Domain Listings – Website Listing Service

This is an example of a snail-mail phishing scam! If you receive a notice requesting payment for your xxxxxxxxx.illinois.edu website or domain, you do NOT need to pay it. University websites and sub-domains are managed internally.

Below is an example of a fake invoice. You’ll notice that it says it is NOT a bill, but an offer, which acts as legal cover for this kind of fraud.
