Workspace E-Mail Looks Shady - Is It Real?

Mon., 08/01/2016 - Good morning. I've been receiving the following e-mails from someone named '' The very FIRST problem w/this address are the two 'N's in Adminn; no such word. That's a true sign of a SCAM / PHISHING EXPEDITION. But not at my expense, buddy.


Following is the text of this mail; fortunately, all of my servers send it to Spam off the bat, but until I go and clean out mail from the server, it's unnoticed. This time, there were a lot of them so I started to ask GD until I noticed the name was incorrect.


Here's the body of the message:

From: Admin []

Sent: Thursday, July 14, 2016 4:11 PM

To: Recipients Subject: [SPAM]

Hello @MsJSB


You would be right in saying that email isn't real, and is a Phishing attempt to get your password to compromise the account. What is recommend is to mark that email as Spam so that the GoDaddy Admins will take a look over it and handle that email within the system accordingly. 


All of their emails that GoDaddy sends will come from or But like what you've done here, it never hurts to ask if something is legitimate or not before moving forward.
