Phishing Scam Warning (Joe Miller from DomainWorld)

As I just had one of these myself I figured this scam must be doing the rounds at the moment.. the fact the scammers think a web designer & developer is stupid enough to fall for it astounds me.. it really does.. I often say ‘The stupid it BURNS!’ and so today on Christmas Eve a day when I should be relaxing and eating far too much chocolate I find myself doing a blog post instead!

So via my contact form (Small Rant : I would like to point out he picked the wrong option on the drop down as this email has nothing to do with maintenance & support services) The scumbag apparently called ‘Joe Miller’ has sent me this:

Well I’m sorry Mr Joe Miller, but

1) I didnt register my domain with your company so NOPE,

also

2) you would email me via the admin/billing contact address for said domain not via a contact form on my website so again NOPE

and last but not least

3) why are your payment links directing me to yourdomainbone.xyz thats another NOPE

If you get this please for THE LOVE OF TALOS (I’ve been playing skyrim again) DON’T CLICK THE LINK DON’T FALL FOR A SCAMMER THIS STUPID

And also have a Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year Everyone
