Have you recently registered a domain name and received an email telling you that “Our records indicate that you have not yet verified your registered email id for ___________________.com”?
This has now happened to me twice, and both times it has been within a week of registering a new domain name. If you get the following email (or anything similar to it) – do NOT click on the link in the email. Pretty sure this company is fishing for domain names and unknowing suspect will have their registrars transferred to a different domain name registrar.
Here’s the email:

It appears to be send from “DomainSuppport at Kayako.com” – when you click reply it goes to admin at salesuit.com – and the clickable link is to searchregistry.biz (but the anchor in the searchregistry.biz link actually goes to salesuit.com php…
I’m not sure if this is a virus or if it’s just a fishing scheme for info – but my advice is to ignore this email as this company is definitely scamming unsuspecting people.
