Your request to remove your e-mail from our domain has been initiated.

Please reply with 'I Approve' to confirm your request. Click here if this request was not initiated by you.

The link in the email message goes to a fake Hostgator website in an attempt to trick the potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If the potential victims enter their Hostgator usernames and passwords on the fake website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack the victims' accounts.

Therefore, Hostgator users who have received email messages like the one above, should go directly to their email accounts instead of clicking on the links in the email messages. If there is anything wrong with their accounts, it will be shown to them after signing in.

Now, Hostgator users who were tricked by phishing scams should change their passwords immediately, and those who are unable to do so are asked to contact Hostgator for help.
