Greetings. The email you received is a scam. It is an email unscrupulous people send out (to email addresses and/or through regular snail mail) to people with open registrations on their domain names. When you registered your domain name, your personal information is published in the Whois Public Internet Directory which can be viewed by anyone at anytime. This is required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as part of the domain name registration process. Thus, when you registered your domain name you supplied ICANN with with your name, address, email address, etc. Unfortunately, anyone can go the following website and look at any domain name: https://whois.icann.org/en

If you visit that site, and type in your domain name, you will see all of your registration information. Unfortunately scammers take this information and try to trick others into sending them money for services they either don't want, don't need or will never receive. You can delete the email from the scammer, and only trust communications you get from GoDaddy.

Many companies, like GoDaddy, will allow you to "privately" register your domain name. The registering company will, for a fee, provide alternate contact information for your listing in the WHOIS database. If you want to stop getting these scam emails, contact GoDaddy to privately register your domain name. You can read about it on their website at: https://www.godaddy.com/domainaddon/private-registration.aspx

Hope this helps,

Greetings @Ahmed-hh, As you may know the WHOIS directory of domain registrations is a public record. Regrettably, some organizations use it for misdirected "marketing" efforts that most of us recognize as SPAM.

 

One way to stay off of these lists or at least control much of the SPAM is to invoke privacy on your domains. https://www.godaddy.com/domainaddon/private-registration.aspx

 

We also know that if you were looking for meaningful SEO assistance, the first place you would look is on the GoDaddy Site under "Online Services"...or at least we hope you'd check us first.  🙂  

 

Thanks for asking, I'm sure many people without privacy receive such messages, regardless of where they are registered.

Hey @JAYGEE123

Appreciate you taking the time to join us on the community! Smiley Happy

It is unfortunate that you received this notice, but I would agree with @WebGuyDavis. It does sound like someone got a hold of your contact details from a public WhoIs look up on the domain. Sadly this is a common practice we try our best to warn new registrants about and offer privacy services on most domains to help protect you. 

You're welcome to learn more about this here

I just canceled my domain today due to this issue. I registered on a saturday, then starting Monday morning I received 7 calls from 7 different cities with 4 different spam texts in one day! Absolutely ridiculous. I then realized it was the WHOIS information that godaddy makes public...basically everything you use to register your domain (name, address, email, phone number). 1and1 offers security (replacing the information with generic information) for free. Godaddy wants $8 for it. Yeah right. Godaddy is a joke. Then i go to register an email @mydomain.com... and surprise surprise... 1and1 gives them free, godaddy makes you pay extra. Then after I cancel my domain, of course every provider I try to register with now says it's not available. I'll use 1and1 from now on, they're cheaper and I don't have to deal with a dozen scammers because they offer to keep your info private for free. I've seen other similar posts and the admin claim it's not godaddy.. they dont sell info. The admin should explain why the texts read "Congrats, You have been selected for Godaddy 70% Business Video Animation Deal. Click Here NOW to activate your deal. Expiring in 2 hrs, Hurry up" and "Urgent! Last Day for Godaddy Special 70% Off Animated Business Video Deal. Click Here to Activate this Deal Now & Boost your Sales by 1000%." I got calls today from Los Angeles, Washington DC, Colorado, New York and New Jersey! On my first business day with godaddy! What an awful company, I expect my emails will be spammed beyond belief on top of it. Thanks a lot.

I've received an email from what appears to be GoDaddy -- if it's phishing it's well done. It claims to be from the "Network Violations" team and warns that it found some malware on my hosting account and deleted it. While I have no doubt a hacker could get malware onto my site if they want it badly enough, I'm not automatically trusting this message. I've logged in to my account directly and can't find any way to check on the supposed incident number in the message. There are no messages for me under the "notifications" bell icon. The phone number provided in the email doesn't match the support phone number listed here on GoDaddy. So yeah, my paranoia is kicking in. What say you, community -- is this the sort of message that GoDaddy would really send?

Hey @N3kussa,

 

 

First let me say welcome to the community! Smiley Happy

 

We do have a "Network Violations" team, but generally if malicious content was found it may have resulted in a temporary suspension of your site till the matter has been fully resolved. Notifications they send out should reference their direct email at networkviolations@secureserver.net or their direct phone number at 480-505-8871. 

 

If you're still unsure the message was sent from us, please feel free to reach out to our regular support teams as they can still validate the account and review internal notes to confirm if any such activity had actually occurred on our end.

Hi guys! 🙂 Just curious is it ok that I'm now receiving tons of emails and even phone calls with offers to build a website for me? 😄 One guy told me that he got my number from GoDaddy so what's the system here - you got our details and share with all people who ever wants it or it's like a freelance for them to work for godaddy?? 😮

Hey @Dace

 

Welcome to the Community! Smiley Happy

 

Just to clarify, we don't give out (or sell) account details to third parties. Sounds like you may have opted out of privacy on your domain name and the persons contacting you acquired details from a public WhoIs lookup of your domain name. This is actually a common occurrence that can happen with public domains that we talk about in this Garage Article

Hi @CG,

 

I received an e-mail from "verified@godaddy.com", looking exactly like the normal GoDaddy letters, saying that "We've detected suspicious activity on your Account on 30/11/2016. For security reasons please confirm your email address." - but the big green button leads to a link beginning with "precisionea.com" so I didn't click on it. (I looked up that website, it has nothing to do with domains...)

 

Am I right that it is just a very good attempt to scam me?

 

Thx for your help

Moni

Hey @moni,

 

It unfortunately does sound like a well crafted attempt to scam you. Possible if you check the headers of the message, you might find further evidence that the "verified@godaddy.com" address sent from was actually being spoofed.

 

You do bring up a valid point not mentioned yet. Any links we send out in an email should go directly to URL that's part of godaddy.com. We don't direct you to a third party URL site.
