The Web Hosting Invoice Scam

There’s a postal mail scam going around whereby a company is sending out fake invoices for web hosting. It’s similar to the fake domain renewal notice scam that goes around.

This scam has been going on for some time. The company names and addresses have varied and changed over time, but names they use (and have used) include: Web Host Agents, Certified Web, Main Street Web Pros, Sunshine Biz Services and more.
