Whenever I receive an email from GoDaddy that does not look like a standard GoDaddy email, it gets my guard up. Phishing and spearphishing are big problems, and I regularly see GoDaddy spoof emails. My email hosting provider catches most of them and automatically marks them as spam / junk, so I don’t see many of them in my inbox.
Earlier this week, I received an email from “GoDaddy Alerts” as the sender with an email address of email@example.com. The email was a notification that my nameservers had been updated. I had not received an email from the email address or the sender prior to receiving this one.
