Currently, high-profile domain registrars are being targeted for phishing attacks against domain owners.
Some of the attackers use Realtime Register branded emails to target our resellers and their end users. The fraudulent emails claim that a particular domain name has been suspended, and ask users to click a link. The emails are sent from the email address abuse[at]realtimeregister.com.org, or something similar.
We ask you, as a Realtime Register reseller, to be alert of these fraudulent emails. We strongly advise you to communicate this information to your customers and end users.
