I might be a GoDaddy affiliate, but this is a still a really weird email to receive.
Hello, Chris BaileyGoDaddy.com, LLC has sent you $0.01 USDNOTE FROM GoDaddy.com, LLC:Payment for $0.01 to vendor 1897109 from Go Daddy.

That message just came from PayPal this morning.
I thought it might be a phishing attempt, so I checked my PayPal account(going there from my bookmarks, not from the links in the email) and sure enough, there was a whopping penny sent to me from GoDaddy.
I’m headed out the door shortly so I’ll have to check into this a little further later today and update this post, but it’s just so weird.
I just wanted to see if anyone received this windfall as well, lol.
🙂 I never did get around to checking into that awesome penny payment, but this morning I just received a nickel, woohoo. 😀
Same standard message:

I couldn’t really find an explanation that made sense to my situation and I don’t feel like bothering with GoDaddy support, so it’s still somewhat of a mystery to me.
However, here are a couple threads from 2014 that could explain any mystery payments someone else has received from GoDaddy: Godaddy sent me $19.90. What does it mean? and Mysterious refunds from GoDaddy explained
