Believe it Or Not

Dear friends,

If you receive an email such as the one following this note do not answer it. The only proper response: DELETE.

This the email I received this evening:

Failure to verify your information will result in account suspension. If you are still interested in using our email service, Please click the reply button and fill the below spaces as requested.

Yahoo and AOL account holders also receive email attempting such trickery to get their information. Sometimes it is hard to know what is real and what is not, but SNOPES is one good source to check out these things. Another is simply to contact the ISP to ask. AOL is easier than the other two providers to get an answer from. Thanks for sharing the warning. I imagine a lot of people get fooled.

Thank you for visiting.
