Today we started getting reports of a new fraudulent invoice scam. These invoices come from a company called "WebsiteBackup" and look legitimate. They are not valid invoices and you should not pay them. This image is a sample.

The scammers seem to be targeting domain owners. Unlike other scams with similar targets, this does not seem to threaten your ownership of the domain. If you've already sent a check or attempted to pay, please contact your bank.

If you ever have doubts about the legitimacy of an invoice or email having to do with technology, please do not hesitate to run it by us. I would rather answer fifty emails about an invoice than go through one stolen domain recovery.
