Be on the Alert if you get a similar email from your domain registrar.

The following is an email I received today.

This is a phishing  email  and if you get it  then  DO NOT click on the link.

by placing your mouse over the link you will see added  at the end of  the site url is the following

However they could be using  numerouse  domains so be carefull if the url ends  with ( being  some other domain name) then report it.

Network solutions are aware of it and have a warning  on their support page that they and several other  domain registrars clients are under attack.

If you get one send it to the appropriate registrar so they can get their legal people on to it to get the domain closed down


Dear Network Solutions® Customer,

On Fri, 31 Oct 2008 10:24:04 -0300 we received a third party complaint of invalid domain contact information in the Whois database for this domain. Whenever we receive a complaint, we are required by ICANN regulations to initiate an investigation as to whether the contact data displaying in the Whois database is valid data or not. If we find that there is invalid or missing data, we contact both the registrant and the account holder and inform them to update the information.

Please note: ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) regulations state that the WHOIS Administrative Contact may initiate and approve domain name registration transfers from your Network Solutions account to other Registrars. If you are not listed as the WHOIS Administrative Contact a transfer can occur without your knowledge if Domain Protect is not enabled for the domain name registrations listed above.

To change the WHOIS Administrative Contact Information for any of your domains, please login to Account Manager:

   1. Log in to Account Manager at: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx url removed for safety
   2. Click on the "Profile & Accounts" tab in the left navigation menu to be taken to a page listing your account details.
   3. Click on "Accounts" and select the account you wish to edit.
   4. Click "View/Edit WHOIS Contacts" to make your updates.

If you believe someone requested this change without your consent, please contact Customer Service.

If you would like to order additional services or to update your account, please visit us online.

Thank you for choosing Network Solutions. We are committed to providing you with the solutions, services, and support to help you succeed online.

Thanks, BJ... This is a new attempt, but like those before it it has all of the marks to look out for, especially when you are familiar with ICANN security protocols-- A lot of folks, don't even know what a real ICANN missive looks like and that allows the scammers to "socially engineer" their emails to trap the unwary...
