To Click... or no?
The following is geek stuff. Oh how I (strangely) miss geek talk.
I don't understand. I am attempting to transfer my domain registration from NetSol to a more competitively priced option, and in an attempt to keep me as their customer, they have (in addition to locking my account to make transfer harder) sent me an email saying
Attention: Kevin Cameron Re: Transfer of BASTISH.NET
We received notification on April 18, 2006 7:01:29 AM EDT that you have requested to transfer to another domain name registrar. If you would like to proceed with this transfer you do not need to respond to this message. If you wish to cancel the transfer please contact us before April 22, 2006 7:01:29 AM EDT by visiting our secure website https://registrar-transfers.com/?h=e2a327bXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
The LAST thing I want to do is use a link supposedly from NetSol that does not even go to the NetSol.com domain. - I get enough emails from fake netsol people asking me "confirm my login credentials". Who thought of the idea to use a non-netsol domain for this?
Fire that person.
- no wait, I am trying to be a kinder, gentler Kevin. First ask them why they did it, consider their answer, and move them to the bottom of the promotion list.
Of course, maybe this really is some malicious thief. If that is the case, NetSol has a security problem because this mail showed up within an hour after attempting to transfer my domain.
