    Got this little gem this morning (haven't been a customer in a very long time); obviously the return address is NOT Damn/Thrust but watch out!

    Yeah that's a pretty obvious scam email. I hope no one falls for it. I suspect you've already reached out to DamnVPS and let them know? Have they returned a statement?

    Crazy stuff.

    I flagged it as soon as I read the badly worded first sentence.

    Yes, it's pretty obvious but perhaps not to all which is why I posted. I cross posted this to LET but go the usual smart arse attitude completely missing the point that the reason scams work is because some people are vulnerable. Whatever.

    Yeah I pinged them but no reply, not going to waste any time on it since I'm no longer a customer.

    I'm a former customer, and haven't gotten the email, so I don't think it was a database leak.  Unless they just haven't gotten to me yet, or it just got completely rejected.

    Their site is still offline - guess they're gone - ?

    Not that I really care.  I thought their service was garbage when I tried it.

    @Jack - What are the data breach laws like in the UK? I'm wondering if IOMART has already gone to the authorities over it.
