Your AIM account will be deleted
I received dozens of scam emails with the subject line, Your AIM account will be deleted, this weekend. The emails read:
Subject: Your AIM account will be deleted
Dear AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) user,
Your AIM account is flagged as inactive. Within the following 72 hours it’ll be deleted from the system.
If you plan to use this account in the future, you have to download and launch the latest update for the AIM. This update is critical.
In order to install the update use the following link. This link is generated exclusively for your account and is available within a certain period of time. As soon as this link is not available anymore you will get another letter.

This is a scam email designed to steal personal details from you. If you receive a Your AIM account will be deleted email, simply delete it. DO NOT follow the link and DO NOT enter any of your personal details.
I receive over 30 of these AIM Account deletion emails this weekend, so there must have been hundreds and thousands of them sent out, so please don’t be one of the thousands that will give away their details to these scam bastards!
If you receive a “Your AIM account will be deleted” scam email, that has a variation from the details above, we’d love to hear from you. Have a mighty fine day!
