As the owner of numerous domains, I get this type of email quite frequently regarding domains that are nearing expiration.
Scammers like the people who send this email prey on the ignorance of many website owners who don’t know that you really don’t even need to submit your sites to search engines anymore.
And as a double scam, they make this look like you would actually be renewing your domain if you fall for this crap.
Read the email below and remember not to fall for it if a similar con ever hits your inbox.
