Fake "GeekSquad.com" Domain

[ Edited ]

On 8/22/2021, I received a fake email from "geeksquad@emailinfo.geeksquad.com".

 

Does BestBuy have a domain named "geeksquad.com"?

 

Whois shows the domain email contact as "domain.admin@BESTBUY.COM".

 

This implies Best Buy is involved with domain "geeksquad.com".

 

What is going on here?

 

Thanks

Re: Fake "GeekSquad.com" Domain

Welcome to our community, John5993.

 

We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention, it was absolutely the best thing to do.

 

The information displayed on Whois is correct: Best Buy owns the GeekSquad.com domain. Until a few years ago, Geek Squad was represented by its own website. It was then merged with BestBuy.com to give our customers one unified website through which to pursue all their needs.. If you visit the domain in your browser, you will find that it opens BestBuy.com's services portal.

 

I hope this helps. Thank you for writing to us.
