I want to share a poorly crafted GoDaddy phising email I just received. Be aware of it and be sure not to click any of the links. It appears to me that the embedded link is to goldldaddy.com (as you can see in the image above when I hover over the link). GoDaddy will always use your name in the Dear section, although someone could very easily specifically target you.
Always hover over any links before clicking, and if you have any doubts that it’s real, forward the email on to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subject: Important ICANN Notice Regardings Your Domain Name(s)
it is that time of year again. ICANN(the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) annually requires that all accredited registrars (like GoDaddy.com) ask their domain administrators/registrants to review domain name contact data, and make any changes necessary to ensure accuracy. According to our records you are the ADMINISTRATIVE CONTACT for one or more domains registered at GoDaddy.com, Inc. as of Jan 1st, 2011.
To review/update your Account data, simply:
+ Login to https://dcc.godaddy.com/ default.aspx?isc=ICANN0908a& amp;ci=8987
+ You will be taken to a landing page and asked to enter your account information
Please take a look that your account and domain information is up to date.
If, however, your domain contact information is inaccurate, you must correct it. (Under ICANN rules and the terms of your registration agreement, providing false contact information can be grounds for domain name cancellation.) To review the ICANN policy, visit:http://www.icann.org/ whois/wdrp-registrant-faq.htm
Should you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com or call our customer support line at (480) 505-8877.
Thanks for your attention and thank you for being a GoDaddy.com, Inc. customer.
