The Squarespace Your Site is Expiring Phishing Scam

Squarespace customers who have received email messages like the one below, which claims that their website is expiring, are asked not to click on the links in them.

Squarespace customers should always go directly to and sign into their accounts from there. If there is something that they need to do, they will be notified after signing in.
