“Email Quota Limit” Phishing Scam
Mar 22, 2012
A quick note to all of our customers:
A common e-mail scam from 2011 has resurfaced this week. We have received questions from some of our customers (both customers who use our e-mail service, and customers who use another e-mail service provider), about suspicious e-mails. Please note that these e-mails are NOT coming from Iceberg Web Design.
The text of these scam e-mails looks something like this:
This is to inform you that you have exceeded your E-mail
Quota Limit and in
less than 96 hours your E- mail Account will be disabled.
To increase your E-mail Quota Limit to 2.7GB, Fill in your

Iceberg keeps a close monitor on all of our e-mail servers and hosting accounts. We will never ask you to provide login information via an e-mail reply. If you have inadvertently replied to one of these scam e-mails with your username and password, we recommend changing your password immediately to prevent unauthorized access to your account.
Please contact Iceberg if you have any questions about this recent e-mail scam!
