I got this interesting email today from someone claiming to be from Godaddy billing department but with a different number that happens to be a market expansion line for the same area code as Godaddy.
According to a bunch of comments on 800notes.com its obviously a scam where they try to phish your godaddy account and get your credit card info. So I decided to have a little fun with them. Unfortunately I didn’t think I could pull it off and did it on a whim so I didn’t get it recorded, but here’s the general transcript.
<THEM> Thank you for calling billing this is Keith how may I help you?
<ME> Hi, I got an email from Matthew saying my account has expired and now my website goes to some Godaddy page whats going on?
<THEM> No problem I can help you out with that. What’s your customer number and I’ll look up your information.
<ME> Umm I don’t know my customer number. How would I find that? Should I talk to Matthew he’s the one who emailed me he’ll probably have it.
<THEM> Unfortunately Matthew is not available but I can still help you out. What’s the email address on the account. I can find your customer number from that.
<THEM> Okay got it. It looks like your account has expired. What is your name and the domain you got the email about?
<ME> James and its makemoniesonline.com (spelled it out for him). How did it expire? I thought it wasn’t supposed to expire for another month or so! Now its gone and my website is going to some Godaddy page.
<THEM> Yes your domain doesn’t expire until April but its probably a problem with the hosting.
<ME> My hosting? Oh no I thought my hosting was good. Does my website work for you? I just get a godaddy page.
<THEM> Yep I just get the godaddy page to.
<ME> You sure?
