i have used **** to blank out the password.
I have never heard of this company or had any dealings with them,

and guess what the URL that spamcop gives the abuse email for just produces a blank time out error and the same goes for the nameserver URL from a whois record

Thanks for the heads up.

I also get similar emails. I think a lot of these emails are a result of the old leaked WHMCS.com database. This was many years ago now but we are still seeing this emails.

There are many such types of email. The key way of dealing with these types of emails is just ignoring them. They mostly make the username out of your email address.

Sometimes when I get a phishing email, I go to the website and write all sorts of rubish on the input text boxes. This is my confession bear :agree:

Thank for your information, Added to blacklist.

I got scared when I heard "spam" word. My hosting provider is very strict.

I don't think your provider is any stricter than any other provider, although i just have one of my backup servers with your provider, so dont run any clients on the server

Never seen an email like that. More of the classic "we tried calling you to update your banking info. Please reply with back accounts number, active card numbers, updated address, your fears,...." :)

Crazy, thanks for the heads up

I don't know if you are allow to post the IP addresses here, - maybe a Mod can confirm - as I think it would help other members, just in case others are targeted.
