SiteLock Fake Malware Email.

Submitted by Mike on Sun, 12/23/2018 - 00:22

Recently I got these fake Malware emails for some parked domain names I own, they literally have no content on them or have a static page.  The most disturbing part is the only contact details in these emails go to legit phone numbers of the company Sitelock. I tried to contact them to let them know about the fake Malware email but gave up after being left on hold for 50 mins. Feel free to ignore the emails like I did, I really hope they are not engaging in unethical business practices.
