SCAM ALERT: Dont let your domain name fall into the wrong hands!

We have become aware of a number of scam emails doing the rounds informing you that your domain has expired and requires payment for renewal.  Unfortunately a couple of our clients have been caught out and have made payment!
How to avoid being scammed
  • Check the sender of the email. If Artful manages your domain name/s, then our emails regarding domain name renewals are the only ones you should pay attention to!
  • If we dont, check whether the email has come from your domain name provider.
  • Confirm that the domain name in the unsolicited email/invoice matches yours exactly.  It may have one letter different.
  • Check whether your domain name is actually due for renewal.
  • If you are EVER unsure forward us a copy and we can have a look for you.
