Email scam

Last Update: May 29, 2016

Beware of an email scam going around.

I am surprised with level of details which I am sure get passed on by godaddy/namecheap when you register domain name.

I am sure that those guys get a lot of people with those emails... In total, I have around 15 domains right now... I've gotten those emails on almost all the ones that I don't have Privacy set..

But this is from a website with privacy set already.

Was there any period of time when domain privacy had not been put into effect for the domain? (It wouldn't have taken scammers very long at all to get the information.)

No. Gone to the source. It has been generated by a website selling cheap traffic

hmm.. I checked.. it is privacy set... godaddy registered and hosted here. I haven't checked the whole site, but so far, I don't see your email displayed.. only your author profile.
Amazing the time spent on sending emails of that type... Guess they must make some money on it.

I doubt that there's really much time involved -- bots scan for the information and send out the scare letters. They're all pretty much the same boilerplate verbiage.
