    Just a heads up to anyone with domains on godaddy - I have received 2 calls today form a blocked number - a company that claims they are "domain control authority" - and that they need you to verify your godaddy login details for compliance lol - hopefully nobody is that stupid to give out his or her details - BUT just wanted to throw the warning out there! Amazing how many shitty scams are out there.

    I don't give out any type of information like that over the phone unless verified reps of the company show up at my doorstep. It's amazing some people give out such critical info over the phone these days. Morons.

    Thanks NetMoney1 for sharing. I hope no one is gullible enough to give out any of their information over the phone especially when dealing with information for personal accounts. Thanks again for sharing and letting everyone know.

    By the way, if anyone ever gets a call from a company over the phone, be sure to ask them questions to verify that they are who they claim to be. No company would ask you for your account password over the phone so if you ever receive that question, immediately end the conversation with them.

    As long as scammers are at it then it's still working for them and people fall for it.
