When you click the link in the message you are taken to a website asking for payment for your “Domain name search engine registration” starting at $75 for 1 year. For the avoidance of doubt this isn’t a thing. Most search engines will pick up your website in time and list it where they think its appropriate, if this isn’t as high as you expect its because you need to make changes to your website not because you haven’t paid some random company a fee.

If you try to leave the site you get the following popup. “Failure to complete your Domain name search engine registration date may result in cancellation of this proposal making it difficult for your customers to locate you on the web.”

Again, this simply a scare tactic, just ignore it and go about your dat.

Another variation of the same scam involves the following email linking to the same website.
