WARNING: Network Solutions Phishing Scam

by Adam Strong in Categories: Miscellaneous

Fast on the heels of the recent Enom phishing scam, another phishing attack attempting to con domain name registrants into providing their customer information is under way. Network Solutions (NSI) domain customers are the target this time.  The spam email messages being sent out warn the user of their domain expiring.  Current reports show that the domain name is being used and disguises itself as a site that looks identical to  As the public and internet providers become aware of the abuses, both the Enom and NSI phishing attackers are adapting to these reports by changing the domain name addresses they use.  See full phishing email after the link.

Dear Network Solutions Customer,

We recently notified you that the registration period for your Network
Solutions domain name had expired. As a benefit of having previously
registered a domain name(s) with Network Solutions, you are eligible to
receive a percentage of the net proceeds that were generated from the
renewal and transfer of the domain name you chose not to renew. Since you
have chosen not to renew the domain name listed below during the
applicable grace period, we were successful in securing a backorder for
this domain name on your behalf and it has been transferred to another
party in accordance with the Service Agreement.

Renew your domain now –

You must click on the following link, enter your domain name, and confirm
your contact information in order to claim these funds. If your contact
information is not correct, you must enter Account Manager and make the
appropriate changes prior to clicking “submit” from the confirmation
screen. If you do not do this, you will be confirming inaccurate
information and will not receive any payment. Checks will only be made
payable and mailed to the Account Holder of record.
