Re: Double check your domain contact info email

As near as I can tell that seems like a legitimate email @Dan1an but I'm not really in the habit of calling balls and strikes when it comes to phishing emails. Basically I'm saying don't trust my view, trust your own. When it comes to email and text links I typically advise a few tips as best practice. 

  1. Never Click on Hyperlinks in Email
  2. Pay Attention to Inconsistencies in Links and Domain Names
  3. Never Enter Sensitive Information in a Pop Up Window
  4. Question Emails Requesting Login Credentials, Payment Information or Other Sensitive Information
  5. Educate yourself on Phishing Attacks
  6. Note Emails Containing Spelling Mistakes
  7. Keep Antivirus Protection Current
  8. Be Wary of Suspicious Attachments
  9. Pay Attention to Inconsistencies in Email Addresses
  10. Verify HTTPS on Address Bar

There is a still prudent GoDaddy Garage article Email Phishing: Think before you link. Seems like these guys are getting more convincing everyday. I hope that helps?

 

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
