Hello,

This sounds like a scam, but all I can say for sure is that it is definitely not from Homestead.

The domain is registered with tucows.com  is that not what Homestead registers all domains with. That should give you some idea who is sending these emails.

Tucows is the domain registrar that Homestead uses. As I said in my answer to the original question, Homestead did not send this email. Knowing the registrar doesn't tell us anything about who sent that email.

Elyzabeth I must say, I notice an attitude in your replies to me lately. This is uncalled for and very childish. Please refrain from it. This is not the way to help as an Official Rep.
