Yikes, Did someone just try a phishing scam using an ICANN email?

It seems not a single life on the internet is safe, someone just tried to trick users by sending the emails froma  supposed ICANN legit email address and now The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has issued an alert that someone is running a phishing scam impersonating ICANN.

The perpetrator apparently targeting contracted parties from a sales (at) icann.org.

ICANN says

The sales@icann.org email address, for example, is not a valid ICANN organization email address. Contracted parties may have recently received emails from “accounting@erp.icann.org”, which is a valid ICANN org email address. If you receive an email from the “sales@icann.org” address, or any other suspicious email address, do not respond. Please forward the email in its entirety to globalsupport@icann.org.
