Fake GoDaddy Order Confirmation Email Scam ($357)

I started receiving these fake GoDaddy order confirmation emails.  Kind of scared me because I knew a couple of my domains needed to be renewed this year.  The email looks legit, it goes back to GoDaddy but then I scrolled over the links.  A scam, the links go to another site.  No, I did not click the link, I am a Linux user so I know better. 🙂  Oh, check the footer, it is copyrighted for 2008, not 2010.

Users beware!!!  For your safety, I broke most of the links.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Godaddy fakes – I received three of these this morning and I know I do not have any domains held at godaddy.
    Cheers

    • They really look genuine didn’t they? I was worried since my credit card was on their file but once I hovered over the links, I knew what was up. 🙂

  • Nici

    I have also received 9 of these during this morning and was really worried about what is going to happen to my credit card! Thank god is just a damn spam!

  • Yeah I’ve been receiving these emails today as well
