Domain Scam – info@shuiaknow.icu

We received a email regarding one of our customers domain name was expiring. The email had a “secure” link to make a payment. At first the email appeared legit, but it was from a domain company we recognized. The email said my “Domain SEO” was going to expire. What is a “Domain SEO”?

This alone set off an alarm to us. The domain was registered with SiteGround and in SiteGround the domain didn’t expire until 2022. This was a scam. We looked at the return address for the email “info@shuiaknow.icu“. The domain “shuiaknow.icu” doesn’t exist. Maybe we should send them an email telling them their domain expired.

Web Design Scam

We have received a couple of emails over the past couple of years where someone is looking for a website to be built or redesigned. They are looking for quotes. For the most part it seems like a normal-ish inquiry. They often are responsive to emails.

I sent the a quote which was more than their budget and they were okay with it, but then they started to ask about Bank information. What the bank was that was going to process her credit card. Not information I need to give out at this point. Then things get really funky.

She wanted me to accept her credit card payment, but needed me to pay her designer almost half and keep the balance for the deposit we require with a $50 tip. That isn’t how things work. I told the we can’t do that, and decided to warn others before you waste your time. If you get an email from “MellisaJavon23@gmail.com” don’t even reply.
