Hi,

Its a fishing e-mail, i don't use AOL but check if you have some way to report the mail as SPAM after that simple delete the message.

The page on that links try to mimic the legit AOL page to deceive uses to input the user name and password. Don't do this!

Always access the mail page typing the address on the browser address bar, then you can save the site on Favorites to easy access.

• Please do not PM me asking for support. Post on the forums instead it will increases the chances of getting help for your problem by one of us.
• Posts in the Malware section that are not replied to within 4 days will be closed. PM me or a moderator to reactivate.
• Please post your final results, good or bad. We like to know! Thank you!
