ICANN Alert on Phishing Scam Email

ICANN is alerting the community to a phishing scam that involves emails sent from “sales@icann.org” sent to ICANN contracted parties.

The sales@icann.org email address, for example, is not a valid ICANN organisation email address. Contracted parties may have recently received emails from “accounting@erp.icann.org”, which is a valid ICANN org email address. If you receive an email from the “sales@icann.org” address, or any other suspicious email address, do not respond. Please forward the email in its entirety to globalsupport@icann.org.
