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
From: [dontreply@aol.com]

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.

Thank you,

AIM Service Team
