You may have received emails like the one below but with your domain information instead of where I have inserted yourdomain.com, these are legitimate emails that are required to be sent out by ICANN the Governing body for all Top Level Domains (TLDs) such as .com/.net/.org/etc.
Please be aware that if you do not click the link to verify your details your domain will be suspended. If you have not received one of these emails or are not sure if you have the correct contact information saved for your domain(s), then log in to your account now and check your details are up to date and your email address is valid.
The email you will receive will look like this:

Subject: IMPORTANT VERIFICATION required for yourdomain.com
Please be advised that as of the 1st January 2014 it has now become a mandatory requirement from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Name and Numbers (ICANN) that all ICANN accredited registrars verify the WHOIS contact information for all new domain registrations, domain transfers and registrant contact modifications.
You have received this email as you have recently transferred one or more domains to Darker Information Technology Solutions with the following registrant details:

Under the changes requested by ICANN you need to verify your registrant email address. Please click on the link below to verify this email address.
You have 15 days from the time the transfer completed to verify your email address. If your email address is not verified within these 15 days the domain name(s) will be suspended until the email address is verified.
Once the link above is clicked this email address and the domains listed below will be instantly verified.
