Fraudulent email: Suppression de votre nom de domaine chez OVH.
Today I received a fraudulent email purporting to be from OVH and asking me to click a link to renew a domain registered with OVH.
The email really fooled me for a moment! I even got upset that OVH would send me an email requesting that I renew my domain name when it still was many months before expiration. Moreover, it bothered me that OVH would ask for substantially more funds than the price originally quoted for renewal. Sorry, OVH! You didn't do anything wrong!
I was only after I double checked both whois and also the OVH Cloud Control Panel that I realized the email was fishy. Whois showed what I expected. The OVH Cloud Control Panel had a warning about fraudulent emails.
A quick check of the email's link requested to be clicked showed that the link did not point to OVH. A quick check of the email's headers revealed complete nonsense, such as:
[ . . . ]
Received-SPF: Fail (mailfrom) identity=mailfrom; client-ip=22.214.171.124
But, wow! I almost clicked the link in the email!
Here is OVH's page on email fraud.
Old guy! Happy customer of OVH. Tom, not Oles! :-)
