MAKE IT MODERN
I received an email from Go Daddy earlier today, which informed me that numerous failed login attempts have been detected on my account and that I need to verify my information to ensure account security. It sounded like Go Daddy really cares about my account security and that I should do as the email instructed. Except the email message is not from Go Daddy -- it's a phishing email.
For a couple of months now, I've been getting spam messages that offer to sell me .COM versions of domain names that I own. I imagine these guys scan the drop lists for .COM domains that already registered in other TLDs, register these domains, and email the owners of the domain name in other TLDs.
I've heard people saying that if you are creating an AdSense sniper site (or even affiliate sniper site), you're better off not using Google Analytics. So I looked around for an alternative, free analytics program and found Piwik.
I saw a credit card charge for $72 from ON ONLINE #433. It looked suspicious so I decided to look into it.
May is almost over and I thought it would be the first month in a long time when I didn't encounter a scammer. But I was wrong. Just a few minutes ago, somebody from the DigitalPoint forums tried to scam me of five domains with PageRank worth a few hundred dollars. Good thing I always remember my (expensive) lessons from previous scams -- this scammer never had a chance.
HostGator charges $15 for restoring website backups. They asked me to confirm that I wanted them to perform the restore, but they never told me that they will charge $15. Fair or not?
