me know what happened to it. It's too strange! Because I never signed up with them and they even had a link to direct me to MY PROFILE on their website, which i never clicked. I'm so curious now, to know what my profile looks like. Do you think that somebody else might have signed up with my information?

I doubt that , Andrew M has his fingers in a lot of pies so maybe you checked out his how to YouTube traffic or something. I know that's how I got an offer of a free website. I had forgot actually till I saw your post lol. I'm still hauling loads but I will look deeper when I get home. I don't keep much info on my phone
