A number of readers (and myself included) have received an email claiming to be from GoDaddy. The email is grammatically correct, and appears quite genuine. The subject is "GoDaddy.com Order Confirmation" and interestingly the images within the HTML are pulled from imagesak.godaddy.com, excepting one which came from "hxxp://img.securepaynet.net/bbimage.aspx?pl=somecodeandmyemailaddress". The links in the emails I have seen point to "hxxp://dextersss-com-ua.1gb.ua/zzx.htm" among others. The phishing site and IP address and domain registration are in the Ukraine.
Thanks to Christopher and Dwight!
