Domain with godaddy but phishing with Google Mail

What do I need to do to get a domain taken down which is registered with godaddy but using googlemail to send email impersonating someone else using the domain.


Its been 3 days now and have reported to Godaddy and Google and no update at all. Been chasing this all day yesterday but got nothing back.


Godaddy is investigating but its been happening for 3 days now!!!!

Hi @jailbroken. Welcome to GoDaddy Community. In a situation like this, the best thing to do is work with the email provider that is sending the messages. Based on what you've said, the domain registrant might not even know that this is happening. If that's the case, the domain may not be suspended or redirected. My suggestion would be to continue to pursue the issue with Google if that is the mail provider.
