A client of mine forwarded me this email they sent her about her website. We both have suspicions that it’s a scam to trick us into registering an unnecessary domain with them, but googling yielded no results with the wording of their letter (usually with scams, you’d find them popping up everywhere). So I thought I’d run it past you guys first, get some feedback, before just telling her to ignore the email.

Have any of you gotten an email like this?
For one thing, the IP address “35.18.307.43” isn’t real.
And have any of you even heard of “Mobi Registrations” before?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
