I want to share a warning that I received from a reader about an apparent phishing email that seems to be targeting domain names registered at Enom. The domain name that was used has Enom in it, but it was not Enom.com.
The person who reported the email to me said, “I received 4 today for different domains. All CCC,com domains.” This may indicate that the person is targeting a specific type of domain name, so be on the lookout!
Phishing emails are dangerous because they can lead to stolen domain names. They tend to look like authentic emails from a domain registrar, and this leads to people clicking on them and entering information that would likely compromise their accounts. Domain thieves can then steal the domain names more easily.
I recommend that you use two factor authentication at your domain registrar and not click on any links within emails to ensure that you don’t fall prey to a phishing attempt. I also recommend reporting phishing attempts to the domain registrar so they can be aware of these phishing attempts.
Thank you to Richard for sharing this warning with me. The email he received is below, with the verification code and domain name removed from the email:
