Beware of "Godaddy Workspace Support Center" Phishing Scams

Would you share this article with others?

Godaddy users who have received emails claiming that their Workspace accounts have been limited and will be disconnected are asked not to click on the links in them. They should also not follow instructions in emails which claim their accounts have exceeded quota or emails are on hold. This is because cybercriminals are sending out fake or phishing Godaddy Workspace emails with links that go to fake websites that steal Godaddy account usernames and passwords (credentials). And, once the cybercriminals have received the stolen credentials, they will use it to gain access to the accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.

Dear,

This is a courtesy notice from Admin Team, your account has been limited and will be disconnected after 48 hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Instead of clicking on a link to sign into their Godaddy Workspace accounts, Workspace users should always go directly to www.godaddy.com to sign into their accounts. Once they have signed into their accounts, they will be alerted to important changes or notifications, if there are any.

For Godaddy Workspace users who have already been tricked by the scam or think they may have been, are asked to change their Godaddy account passwords immediately and contact Godday Technical support for help.
