New type of phishing spam targeting domain owners

I get 300 to 500 spams per day and Mail Washer Pro does a darned good job of removing the crap.  This last day or so I’ve been noticing a new type of spam targeting the owner of my domains.  Text is below.   The right most two domain chunks, in this case, have varied substantially among the spams.   Looks like that particular domain isn’t working.

The text of the spams has varied slightly but this is the general theme.  At least from what I could recall as it didn’t dawn on me to think about how many of these spams I’d been receiving until just now.
