“Domain Suspended” Spam Mail

Here is the full text of a spam-mail going around — be warned!

Dear Sir/Madam,

The following domain names have been suspended for violation of the ENOM, INC. Abuse Policy:

Domain Name: <domainname>.COM
Registrar: ENOM, INC.
Registrant Name: DOMAIN SALES

Multiple warnings were sent by ENOM, INC. Spam and Abuse Department to give you an opportunity to address the complaints we have received.

We did not receive a reply from you to these email warnings so we then attempted to contact you via telephone.

We had no choice but to suspend your domain name when you did not respond to our attempts to contact you.

Click here and download a copy of complaints we have received.

Please contact us for additional information regarding this notification.

This is a tricky one to spot as spam, as ENOM is a legitimate registrar, and could therefore have cause to suspend a domain for violation of an abuse policy. Note, however, that the purported abuses are not actually specified in the email. Checking the return email address (not shown here) tells us that the sender is stated to be abuse@enom.com.org — an obvious “tell” as no legitimate email address would end with both .com and .org.
