Phishing attacks against registrars
You may have heard that many high-profile domain registrars are being targeted by a massive phishing attack against domain owners.
We have received reports that some of those attacks are using Tucows branded emails to target some of our clients. The fraudulent emails claim that a particular domain name has been suspended and ask users to click a link. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com are being used as “From” and “Reply-to” addresses.
We are asking all clients to be extra vigilant of these fraudulent suspension notices. In case you receive an email from tucows.com.org, tucows.com.info, tucows.com.em and tucows.com.net:
– Do not click any links
– Do not reply to the email
– Do not call any phone numbers listed within the email
