“Email Quota Limit” Phishing Scam

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:
