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.,, and are being used as “From” and “Reply-to” addresses.

– Do not click any links
