    Dear my_name,
    
    This notification is being sent to you as a contractual requirement of the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) WHOIS policy. When you registered your domain with us, you agreed to keep your contact information in Account Manager current, and WHOIS policy mandates that we ask you to verify and/or update this information periodically. Further, ICANN requires us to remind you that providing inaccurate or dated contact information may be grounds for domain name cancellation. 
    To review your current account information:
    1.    Go to the Whois Lookup
    2.    Type your domain name in the WHOIS search box, and click the "Find It" button to display your domain name registration. 
    If your WHOIS information has changed, or is inaccurate, please log in to Account Manager to make any necessary updates. If your information is correct, you do not need to take any action.
    Remember, if you use Private Registration, you are still required to maintain accurate contact information within Account Manager. You may review the ICANN policy here. 
    Thank you for your attention to this important ICANN-required message, and thanks for being a Register.com customer.

    Nah, I've gotten these from many registrars before, even when my info was correct. They are just letting you know that you are supposed to.

    Now, I'm not recommending you just ignore it and violate a contract, because you should never violate any agreement you've made. But from what I've seen, they don't take it too seriously or verify that it's current.

    All registrars send these out. It's required by ICANN but is just a formality, nothing to be worried about.

    I think all my domains have fake whois records because I don't want to get spam or mail from randomers.. Has anyone actually had a problem with this before? I haven't and I've had fake info for years

    I think the worst case scenario is they suspend your domains and tell you to put correct info in. I imagine that'd only happen if their systems somehow detected bogus info or someone reported you.
