This scam appears to making the rounds again. I see it on a regular basis. If you receive a message similar to the one below, from any Internet Service Provider (ISP) you should ignore it.

No reputable ISP would ever ask you to verify your information in this way. Don't be sucked in by people trying to steal your information.


Original Text of Message:

Dear EarthLink User,

We regret to inform you, but due to a recent system flush, the
billing/personal information for your account is temporaly unavailable, and we need to verify your identity.

In order to continue using your EarthLink account and keeping it active, you must provide us with your full information within 24 hours of recieving this e-mail.

To re-enter your account information and keep your account active,



Alfred Gregs

EarthLink Billing Department
