SPAM: yourdomain.com Final Extension
Another domain renewal scam is circulating this week.
The format is the same as usual - danger, danger danger, about to expire, your domain, final warning etc.
Then right at the bottom it says something like:
Failure to make payment may result in account closing (making it difficult for your customers and your friends to locate you, using search engines on the web).
So it is actually a service to submit you to search engines.
Well there is only really one search engine unfortunately, although Ecosia's plan is a good one, so there is no need to pay someone to submit your pages. Google are quite capable of finding you themselves.
The email arrives as:
- ACT IMMEDIATELY -
