Domain Renewal Scam

Scam

Many (almost all of us) that have websites and .com domain names and haven’t chosen to use domain privacy will regularly get scam messages like this one, trying to fool us into thinking we have to pay these scammers to renew our domain name.

They deliberately make it look & sound like a genuine domain renewal and hope that you won’t look carefully at the small print and see it is an SEO scam. Don’t pay it and dump it in the bin.

The email looks like
