Domain holders don't fall victim to this email scam
There is yet another form of email scam targeting domain name owners seeking to have them complete 'search registration' in order for their websites to be indexed by major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo. The email usually comes with the title: Important: Complete Search Engine Registration for your domain yourdomain.com - where yourdomain.com is your actual domain name.
Given how the email has been addressed, it might fool some to think it is genuine. Information such as your name and email address can be publicly accessed by anyone who can simply look up the WHOIS information for your particular domain.
Below is a sample of the scam email.
