Bogus email claiming to be GoDaddy

Seeing as I can't actually get in contact with GoDaddy I'm posting this here.

 

I've just received an email claiming to be from GoDaddy (GoDaddy Operating Company, LLC <postmaster@ichimenkai.jp>) 

The message made me panic thinking 1) someone had hacked my account and changed details, 2) that GoDaddy had blocked my account for some reason.

I would have clicked the link to check if I hadn't noticed at the last moment that it wasn't a GoDaddy email address that it was sent from and that it was actually sent to my website info email (I forward all website email to my personal account).

I hovered over the link and it has hidden (publicdefib.tv/gl_paper_lantern-filemanager) so I can only assume that if you do click the link it will take you to GoDaddy with a keylogger so they can get your details.

 

GoDaddy should have somewhere that we can easily report bogus emails and to let customers know that there is a scam going about.Bogus email.PNG
