After #GDPR kicks in, no more data about “final notice” #domain scammers will be shared

If you’re getting a lot of email spam from “final notice” scammers, you’re not alone.

Those cybercriminals often hide in Asia or Europe, blasting emails to domain owners using WHOIS databases.

Their emails serve a dual purpose: to ping the recipient’s email validity, and to attempt further scamming for unnecessary services, such as this:

This important expiration notification notifies you about the expiration notice of your domain registration for [domain] search engine optimization submission. The information in this expiration notification may contain confidential and/or legally privileged information from the notification processing department of the Domain Seo Service Registration to purchase our search engine traffic generator. We do not register or renew domain names. We are selling traffic generator software tools. This information is intended for the use of the individual(s) named above. If you fail to complete your domain name registration [domain] search engine optimization service by the expiration date, may result in the cancellation of this search engine optimization domain name notification notice.

The upcoming implementation of the GDPR will affect how WHOIS information is shared by Registrars, and third party tools that assist with tackling cybercrime will be affected as well.

For example, the following information on a “final notice” email scammer’s domains will be impossible to obtain, once GDPR kicks in:

Operating from the email address “SOULCASERA@GMAIL.COM” this scammer owns almost 100 newly registered domains, mainly at GoDaddy. The fake WHOIS shows an address in India, but the servers are hosted in Europe, primarily in Ukraine, blasting out spam 24/7.

  1. Of course, the spammer will also have difficulties sending his spam without email addresses in whois. Depending on what the interim solution looks like.

  2. DomainGang says:

    Frank – They already have info on 300+ million domains, that rarely changes. Do you change your admin email monthly?
