Your are busy running your business and don’t have time to double check everything and you get an email like I got today.
It starts like this
“Notice#: 491343 Date: 2021-01-20 YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION TO THIS MESSAGE IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! YOUR DOMAIN xxxx dot com WILL BE TERMINATED WITHIN 24 HOUR”
and then it is deliberately long and technical designed to make you speed read it.
“This purchase expiration notification xxxx .com advises you about the submission expiration of domain”
you get to
“CLICK HERE FOR SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT:”
You don’t want to loose your domain, job done.
Payment made for another year!
Not quite, you read the small print and found you just bought and e-book.
“from the processing department from the processing department to purchase our e-book submission.”
Oops, now you waste an hour on the phone to your card company and they say well you purchased it – your fault.
