I have multiple websites and I now get four or five similar communications per week. The wording is identical each time other than the domain mentioned. And quite frankly, I am sick to death of them!
I remember the very first time I got one of these; I really thought that it was from my hosting company and that I had neglected to renew the domain. Note the key phrase ” domain registration,” and how many times it is repeated. It sounds like it’s from a hosting company.
And that, of course, is probably exactly what I was supposed to think. Unfortunately for them, I went to my client panel instead of clicking on their link and lo and behold… nothing had expired!
I wonder how many people though, do click on the link? If they’re inexperienced this would be scary. There must be enough who do, or else this type of disingenuous spam would have died a death long ago.
“This important expiration notification” is obviously meant to trigger a knee-jerk panic reaction and remembering the initial panic I felt in my inexperienced days I can only say I despise all involved in this spamming.
If you receive one of these read it closely! The key phrase is “the expiration notice of your domain registration for xxxxxxx.com search engine optimization submission.” And that, of course, is probably what stops this misleading email from being illegal.
At the bottom it says “You have received this message because you elected to receive notification.” No, I didn’t. And neither did you! Incidentally, I would NOT click on their “Unlike” link.
Spam of the first order. If you have a legal entity in your country you can report them to, do so!
