There are some emails being sent which are pretending to be from 123 Reg. Our fraud and abuse teams are investigating and we can confirm that the email address is being sent from: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Copy Of Your Invoice with a fake invoice number.
123 Reg mails contain proper formatting, branding and spelling, while the email headers would mention only 123 Reg/Hosteurope/Webfusion servers names.
If you receive this email, we strongly advise you to not open the attachment, as it could contain malicious code. Depending on the security solution installed on your machine (along with operating system updates and so on), chances are no damage has been done. Nevertheless, in such scenarios, it is highly recommended at least running a quick scan with an antivirus/antimalware solution such as AVG, Malwarebytes etc.
Please always look at the sender email address, you can click this to see where the email comes from. Please always keep your virus checker updated.
You can read more on how to spot dodgy emails on our blog articles;
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to stop emails like this being sent, so always be vigilant with emails you receive and check their integrity.
For extra security, your invoices are accessible via your 123 Reg Control Panel.
