La truffa dei domini che scadono

Vi giro una mail che abbiamo ricevuto oggi in quanto gestori del sito di un cliente. La lettera è scritta bene e mette fretta, soprattutto, nella parte che ho messo in grassetto. Stai lavorando, vuoi evitare che il tuo sito abbia problemi. La cifra è piccola, è facile pagare senza pensarci. Uno potrebbe pensare. Ma come posso non cascarci? Con un controllo whois un tecnico li becca subito. Ma l'uomo della strada come fa? Basta una ricerca su Google per vedere che questi ci provano da parecchio tempo e trovare subito un articolo che ne parla. (ho sostituito la parola PIPPO ai dati "sensibili" che riguardavano il cliente)
