radix, those emails that you are referring to are specifically targeted to .org registrants. Of the thousands of domains that I have registered, the "Final Notice of Domain Notification" were only emailed for .org domains. The most logical reason for this is that most .org registrants do not develop/maintain their own sites, but rather subcontract the work out and as a result are easier marks for the scammers. The scam email also has an action date set for the following day to create urgency.
