Scams seem to get more sophisticated each day?
This one looked genuine, as it came from the hosting company I use.
- The email address they sent to isn’t registered with them
- There was no notification in the email that is registered with them
- The sending email is subtly altered “vip-“
- When I logged into my dashboard using clean credentials, unsurprisingly there are no invoices due for payment
Its quite convincing though – and credit to the scammers for identifying which web host I use and back spoofing.
Always be very careful on line, and check and double check emails. This one almost caught me.
