There have been in circulation a growing number of scam emails claiming to be from your domain registrar. The scam email will usually have an attached bill asking you to renew your domain registration. There may be slight differences in the invoice that the scammer hopes you won’t notice in order to extort money from you. These scams may also arrive in paper form by post.
If in doubt as to the authenticity of the email – get in contact with your domain registrar just to confirm if your domain is indeed up for renewal. But generally you should be able to tell if it is a scam email by the following points:
Never reply to or click on any links that these bogus emails contain and if in doubt always check your records for your domain documentation or the original email from your domain registrar.
