SBC Global E-mail alert
Is this SBC Global e-mail alert dated Saturday September 19, 2009, that says my e-mail account will be closed in 48 hours valid? I just got it this morning Tuesday September 21, 2009.

hi imsohappy!

do you still have a copy of that email alert telling you abt the termination of your email account in 48 hours? you may post it here so we can try to check what it meant or why your email will be closed.

it may or may not be a valid email alert. it actually depends on the reason why it will suddenly close your email account.

has there been any change with your email service lately? billing issues? spam (excessive outgoing mail activity) issues?

hi salinairon!

the email you posted above is a phishing/scam email. DO NOT reply or provide any account-specific information to that email.

tons of these kinds of phishing/scam emails have been circulating, trying to trick users of providing their email ID, pword and other specific info.

to report this scam, just forward the email you received to the address below:
abuse@att.net
phishing@cc.yahoo-inc.com

after that, make sure to delete the email.

hope this helps! :smileyhappy:
