AOL users who have already received the phishing email message, and who have followed the instructions in it, are asked to change their AOL account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked by cybercriminals and used fraudulently.

AOL users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, they should instead, go directly to https://www.aol.com and sign-in from there. They will be notified of important changes or alerts after signing in if there is any.

    The request was received from your Aol account on mars 07, 2020 23:15 GMT.

    Sometimes these requests are made in error. If this deactivation was not requested by you, we ask that you submit your password in reply to this email.

    Once the current password on the account is verified the deactivation request will be canceled and your account will remain active.

    Be advised, once an account is deactivated it cannot be recovered.

    Thank You, The Aol Team"
