Scam Alert – Fake 123-reg email alerts

Please note that there is an email going around to all 123-reg.co.uk customers stating that their domain name has expired and to renew it by clicking a link within the email.

If you receive these please note that your domain name hasn’t expired and you SHOULD NOT click any of the links or proceed to payments via this email, please just delete the email.

Things to look for within the email

Example of the email:

1. From: “123-reg.co.uk” <123-reg@yourdomainname.co.uk>
2. The link they request you to click is spoofed

The email displays:

To renew your domain, please go to the following link :
https//123-reg.co.uk/?order/rs/id=yourdomain.com/renew=XXXXXXXXX

Which actually resolves to a different website and NOT 123-reg.co.uk.

Please stay vigilant and safe!
