Status Alert: Your Account Contains More Than 9740 Directories – Godaddy Scam Alert

Status Alert: Your Account Contains More Than 9740 Directories - Godaddy Scam Alert Have you too got a message like this Status Alert: Your Account Contains More Than 9740 Directories or any other number of figures regarding your Godaddy account? Do you have a friend who has an account on Godaddy? I would strongly recommend that you read this post entirely and too share it with those who have Godaddy accounts since it will help you to find the fact about these kind of mails you may have gotten or soon to get.

I personally had never thought of hackers targeting my other account on a Giant provider like Godaddy but from I received in an email about my account, I got to know of the possibility for it to happen although I never ave out my information to those phishing sites.

The fact is that I too dont know why this time round they targeted me or why you might be the target but am sure its another way to steal others information for to make use of their accounts – a pure scam activity. The mail I got read like you see below.

Subject : Status Alert: Your account contains more than 9740 directories.

From : GoDaddy <alert@godaddy.com>
To: xxxxx@xxx.com

When I looked at the above email closely and compare it with other emails got from Godaddy, I knew that this was pure scam and which happened when I attempted to visit the above link as I was redirected to some page which as of now is deleted (guess the site had been compromised like it does happen on so many sites).

Firstly, Godaddy has never referred to me as a valued customer as they do it using my registered user names.
Secondly, I don’t have any active domain on Godaddy hosted by them.
Thirdly, the redirected to page went outside Godaddy site.
Fourthly, the email was vague as it was a text as opposed to what Godaddy sends to customers.
Fifthly, my Godaddy account status showed no alerts.

Oh, so many things which I can’t mention……..

The fact is that an email like that any email you get like the above is scam and for phishing purposes. It is important to always use the Account status alert to know issues with your account any time you get mails supposedly to be from your service provider like Godaddy.

  4. Your godaddy account is potential risk to server. It contains more than 4384 directories. Creating a tmp seperate folder will help. When I visit the link, it take me to an image page where am asked to input my godaddy account and password. This is pure phishing activity help Godaddy. I enter my log in and my account is no access next few minutes. I hate this scam. I thought it was a real but am foolish to this extent. Keep sharing this.

  5. Your account contains more than 937 directories and may pose a potential performance risk to our servers is the message I got. Yes I have been hosting with Godaddy long ago and never seen such message. I was worried at first but now am okay since I saw this post. I have shared it so my friends too can stay alert. This is bad and Godaddy should do something.
