    Hello,

    Can I have an email address to forward a phishing email some of my clients received yesterday?

    Email pretends thats is sent from cPanel.

    Title:
    Please verify your email address my-domain.com-ID136833

    Message:
    Due to inactivity, your business email address *****@my-domain.com will be automaticaly removed

    Cancel Removal !

    *You will be asked to relogin to your cPanel Webmail account and we will automatically cancel the removal process and reinstate your business email address.

    You should check the header for that email and find the Hosting Provider to report to there. You can also submit the URL here if you like:

    Most importantly, if you think any of your clients may have clicked any link in the email, you should change their passwords.

    These emails are not a new issue, they seem to pop up every few years. If you google a bit you can find mentions of them: cpanel phishing email
