    Hello BHW,

    Today I got an email from Godaddy. Take a look at the email Photo:

    [​IMG]

    When I click on the link its sent me to http://krepkon.ru/about/faq/enter.php domain. I tried with a fake info, its showing the same dashbord of godaddy.

    Its Same to Godaddy Log In Page. Its A Phishing Page, Dont put there your real info. Be careful.

    I love these emails when you're that much of a valued customer that they can't even put in your fucking name.
    Thanks for the heads up though OP, this will save a lot of people heartache.

    it's nice of you to notify us, but why do you click on a link in an email which is landed in your spam folder? it's like asking for trouble

    I hate GoDaddy but this looks like email spoofing to me. A company the size of GoDaddy is not
    messing around with tactics like this.

    Yes, I already Did.

    I thought its really from Godaddy. Some times I got my Utility Bills & Service Related emails in Spam Box, But they really not Spam. Thats why I Thought its godaddy email and clicked on that link.
