Phishing targeting customers

We’ve recently become aware of a phishing scheme targeting our customers. Our domain registrations are provided through Tucows, Inc, and we’ve had reports from customers about fraudulent messages going out.

If you receive one of these messages, please delete it, do not follow any links and do not provide any information.

Feel free to contact our support department if you have any concerns.

Legitimate messages about reported abuse will always use our ticket system, and you’ll be able to view the ticket online. We will not ask you to visit a third party site for information.

An example message sent to our own address is below:

Dear Dave Warren,

The Domain Name HIREAHIT.COM have been suspended for violation of the TUCOWS, INC. Abuse Policy.

Multiple warnings were sent by TUCOWS, INC. Spam and Abuse Department to give you an opportunity to address the complaints we have received.

We did not receive a reply from you to these email warnings so we then attempted to contact you via telephone.

We had no choice but to suspend your domain name when you did not respond to our attempts to contact you.

Click here and download a copy of complaints we have received.

Please contact us for additional information regarding this notification.

Sincerely,

TUCOWS, INC.
