GoDaddy It seems this is new type of scam, the godday number is (02) 8042 8920, yes I have account with them however I never received any call like this before, they asked my credit card and access code to lookup my account but I felt suspicious about the call, I said I used FB to login and I dont know about any other thing. They said its bill related issue, I then asked why not sending me an email about it, and then the person said they will. After that I went back their site and found that (02) 8042 8921 has nothing to do with them. WATCH OUT HIS!! blocked number due to info on this useful website Male caller called to tell me there was 'an Alert' on my domain. Asked me to verify my postcode (I did and he confirmed, but this does not mean much - could be data gathering). Knew I hosted elsewhere asked why I did (told them). I asked him to tell me about the Alert - he then said he thought my domain setting wasn't 'Private' but now saw that it was... I asked where he was calling from - Arizona. I asked him who he voted for. He shut down and we pretty much hung up then. Spoke to the official Godaddy centre. Definitely NOT from Godaddy. 100% Scam Caller: Go Daddy
Go Daddy calling
just calling to check website ok... Caller: Scam
Opened Godaddy site, calls began within 30 mins, definitely spam.
Said they were calling to see if everything was ok with the website. I said yes. Said something about security and I said nope, everything is fine. He said, ok, just call us if you need any thing. Wasn't pushy.
they call either showing desparately way of informing themselves about you impersonating companies that are neccessarily had Australian benefits given to you so they will try to investigate more about what you have earned out of discountability or benefits of the country and try to offer you a better deal in the same time do not give them any of your identity over the phone specially if they have gathered you information from an email if its got your surname on a seccond email they will also try to identify you more as they are getting closer at retrieving your data Scammers, Block the number Caller: (02) 8042 8921
Rings everyday - annoying.
I have blocked.
Just because they say they are from Godaddy doesn't mean they are the real Godaddy. They are calling me on a number that isn't listed on my Godaddy contact but is listed on a website I have hosted through Godaddy. I called the real Godaddy after returning the call to the fake Godaddy. In dealing with Godaddy for more than 14 years, I think I would have received unsolicited calls from them before now if (02) 8042 8921 wasn't a scam caller.
I dont answer calls I dont know and this forum was helpful in me determining whether I need to call back. What concerns me is that yes I do have an account set up with GoDaddy which I only set up a couple of weeks ago, so how did they get my number, cant be a coincidence. Who has been breached? My site or GoDaddy's database? it is GoDaddy, and I do have an account, but the call is unsolicited and therefore spam. That's not right. I have had valid calls from GoDaddy. Anonymous twat posts a useless message and then tells others to get a life. And this does not mean that they are godaddy! scam Definitely a scam. This above idiot has left the exact same indignant message on two separate websites. Why he would get so upset, nobody knows. Very fishy.
