Beware of this ICANN Scam
I received an email from what appeared to be ICANN the other day. For a split second, I thought it might have been legit, but I check everything before responding to any emails.
I went to ICANN's official website and they gave me an email address to send the email. After a couple of hours ICANN responded that they don't send emails directly to website owners. They send any requests and information to our Registrars like GoDaddy, Namecheap, etc. This is something I knew, but you never know when rules change and the scammers were playing up cleverly on the new GDPR rules.
Moral of the story, if you get one of these emails, it's probably safe to disregard it, but just in case you want to follow up, send it to ICANN, your registrar, or both.
Let's keep each other safe online!
