    Today I received exactly the bogus email you are talking about. I did not click on the click. I called Inmotion Hosting and verified that they did NOT send the email. The bogus email concerned the domain: "expunge55.com". When I reported the bogus email to Inmotion Hosting, I was told there wasn't really much they could do other than take the report.

    It looked like this except it gave the actual domain address and my name. I also noted a sender address: "melbourneit.com.au.org" designed to make it look like it really came from Melbourne IT.
