Domain Service Notice Scam Email

I receive one of these “Domain Service Notice” spam emails every once in awhile. They are really annoying because they look official, but they don’t actually mean anything. It originated from the email address domain_services@ymail.com. Basically they want you to pay up to $499 to submit your site to search engines. Wow, that’s something us webmasters can do ourselves in a couple of clicks.

I definitely get a kick out of how this spam email was written (I obviously replaced my personal details with X’s below). I hope nobody actually falls for this and pays such a ridiculous price for just search engine submissions. Save your money!
