I received a similar notice from www.enom.com with a non-aligned link
embedded in the email. [thanks to Eudora for pointing that out]. I
typed in the direct address for the homepage [not the extended
phishing version] and found out they are a registrar. I just ditched the email.
I also had a near miss with my webhost. They sent an alert that my
domain was going to expire. It isn't until 2010. I wrote back quite
directly and told them to look at the DNS register where it clearly
shows that I am not registered through them, they are just my host
and that the expiry date is 2 years from now. They apologized and
thanked me for hosting with them. I have no idea if it was a records
screw up or a phish.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
