Beware of Scam Domain Renewal Emails
We've recently become aware of a surge in fraudulent emails that claim to be related to domain name renewals. These deceptive emails are meant to scam you out of your hard-earned money or potentially steal sensitive information.
How the Scam Works:
- You receive an email stating that your domain (e.g., abc-0123.com) is about to expire or has already expired.
- This email pressures you into clicking on a link to renew your domain.
- By doing so, you are led to a scammer's website designed to steal your credit card details or login credentials.
Spotting the Red Flags:
- Check the sender's details: Genuine renewal notifications from Netz0 will come from a Netz0.com email. Always scrutinize the sender's email address.
- False company claims: The scam email may state your domain is registered with a company you've never used. Remember, you cannot renew a domain name with a different company from where it was initially registered. Your domains at Netz0 can only be renewed from our website.
- Suspicious links: All legitimate links from Netz0 will redirect you to our official website, specifically "https://netz0.com". Always hover over a link on emails to see where it points before clicking on it.
- Renew from the official site: If you want to renew your domain, always do so directly from your account area under https://netz0.com/account/domains.
- Contact us: If you ever receive a suspicious email, please forward it to our support team. We'll confirm its authenticity.
- Keep passwords secure: Remember, Netz0 staff will NEVER ask for your password or payment information via email.
Extra Security Suggestions:
- Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): It provides an extra layer of security, ensuring that even if someone knows your password, they won't be able to access your account.
- Educate yourself: Regularly read about the latest phishing and scam tactics, so you can recognize them.
- Regular updates: Keep your operating system, software, and antivirus up-to-date to prevent vulnerabilities.
In conclusion, always be cautious. Scammers are becoming smarter, but with vigilance and knowledge, you can avoid falling for their tricks. Netz0 is dedicated to your security, and together, we can combat these deceptive schemes.
Stay safe and protect your domains!
