Have you received a domain abuse notice from domaincop.org or domaincop.net?
A few days ago, we received an email from Evelyn Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org) entitled “Domain Abuse Notice”; we’ve had our share of investigations regarding this subject.
On July 27th 2015 we wrote about it on: http://www.theyucatantimes.com/2015/07/beware-of-chinese-domain-scams/, and now, there is a new method used. Here is the text from emails received by The Yucatan Times:

After a couple of days, we received another email, with the same exact content, from a different email address.
- Alfie Robinson (email@example.com)
We conducted a research and found that domaincop.org was registered on 22nd Nov 2016 (Today is December 1 2016, so, this was done 9 days ago). Here is the whois information:
This site was registered a few days ago, and updated the very same day, and has “Privacy Guard” enabled which means you cannot see the real owner’s name. Putting this in perspective, it seems odd that such a new business started analyzing domains and circulated mass emails quite fast. We searched on Google and found the domain has no DNS response when tested on cURL we found the domain does not exists in DNS… We also tried to call the number… It doesn´t exist.
If you ever receive any emails such as these, DO NOT OPEN the files or links. Just delete it.
Please beware and share with your friends so you do not become a victim of this scam!
